  Henry IV Part II
The Royal Shakespeare Company, Live From Stratford-upon-Avon

Wednesday 18 June, 7.00pm
Following his production of Richard II in October 2013, RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran continues his exploration of Shakespeare’s history plays with these epic, comic and thrilling visions of a nation in turmoil. RSC Associate Artist Antony Sher returns to play the infamous comic knight Falstaff. He is joined by Jasper Britton as Henry IV and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal.

King Henry's health is failing as a second rebellion threatens to surface. Intent on securing his legacy, he is uncertain that Hal is a worthy heir, believing him to be more concerned with earthly pleasures than with the responsibility of rule. Meanwhile, Falstaff gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets. Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend in a heartbreaking conclusion to this pair of plays.

This is the best of British theatre broadcast live to the big screen at Gala.

£15 (£13 conc), £10 Gala Friends


  From The Jam
The Public Gets What The Public Wants Tour

Friday 20 June, 7.30pm

With a catalogue that includes 18 Top 40 singles, they became the sound of British youth and one of the greatest bands in UK history. From The Jam, featuring former Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings, have a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Expect classic hits such as Going Underground and Town Called Malice alongside a load of live favourites.

“there may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road” LouderThanWar
