Hidden Figures 

Meavy Film Club at Meavy Parish Hall
Saturday 11th November, at 7:30pm

Hidden Figures (PG)

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Geoff Lakeman

Geoff LakemanMeavy Parish Hall
Friday 24th of November, at 7:30pm

Geoff Lakeman is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and West Country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk and other music as varied as Jimmie Rodgers, the Louvin Brothers, Richard Thompson and Randy Newman. He's also one of the few to play 1920's/30's jazz on an authentic 1920's instrument.  

His smooth tenor vocals and unique concertina accompaniment have won him plaudits and fans over the years but it has only been since retiring from a long career as a Fleet Street Journalist that Geoff has truly spread his wings musically.
