Spirit of '45: 21 October
An impassioned documentary about how the spirit of unity which buoyed Britain during the war years carried through to create a vision of a fairer, united society.
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother’s and our sister’s keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain’s regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews, to create a rich political and social narrative. The Spirit of ’45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.
Sponsored by Bakewell & the Peaks branch of the Labour Party.

Ian McMillan & Luke Carver Goss: 4 November
Poet, broadcaster and comedian Ian McMillan and musician Luke Carver Goss in a hilarious night of comedy, poetry and anecdotes, climaxing in a brand new ‘musical’ made up on the spot about your community and the people in it.
Be careful what you let slip to famous poet, broadcaster and comedian Ian McMillan as he mingles with you before this show starts. It’s dangerously likely your village secrets will come out in the hilarious improvised musical he and composer Luke Carver Goss create in the second half! But watch your step as the second half begins and Ian gets his flip chart out! Local legends, ghosts, gossip, notorious village residents – it’s all fair game as your community is the star in a made-up-on-the-spot musical skit.
The atmosphere is all jolly good fun, as you’re asked to join in with some songs and shout out ideas, while Ian and Luke do the hard work in stringing it all together to keep you in stitches. Ian is a fine and talented host, and Luke’s skill on the accordian keeps pace.
Their pedigree is mighty: Bard of Barnsley, Ian McMillan hosts weekly hit BBC radio show ‘The Verb’ and is a hugely recognisable voice across all radio stations and TV such as Countryfile, BBC Breakfast and Coast. He’s Poet-in-Residence for Barnsley FC, and, until recently, English National Opera, and has been cast away on Desert Island Discs.
Luke Carver Goss has a long history with rural touring – being the stunning accordianist with Szapora and The Devil’s Violin. He’s much in demand and when not working with Ian McMillan has written for Black Dyke Brass Band, The Sage Gateshead and BBC National Orchestra of Wales. He records and performs with his own group, the acclaimed Carver Trio, the Balkan singer Tea Hodzic and jazz singer Tina May.
John Hegley: New & Selected Potatoes: 12 November
