NICK HARPER PERFORMS A WILTSHIRE TALE at The Cube Microplex Sat 5 May 2018 from 07:30 pm



From sell-out tours to a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival run Nick enters his third decade as a performer with a vitality that could put younger musicians to shame. It is no surprise that artists and producers as diverse as Squeeze, Lana Del Rey, Newton Faulkner, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), The Levellers, Jakko Jakszyk (Level 42, King Crimson) and legendary producer Tchad Blake have collaborated with him.  Although commonly placed within the 'folk' idiom this is not a man easily pigeonholed into existing musical genres; Nick is very much blazing his own trail. Tonight he will present to the Cube A Wiltshire Tale, a play, that he has written himself.

A Wiltshire Tale is a journey through Wiltshire’s history, landscape and wildlife. Depicted through spoken word, poetry and live music.

During the evening Nick will perform two sets for us of around an hour each. The first of these will begin at 8.15 (doors at 7.30) when he presents A Wiltshire Tale. The second will concentrate more on his music. This play is written and performed by Nick Harper and presented by The Sailisbury Playhouse.

Bristol has strong sense of social responsibility. From the protests rallied against Tesco, to the community boosting Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft. The Cube cinema is another excellent example. In 1998 a group of Artists who at the time ran “underground mobile cinema events” took it over and turned it into what it is today. It stands equally as both a cinema and an arts venue. Inside it has a raised stage and tiered seating, in the old theatre style, which can hold just over 100 people.

Driven by a strong set of ethics it refuses to serve Nescafe and even goes as far as to make its own brand of cola called (funnily enough) Cube Cola.

The cinematic screenings it puts on are always more interesting than what will be on at your local Odeon and it shows a lot of world cinema which we may never come across without it. The same goes for the live music events. The gigs are varied and include art and dance performances, live concerts, discussions and theatre.

Please note, The Cube Microplex is an independent cinema and requires membership to attend events, this will cost you just one pound on your first visit and lasts a life time.
