  • Mosaics in Ravenna

    Drinks from 7pm. One-hour lecture at 8pm.

    Free lecture!  No entrance fee.  Everybody is welcome to attend.

    The mosaics of Ravenna were created during great political turmoil. In the fifth and sixth centuries, invaders played havoc with the western Roman Empire. In spite of this, artists and church leaders created churches of astonishing beauty. This lecture looks at Galla Placidia, San Vitale and the Orthodox Baptistry. It pays particular attention to Sant’ Apollinare Nuovo, the Arian baptistery and Sant’ Apollinare in Classe. The clash between Arian and Orthodox Christianity was reflected in the mosaics.

    Lecturer's Profile
    Christopher Herbert has lectured at the National Gallery, the Courtauld Institute, King’s College, London, Westminster Abbey, and the University of Rikkyo in Japan, and at churches and cathedrals throughout England and in Italy. He was until recently Bishop of St Albans and a member of the House of Lords. He has an MPhil and PhD in Art History from the University of Leicester. He was created Visiting Professor in Christian Ethics in the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey, and has also been awarded two honorary doctorates. He is an honorary citizen of Fano, Italy.

  • Richmond Film Society - Screening of 'Hotel Salvation' (India)

    Following the success of its relocation to The Exchange in January, Richmond Film Society has decided to extend its current Season by two films, the first of which is 'Hotel Salvation', the comedy/drama directed by Shubhashish Bhutiani.

    Convinced that his end is near, 77-year-old Daya resolves to spend his last days in the holy city of Varanasi and insists upon his dutiful son, Rajiv (an overworked accountant), accompanying him to a hostel on the banks of the Ganges where elderly believers go to die and find salvation. In the event, the atmosphere has a restorative effect and the scene is set for a beguiling, tender and humorous tale of self discovery, tradition and modernity, family ties and reconciliation. 

    This (and the next) additional screening is free to all members in appreciation of making the venue transition so successful. Non-member tickets will, as usual, be available for £6 on the door (cash only), in advance via The Exchange’s Box Office on 020 8240 2399 or online via their website at http://exchangetwickenham.co.uk/box-office

    The smash hit Marc Bolan musical

    This hit musical, inspired by the life of rock legend Marc Bolan, comes to the Rose to mark the 40th anniversary of the iconic star’s untimely death. Featuring some of the greatest rock songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the life story of the legendary Bolan and his band T. Rex. This show exposes some of the myths and takes the audience on a tearful yet feel-good journey through Marc’s fascinating life, cut short by a cruel twist of fate.

    At his peak, Bolan was arguably the biggest rock star the UK had ever seen. Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam and godfather of punk – Marc Bolan became a superstar and the press dubbed him “Bigger than the Beatles”. Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans. 20th Century is a glorious celebration of glam rock at its colourful best!

  • Byzantium: The Two Eyes of Europe - How the Latin west and Greek east drifted apart - A Talk by Lord True

    This fascinating lecture will focus on Italy as the bridge and dividing line, between the two Europes that emerged from the collapse of Roman power in the West in the Fifth Century AD. It will illustrate the influences of the surviving Roman Empire centred at Constantinople (Istanbul) still visible in Italy, but examine the progressive alienation between the two Europes, in language, religion, politics, art and trade, and the creation of a rival concept of ‘Europe’ under Charlemagne; the schism between the Catholic and Orthodox churches; military attacks from the West against Eastern Christians; and the annexation of the Byzantine Eastern Mediterranean trade and territory by the Italian mercantile powers.

    The talk will ask, more widely, if a perception of the inferiority of eastern Christian culture still distorts modern attitudes to the countries of the Orthodox world. Can a relationship of mutual respect be established between East and West?

    Thursday 10 May 2018, Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at for 7:30pm

    The Ruling Class

    The Ruling Class by Peter Barnes

    Directed by Barry Evans

    An uproarious satirical comedy with a sting in the tail

    “First thing an Englishman does, straight from his mother’s womb, is touch his forelock.”

    A blue-blood with a Messiah complex, the 14th Earl of Gurney is besieged by his ruthless family scheming to strip him of his title. Bubbling with acerbic wit and feverish energy, Olivier Award-winning and Oscar-nominated-writer Peter Barnes's razor-sharp satire mercilessly exposes the absurdity of unearned privilege. It became a successful feature film starring Peter O’Toole.

    Sherlock Holmes: The Final Curtain

    Could this be the final curtain for the world’s greatest detective?

    Sherlock Holmes lives in retirement on the South Coast. He keeps bees, occasionally casts his fly fishing rod, even plays his Stradivarius when the rheumatism allows.

    All too aware that he’s older and slower, he’s concerned that he might have lost his touch, paranoid that he is an easy target for his enemies. There have been so many over the years. He never truly believed Moriarty - his arch nemesis - died at the Reichenbach Falls.

    So when Mary Watson (wife of his former associate Dr John Watson) tracks him down, telling him she has seen her long-dead son, James, through the window of 221B Baker Street, apparently alive and well, Holmes is determined to solve the mystery and confront his own demons at the same time.

    Chilling, gripping and filled with unforeseen twists and revelations, this new thriller has been commissioned by Theatre Royal Bath from award-winning dramatist Simon Reade, previously Literary Manager at the Royal Shakespeare Company, This world premiere production reunites the dream team of Robert Powell and Liza Goddard following huge acclaim for their performances in Single Spiesand Relatively Speaking.

    Robert Powell received multiple awards and a BAFTA nomination for his portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zefferelli’s Jesus of Nazareth. His numerous credits include Holby City on television and Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and King Charles III on stage.

    Liza Goddard is one of the UK’s favourite actresses. Her extensive stage credits include Lady Windermere's Fan, An ideal Husband and Alan Ayckbourn's Communicating Doors and Season’s Greetings. Her television work includes cult classics Doctor Who and Bergerac.

    Richmond Film Society - Screening of 'Le Havre' (Finland)

    Following the success of its relocation to The Exchange in January, Richmond Film Society has decided to extend its current Season by two films, the second of which is 'Le Havre', the drama/comedy directed by Aki Kaurismäki. RFS is also presenting a special screening of 'The Florida Project' on 12 June as part of the Twickenham Festival.

    When a young African stowaway arrives by cargo ship in the port city of Le Havre, Marcel, an ageing shoe shiner takes pity on the child and, with the assistance of friendly neighbours and locals, hides him from the police.

    Like ‘The Other Side of Hope’ - which proved hugely popular when screened earlier this Season by RFS - ‘Le Havre’ is another instalment in Kaurismäki’s proposed trilogy about life in port cities. Once again, it deals with immigration and attitudes to refugees but it does so with all of Kaurismäki’s trademark lightness of touch, drollery and deadpan humour. The result is an offbeat, warmhearted and charming film, which garnered fifteen awards worldwide, including at the 2011 Cannes, Chicago and Munich Film Festivals.

    This additional screening and that of 'The Florida Project' are free to all members in appreciation of making the venue transition so successful. Non-member tickets will, as usual, be available for £6 on the door (cash only), in advance via The Exchange’s Box Office on 020 8240 2399 or online via their website at http://exchangetwickenham.co.uk/box-office
