Jim Black’s quartet plays music based on the idea of mixtapes and playlists: it changes every few minutes, a ‘short attention span’ approach keeping the listener on the edge of their seat. Black became known through drumming for fellow US luminaries Tim Berne and Dave Douglas, and now his propulsive, off-kilter rock grooves and electronics are balanced by the warm tone of Icelandic saxophonist Óskar Guðjónsson.

Cheltenham Ladies' College, Parabola Arts Centre

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
