UK trio Vula Viel take you on a unique musical journey led by Bex Burch. Playing the Gyil (a traditional Ghanaian xylophone), she takes the instrument into new territory with bassist Ruth Goller and drummer Jim Hart. Described as ‘Ghanaian minimalism’, their grooves seamlessly blur Steve Reich, jazz, post-punk and traditional music from Ghana. The band’s name means ‘Good is Good’ in the Dagaare language so prepare for an uplifting Sunday morning.

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.
