A brilliant half term activity.

Mini Medics offers first aid training for 7-11-year-olds, delivered in a fun and engaging way. Children practise bandaging each other, take turns to use a choke vest and also use CPR manikins. They learn to indentify dangers in the home and find out about public access defibrillators.

GTE is pleased to be hosting a Mini Medics course this half term, as part of our commitment to community engagement.

Next session takes place on 16th February 10am-noon in the heart of Portishead.

It costs just £15+ vat and could be the best £15 you ever spend.

Speakeasy Jazz Club at Clarence House Presents, Andy Hague's 'Double Standards'

Starts: 20:30 On 24 February 2023 | Ends: 23:30 On 24 February 2023

What a wonderful start to our spring programme! Andy Hague calls ‘Double Standards’ his dream band. They are masters of their craft and perform with great style and class, playing standards by Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock among others. 

Andy Hague is one of Bristol’s most significant and best loved jazz talents – a fine trumpeter and drummer and a stalwart of the city’s jazz scene. Andy has played on the albums of Portishead and toured with them in the US. In 2016, he appeared as part of the Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley ‘Back to Jazz’ Big Band and often plays at the Bristol International Jazz & Blues Festival as well as Ronnie Scott’s. He also played alongside US trumpet and flugelhorn legend, Bobby Shew in 2017. 

London-based Jonathan Taylor is a wonderfully melodic pianist who has worked alongside Pee Wee Ellis, Iain Bellamy, Andy Sheppard, Ruby Turner and is a founder member of the UK’s leading Tango ensemble, ‘Midnight Tango’. He also featured with Vincent and Flavia on Strictly Come Dancing. 

With Hendrick Jensen’s singing double bass tone and Gwilym Jones’ youthful talent on drums, these wonderful musicians skilfully blend and will be playing compositions from the American Songbook as well as from Andy’s own jazz heroes with a sprinkling of his own amazing compositions.  

The Guardian described them as, “straight-ahead, high-energy jazz”.  

What a night this will be! The band will bring an intimate and yet explosive quality that audiences love. 

Show 8.30pm. Doors open 7.30pm. Admission is £20. No membership required. For advanced ticket sales contact Kate Sheridan using the links below.
