Coming to Artix

An old favourite and an older production.

With their strong vocal harmonies, accompanied by the artistry of violin and guitar, Quill have been a part of the Midlands music scene for over thirty years. Amongst the line-up at their show on 15th August at Artrix is Birmingham rock legend Bev Bevan, who was the drummer and one of the original members of The Move and Electric Light Orchestra.

Throughout the show Quill will perform songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s right up to the present day, playing Fleetwood Mac-style rock and a set list of superb timeless classics, intermixed with brand new original material. Quill are performing at Artrix on Saturday 15th August at 8 pm. Tickets cost £17.00

After more than a decade of working in film and television on projects from Star Wars to Holby City, Hugh Quarshie returns to the RSC to star in a new production of Othello which is due to be screened at Artrix in early September.

Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.

Hugh will play opposite Lucian Msamati in the role of Iago, returning to the RSC following his role as Pericles in 2006. RSC Live Encore screening of Othello is at Artrix on Wednesday 2nd September at 7 pm. Tickets cost £15.00 (£12.00 students)

Tickets for all artix events are available from the box office on 01527 577330 or online at
