A shocking story about Tonya Harding is coming to the cinema. Don't miss it!

Friday
16 March
I, Tonya
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked----and checkered----glory.

Day by day… photographs by Richard Gaunt
Norwegian Church Arts Centre
Richard Gaunt has been taking photographs of everyday life for over 50 years. Not so much the great houses or the grand views, more the corner shops and the backstreets.

Well maybe, but with a lot of attention to lighting and composition: day by day is part a nudge to pay more attention to the stuff of daily life and celebrate things we tend to ignore.

Wales Millennium Centre
Belle & Sebastian, the legendary indie-pop band, have announced a new tour in support of their forthcoming album How to Solve our Human Problems, and will stop off at the Centre in March 2018. The Glasgow band who found fame in the late 90s with their debut album Tigermilk, caused a shock at the BRIT Awards in 1999 by winning Best Newcomers whilst being on an independent label – breaking through with the critically acclaimed album The Boy with the Arab Strap. Nine albums later, the group regularly tour worldwide, and have performed at illustrious venues such as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, as well as festivals such as Glastonbury and Latitude.
