    - 8pm -

    Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.

    Saturday
    - 9pm -

    We are The Natterjacks, an indie folk duo hailing from the historic market town of Chesterfield in Derbyshire. We set out with our guitar and banjo, accompanied by the forceful thud of a kick drum and smatter of tambourine to create an energetic live atmosphere with sing-along choruses and foot stomping, banjo filled breakdowns.

    The duo consists of Freddie Bingham & Mark Evans. We began playing together in the winter of 2010 after being friends at school for a number of years and as time progressed, so did our music, leading to the formation of “The Natterjacks” with influnces from Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, The Avett Brothers, Bombay Bicycle Club and many more.

    Following our debut album, “Highlands” and our following EP, “In The Bark”, which led to slots on some top festivals including a set for BBC Introducing at Derbyshire’s Y Not Festival, we are now set to release our second album ‘White Peak’, with tracks from this album getting us our debut national radio play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.
