There will be a chance this week to see a screening of the feature-length documentary about The Levellers, along with a concert by the band afterwards.

Told through the unique perspective of Jeremy Cunningham, the band’s bass player and artist, and directed by former Chumbawamba frontman Dunstan Bruce, A Curious Life focuses on the anarchic acts’ phenomenal success between 1988 and 1998 before nearly disintegrating in a train wreck of drink, drugs and creative drought. The screening will be followed by a full live acoustic gig by the band.

See it all at the Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight on Tuesday from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £22.50. Go to shanklintheatre.com
