Blue Spirits sees Etheridge line up alongside violin legends Stephane Grappelli and Nigel Kennedy, classical guitar maestro John Williams, Pete Whittaker on organ and George Double on drums.

Critics have praised Etheridge for his versatility and showmanship, with The Guardian describing him as a musician “who can play everything from acid rock to gypsy swing – sometimes in the space of one solo”, while The Scotsman described the two-hour performances as “wonderfully personal and mind-bogglingly varied”.

Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, January 25

The film is an adaptation of the 1958 novel Mrs ‘Arris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico.

The Lost King, February 1

In this 12A rated film at, an amateur historian defies the stodgy academic establishment in her efforts to find King Richard III’s remains, which were lost for more than 500 years.

The quirky, heart-warming film, which stars Sally Hawkins and Steve Coogan, is based on the true story of the search for King Richard III’s remains and how they were ultimately uncovered underneath a car park in Leicester in 2012.

Directed by Stephen Frears, the film is based on the 2013 book The King’s Grave: The Search for Richard III by Philippa Langley and Michael Jones.
