    Wardrobes & Rings is a brand new three person theatre production that will transport you back to Oxford in 1963, to the Eagle & Child pub, where legendary authors J.R.R. Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis meet for what turns out to be the very last time. With great humour, wit, and fascinating stories, these remarkable lives are explored in this memorable piece of theatre. After the success of the 2016 one man theatre production ‘An evening with CS Lewis’, actor David Payne returns to the UK in September with Marc Whitmore for a limited run of performances.

    present

    Oscar Wilde's
    'The Importance Of Being Earnest'

     

    Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrief both find themselves sometimes pretending to be someone they are not.

    When Algernon discovers that his friend has created a fictional brother whenever he needs a reason to escape the dull country life, Algernon poses as the brother, resulting in ever-increasing confusion.

    They don't come any wilder than Oscar Wilde's wonderful classic comedy of manners, morals and morality.
    Presented in arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.

    Phil Beer in concertPhil Beer in concert

    Phil Beer is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music and half of the phenomenally successful Show of Hands.

    A solo concert by Phil is a treat for the ears.  His sublime playing and natural vocals create a range of emotions and images which will remain as happy memories for his audiences a long time after he has taken his final bow.

    A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top flight fiddler and plays in the all-star line-up, Feast of Fiddles. But his skills don’t stop there, he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing rich vocals.

    Born in Exminster, Devon, he started to play fiddle, guitar and mandolin while still at school in Teignmouth and habitually credits Davey Graham’s Folk, Blues & Beyond as his inspiration for acoustic music.

    He played his first gig at 14 and started working as a duo with Paul Downes in 1974 (their re-union Live at Nettlebed CD was released four years ago on the Talking Elephant label).

    He was then in the Arizona Smoke Revue and a key member of Johnny Coppin’s band. Phil's impressive track record also includes touring with Mike Oldfield and being a member of the feted Albion Band from 1984-1991.

    Show of Hands became a full-time partnership in the early '90s, a band that has gone on to sell out the Royal Albert Hall many times and has been voted Best Live Act, by the public, at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

    Phil, who also has his own Phil Beer Band, famously guested on the Rolling Stones Steel Wheels album and Steve Harley’s Poetic Justice.

    As a composer, Phil has written many numbers including the stunning instrumental The Falmouth Packet for Show of Hands’ album Witness.

    Don't miss this rare opportunity to enjoy an evening in the company of one of Folk music's legends.
