By Luke Wright
After the Fringe First-winning success of What I Learned from Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back with a stunning new spoken word show - The Toll.
Fresh from supporting John Cooper Clarke on tour, Wright is here to subject the English language to a series of degrading yet delightful tricks, all for your amusement.
The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time.
Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that sweats, bleeds and sings.

Please bring a picnic and come in smart attire. A fine evening awaits.

Celebrate 20 years of Britain’s premier classical open-air concert series with music, Spitfire, cannons, cavalry & fireworks!
Pack up the hampers and champers and join the crowd at the annual Battle Proms Concert, returning to the stunning grounds overlooking Burghley House on Saturday 8 July in 2017.
Last year over 7,000 people attended this very special event, now a firmly established favourite in the local calendar. Approaching its 13th year at Burghley, the series itself is celebrating 20 years since the first Battle Proms was staged, and there’s a reason it continues to grow year on year.
Concert-goers will be treated to an extraordinary afternoon and evening of entertainment at this party in the park with a difference.
The full 2 hour orchestral concert from the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, led by Douglas Coombes MBE and compered by much-loved BBC presenter Pam Rhodes, will include a host of well-known classical pieces and conclude with a ‘last night of the proms’ sing-along with favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and more.
The musical programme will be augmented by a toe-tapping warm-up act, thrilling Napoleonic cavalry displays, a meticulously choreographed aerial display from a WWII Spitfire, The Red Devils parachute display team, live firing cannons and, of course, spectacular fireworks. The Battle Proms is still believed to be the only opportunity in the world to see their signature piece - Beethoven’s Battle Symphony - performed as he composed it: with 193 live Napoleonic cannon providing a thunderous percussion!

Hall Close, Clopton Road, Thurning, Peterborough, PE8 5RE
Adult £5, Accompanied Under 15 - FREE
£6 on the door on the night
This is a spectacular festival, which takes place on ....whichever day the 25th of July falls on! Thurning Feast is a unique annual event that takes place in July, in East Northamptonshire in a small village called Thurning.
There are many historical references to the Feasts held in centuries past, however the current event has continued with the same theme since it was revived in the 1970s after a long interruption caused by WWII. Thurning Feast is a medieval festival and was resurrected 40 years ago to raise funds for the church roof, over the years it has steadily grown, into the successful event it is today.
Attracting around 5,000 visitors, which come from miles around. This vibrant village feast brings the local community together in aid of raising funds now for the upkeep of Thurning Village Hall and the Church of St James. Thurning receives help from residents of surrounding villages and in turn raises funds to support their villages and chosen charities.
Alongside great live music, a funfair and children’s entertainment, Thurning Feast also offers a variety of multi-national foods and a fabulous selection of locally made cakes and teas for a quintessentially English experience.
