Write about what You Know
A comedy by Paul Gisby
30th & 31st March and 1st April 2017
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start
Barnwell Village Hall, Hemington Rd, PE8 5QD
A painfully comic evocation of a writers’ circle where members struggle with a variety of literary forms and with each other.
They meet each month in the local scout hut to discuss their work, exchange tips and seek mutual encouragement.
But closer examination of this disparate group reveals a whirlwind of love affairs, petty jealousy, rivalry and literary one upmanship.
Little Red Riding Hood (Pantomime)
Catworth Village Hall, Church Road, PE28 0PA
30th and 31st March at 8pm
1st April, matinee at 2:30pm, evening at 8pm
Tickets: Adults £6.50/ U16 £3.50
Cakes, cakes, where are my cakes?’ cries Grannie Hood, one of the cast members of the 2017 CATS Pantomime, Red Riding Hood.
Set in Dark Wood, the story intertwines the Red Riding Hood fairy tale with the Robin Hood fable and is set against a backdrop of a topical baking themed feud between Michelin star chef, Heston Lupus and the delectable Nigella Hood.
Come and see how Nigella thwarts Heston’s plans to dominate the Dark Wood Dessert economy and wince at the yeast addicted and cantankerous Grannie Hood. Watch as Red Riding Hood handles the charms of the Grey Wolf and marvel at the tracking skills of the Dark Wood wolf hunters.
Laugh at the hapless Marcus and Miranda as they try to scheme their way to owning their own restaurant. Join the Dark Wood ramblers as they search for Nigella’s large portions and cheer as Robin Hood and his politically correct merry men evade the nasty Sheriff of Peterborough and fight for the rights of the humble consumer.
Sing along with Alana A Dale’s awful madrigals, groan at the villager’s bad jokes and smile at Gwendolyn’s infernal cheerfulness. With twists and turns, songs, sound effects and wonderful costumes, this original pantomime written by Scott Millington, is a treat for all ages.

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.

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.
