Drinking Habits - A Farce by Tom Smith

Barnwell Village Hall

Hemington Rd, Barnwell, PE8 5 QD

19:30 - 22:00

Doors open at 19:00

Tickets: £6 (non-allocated seating)

Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud, twist in the tale farce. Unbeknown to Mother Superior, two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent's doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail.

They go undercover in a series of barely believable guises and their presence becomes more ridiculous when combined with a new nun, a failed amateur magician turned Priest and teetotal Mother Superior all of which spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

The Wars of the Roses were a tumultuous period in English history, with family fighting family over the greatest prize in the kingdom - the throne of England.  Many families were involved but none symbolised the volatile nature of the period quite like the House of Beaufort. Their rise, fall, and rise again is the story of England during the fifteenth century, a dramatic century of war, intrigue and scandal both at home and abroad. Many books have been written about individual members of the dynasty, but never has the whole family been explored as one.

The hopes and fortunes of the family gradually came to rest upon the shoulders of a teenage widow named Margaret Beaufort and her young son Henry. From Margaret would rise the House of Tudor, the most famous of all England's royal houses and a dynasty that owed its crown to the blood of its forebears, the House of Beaufort. From bastards to princes, the Beauforts are medieval England's most captivating family.


Nathen is also the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK.

The work was written in 1863 at the request of Count Alexis Pillet-Will for his wife to whom it is dedicated. The composer, who had retired from more than 30 years before, described it as "the last of my péchés de vieillesse" (sins of old age).

The unusual scoring for voices, two pianos and harmonium is in the Neapolitan harpsichord tradition of the 18th century. The mass is structured in several extended movements in the tradition of the missa solemnis, but the composer labeled it petite with a grain of irony. He wrote on the last page of the manuscript:

"Dear Lord, here it is finished, this poor little mass... Not much technique, a little bit of heart, that’s all."

ODCS under their director, John Arkell, will be joined by soloists, Maureen Braithwaite; soprano, Catherine Griffiths; mezzo soprano, Andrew Kennedy; tenor and Keel Watson; bass, and will use the original accompaniment of two pianos and harmonium; Elizabeth Arkell and Quentin Thomas; pianos and Alec Hone; Harmonium.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Rowan Williams to talk about the life and work of Dean Peter Peckard. Dean Peckard was a former Dean of Peterborough Cathedral and Vice-Chancellor of Magdalen College, who was also a fierce campaigner against the slave trade. His pamphlet of 1778 – ‘Am I not a Man and a Brother?’ – was hugely influential on such activists as Thomas Clarkson and William Wilberforce. This is a rare chance to hear about a true unsung hero of Peterborough.

Bliss, 'Checkmate' - Ballet Suite

Full price: on the door £13, in advance £11
Concessions: on the door £11, in advance £9.
Children and students under 18, and students in full time education £3

Our Season's Finale takes us from Shakespeare's (and Leicester's) famous King in Walton’s 'Prelude to Richard III' to the emotion of Mozart’s dark and brooding 'Piano Concerto No. 20' with Anne Bolt as soloist. Mozart's D minor piano concerto is one of contrasts. The drama of the first movement is followed by the sublime Romance and then the lively Finale. The programme ends with the music Arthur Bliss wrote at the height of his powers in 1937 for his ballet ‘Checkmate’, which depicts the moves of Bishops, Knights, Kings and Queens as they clash in a dramatic game of chess. It is considered a cornerstone of the British ballet repertoire.

The Rutland Sinfonia welcomes wheelchair users to its concerts but so as to better prepare for their easier access and accommodation, if possible, we would be grateful if you could let us know you are planning to attend by emailing

The Rutland Sinfonia gratefully acknowledges the financial support of The Bliss Trust in putting on this concert.

High Jinks, High Seas and Highlanders

Weary of her Yorkshire county life of grouse moors and hunt balls, Amelia Dalton threw herself instead into converting a deep sea trawler into a holiday cruiser. She had to deal with the closed community of fishermen in NE Scotland in the 90s, negotiate red tape, oversee shipyards and deal with engineers, while coping with demanding shareholders and wayward employees. What began as a love affair with the romance of the sea became a battle to stay afloat financially and literally. This is a lively account of an adventure like no other and a voyage of self-discovery.

“Imagine A Year in Provence with the cast of Para Handy; add a touch of James Herriot, and you’ll get the drift of Mistress and Commander. Imagine Freya Stark, or some other dauntless female, taking on the alpha male communities of maritime Scotland and you’ll have the measure of Amelia Dalton.”  Peter Hughes, FT & Telegraph travel writer.

For ten years, Amelia Dalton organised cruises to the remote island chains of Scotland’s stunning West Coast. She worked closely with The National Trust for Scotland, and gained her commercial qualifications as a Captain. Amelia advises for individual clients on river and ocean cruises and runs her own travel company, Amelia Dalton Travel.

Director: German Kral

Release: 2015

Runtime: 1hr 25min

Argentinian Tango has become a universal phenomenom over the last hundred years, with its mix of rhythm and sensuality. This film looks at this extraordinary dance through the story of two of its greatest protagonists: Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years, until a painful separation tore them apart. In German Kral’s Buena Vista style study, the virtuosos reunite to tell their story to young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

‘A documentary that both celebrates and challenges the passions of dance.’ Abbey Bender, Village Voice

West St., Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe

Director: Kenneth Branagh

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 53min

Arriving in Istanbul for a relaxing holiday, the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot receives a telegram summoning him back to London. Soon the vigilant detective finds himself on board the luxurious Orient Express, sharing a carriage with an eclectic assortment of first-class travellers and an invisible murderer who walks unnoticed among them. When a sudden massive avalanche blocks the tracks, trapping the passengers on board the train, the gruesome murder of a commuter in his cabin forces Poirot to solve a conundrum where everyone is a suspect. Classic Agatha Christie.

'Branagh clearly has fun with the eccentric nature of the Poirot character, whose gift of insight is a blessing when it comes to solving crimes but a curse in its effects on his daily existence.' Brian Lowry,
