We join the Archbishop, Terry and a host of other colourful characters as they travel around the world. Along the way, the Archbishop meets the Pope in Ghana, has a photo call with koalas, and meets the crowd via an ‘archmobile’ in Canada. He and his staff experience extreme weather conditions as well as some rather unusual local customs, entertainment and souvenir gifts, and an array of unfamiliar food and drink.


Whether navigating huge crowds or temperamental sound systems or dealing with the fact that their party has arrived at the wrong place or on the wrong day, the Archbishop remains affable and good natured, even when, despite Terry’s and the team’s best efforts, events descend into – in Runcie’s own words – ‘a bit of a shambles’. Terry’s engaging narrative also sheds light on the history of Lambeth Palace and the way in which the role of Archbishop of Canterbury has evolved over the years.


Terry Waite CBE was Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1980 to 1992.

Oundle Music School Department in association with BBC Radio Northampton and Oundle International Festival presents


Music in Unexpected Places


Friday, 4th October


Performance: 7:45pm


Tickets: £8 general / free for all pupils


This proved to be one of our most popular concerts when we first aired such an idea three years ago. Now, in conjunction with BBC Radio Northampton and the Oundle Interantional Festival, we're back for another evening of surprises and venues hitherto, perhaps, not even heard of!


We offer a stunning evening as the audience are split into smaller groups and taken in and around Oundle School's buildings and beyond: short historical facts about the buildings are then followed by diverse ensembles and solos from our talented musicians. Might we be able to take you into the unopened new sports Centre, or perform beside the swimming poool, perhaps a House dining room, or the old Tuck Shop of yesteryear? An engaging line-up is assured.


Please make any disability known to facilitate our planning: music@oundleschool.org.uk

York Waits:

Two Faces of Fotheringhay

English music in the 1480s and 1580s


Saturday, 5th October 2019

7pm - 9:30pm


St Mary's and All Saints Church, Fotheringhay

Main Street, PE8 5HZ


Tickets: £10 general

           £12.50 on the door

Almost exactly a century separates the violent deaths of Richard III – England’s most controversial king, slain in battle in 1485 – and Mary Queen of Scots, who was executed in 1587. There is a strange symmetry between the fates of Richard and Mary. He was born in Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire. She was beheaded there.


Between the lives and the deaths of the two doomed monarchs there were enormous changes in politics, culture, society and religion. Music too.


In separate projects and recordings, The York Waits – who play the wind and stringed instruments of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance – have explored the music of both the later 15th and 16th centuries. Now they bring the strands together and present a programme that highlights the contrasts – and some continuities – between the musical soundscapes of Plantagenet and Elizabethan England, with an excursion to the Scotland of the Stuarts.


In both periods, there were important influences and importations from the Continent, although the 15th century was a period when English composers also made a great impact throughout Europe.


Songs of 15th and 16th century England and Europe are sung by Deborah Catterall, and the Waits play instruments that include shawms and sackbuts, recorders, harp, organ, rebec, fiddle, flute, bagpipes, curtal and hurdy gurdy.

We are delighted to announce that anthropologist, author and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts is coming to Oundle as part of her national tour.


Alice has been delving into Britain’s past, and making archaeology programmes, for nearly twenty years. She joined Time Team as a bone expert before going on to present anthropology and archaeology stories on BBC Two’s immensely popular Coast series and co-presenting The Celts in 2015. Alice has presented seven series of Digging for Britain, sharing new archaeological discoveries from across the UK on BBC Four, and she has explored the history of our towns and cities in Britain’s Most Historic Towns on Channel 4 - which will be back with a second series in 2019.


She has written eight popular science and archaeology books, including Tamed: Ten species that changed our World and The Celts: Search for a Civilisation.


In this exclusive tour, Alice will share insights, anecdotes and behind-the-scenes stories from her personal journey to explore Britain’s past, with footage from her programmes and excerpts from her books. Each show will finish with 20 minutes Q&A.


This is a two-hour event including a twenty-minute interval. Suitable for all ages.

They never strain for laughs but are consistently amusing.’  The New York Times, Jason Zinoman

A relaxed screening* of the now legendary 1952 American musical-romantic comedy, offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to "talkies". Frequently regarded as the best film musical ever made and, as well as the title song, it includes the fabulously high energy “Good Morning” routine.
