Boris Johnson: Churchill, Charles II or Coco the Clown?


Saturday, 29th February


7:00pm - 8:30pm


The Great Hall, Oundle

New Street, PE8 4GH


Tickets:

£16 general / £14 concession


Join us for an intriguing and entertaining talk with David Starkey a brilliant, engaging, and often controversial speaker and arguably one of the country’s most respected and colourful historians.


Who is our most unexpected prime minister? Is Boris Johnson Churchill reborn, as he seems to believe? Is he another Charles II, caught between the irreconcilable factions of Remainers and Brexiteers, and destined to betray both? Or is he just plain old Coco the Clown, as his previous buffoonish behaviour led almost everyone to think?


In this lecture David Starkey blends his knowledge of history and current politics into a sparkling, (and very strong), cocktail.


David Starkey is a Cambridge educated grammar schoolboy who became a respected LSE lecturer. He was a uniquely abrasive debater on Radio 4’s Moral Maze, a controversial contributor to Question Time, and the creator and presenter of many very popular historical TV series.


In 1984 David was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and in 1994 a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. He was also given an Honorary Fellowship at his Cambridge College, Fitzwilliam College. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2007 Birthday Honours for services to history.

Queen Victoria Hall, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ


The event is free to attend, doors & bar open at 7pm but please reserve your seat in advance. There are no physical tickets but your name will added to the reservation list.


Do have too much stuff in your life?  Do you hang onto items for those ‘just in case’ situations? Clutter is a modern ‘illness’ which cannot be cured until we accept how it is affecting our well-being, our home life and the environment. Professional declutter and home organiser, Conchetta Laquintana, will prove the truth in the saying ‘less is more’.                                  


This event is one of a series called the OWL talks - part of the Oundle Waste Less project organised by Transition Oundle - which aim to promote discussions about current thinking around the shift towards lower carbon and more 'eco' lifestyles. Topics covered include carbon offsetting, sustainable fashion, Incredible Edible Todmorden, Closing The Loop (the circular economy) with more events in the pipeline for 2020.

EASTER PARADE (U)


Stahl Theatre, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ


special £5 adult ticket price


Duration: 1h 43 mins


Guaranteed to put everyone into the perfect mood for Easter, this Irvin Berlin musical is an absolute classic from the golden age of Hollywood.  Starring Fred Astaire as a dancer who, dumped by his partner, vows to turn the next girl he sees into an elegant star.  Judy Garland plays the unfortunate waitress his eye alights upon and thus begins the painful task of turning her into a showbiz sensation. Slowly however Don (Astaire) comes to realise that he is wrong to try to create an exact copy of his old partner Nadine, and instead allows Garland’s musical talent and their natural stage chemistry to lead them to their rightful place, headlining the prestigious “Zeigfeld Follies” and staking their place in the world famous “Easter Parade” along New York’s Fifth Avenue.


“The standout musical numbers include the excellent Couple of Swells and Steppin’ out with my Baby.  Wonderful”  Empire Magazine

Tickets: £13/£11




Written off as a rake and reviled as a rogue, join George Wickham on the eve of his sixtieth birthday to discover his version of some very famous literary events. From childhood games at Pemberley to a run-in with Lord Byron via marriage, Lydia, and just a little bit of matchmaking for Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, Mr Wickham is ready to set the record straight. This brand-new production by Catherine Curzon sees Adrian Lukis return to his celebrated role as George Wickham, Jane Austen’s most quintessential trouble-maker.


Adrian trained at Hull University and Drama Studio, London. He has appeared in numerous productions, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and most recently in The Price at London’s Wyndhams Theatre, for which he was nominated for an Olivier award. He was also nominated for best actor by the Off West End awards for his role in ‘I’m gonna pray for you so hard’. Among many television and film appearances, he has recently appeared in Collateral, Judy, Toast of London, Us and will shortly be seen in Spy City, by William Boyd. He still perhaps best known for his long-standing roles in Peak Practice and as Wickham in Pride and Prejudice.

FIVE SEASONS (U)        


Fletton House, Oundle

Glapthorn Road, PE8 4JA


Director: Thomas Piper                                        1h 15m


A modern garden designer – Piet Oudolf -  changing the look and feel of gardens and giving them a new and sensory idiom. ‘Five Seasons’ immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.


As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts centre in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.


Through poetic cinematography and unique access, ‘Five Seasons’ will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.


“Piper's film is unrushed and chock-full of spark and life, much like the gardens Piper spotlights” Village Voice
