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.

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.

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

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.

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’.

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

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750)


St John Passion


Monday 23 March


Venue: Oundle School Chapel


Performance: 7.45pm


Tickets: £8, free for all children under 18


From 1723 until his death, Bach was employed as Kantor at the Thomasschule in Leipzig. It was a prestigious but demanding post, requiring him to teach at the school, play the organ, train the choir and compose for the city’s two principal Lutheran churches, Thomaskirche and Nikolaikirche, as well as supervising and training the musicians at two others. Despite this heavy workload and frequent disputes with his employers, Bach composed some of his greatest music during this period. His choral compositions alone include such enduring masterpieces as the Mass in B Minor, Magnificat, Christmas Oratorio and the St John and St Matthew Passions. The St John Passion was first performed in Leipzig on Bach’s first Good Friday there, 7 April 1724, and was performed four times in the composer’s lifetime, each time with substantial alterations as Bach, as ever, strove for perfection.


For the first time in many years, the choral and instrumental forces of our entire community unite for what will surely be a magnificent performance. Conducted by Director of Music Quentin Thomas, and featuring an incredible Evangelist and our new Head of Singing, Nicholas Warden in the role of Jesus, the production offers our pupils the chance to be part of something incredible.

Why Women Read Fiction


Wednesday, 25th March at 7:30pm


The Oundle Suite, Fletton House

Glapthorn Road, Oundle, PE8 4JA


Tickets: £8/£6




In a fascinating new book, Helen Taylor, teacher, scholar of women’s writing, and literary festival director, examines just how precious fiction is to contemporary British women readers and offers candid insights into the challenges female writers often face, including publishers’ expectations and critics’ assumptions.


Ian McEwan once said, 'When women stop reading, the novel will be dead.' Female readers are key to the future of fiction and―as parents, teachers, and librarians―the glue for a literate society.

This book draws on over 500 interviews with and questionnaires from women readers and writers. It describes how, where, and when British women read fiction, and examines why stories and writers influence the way female readers understand and shape their own life stories.Taylor offers a cornucopia of witty and wise women's voices, of both readers themselves and also writers such as Hilary Mantel, Helen Dunmore, Katie Fforde, and Sarah Dunant.


Helen Taylor is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Exeter, Honorary Fellow of the British Association of American Studies, and Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow 2016-18. She is author of several books.


Please consider your own favourite book from childhood, or a book that means a great deal to you for whatever reason and come with a williness to share your thoughts.

Guardian journalist & BBC presenter Lucy Siegle has constantly pushed for a green, clean fashion culture. Following on from her book To Die For: is fashion wearing out the world?, documentary The True Cost and her #30wears rule, she now invites you to experience The Generous Wardrobe, a system of dressing and self expression based on earth logic, innovation, regenerative fibres and above all, generosity of spirit.


It is time, she says, to put fast fashion in the bin and rescue our fashion souls. Are you ready?  *** audience members are invited to wear (or bring) a piece of clothing they love and share the story of its longevity.

Hemington Rd, PE8 5QD


All tickets at £6.


An Englishman's home is his sand castle. William and Margaret Patterson and Stan and Bernice Billet have holidayed in their respective beach huts for years. They don't exactly rule the waves but they have turned the area around their beach huts into a cozy little fiefdom. Then along comes Doug, the ‘renter’ of the middle hut, and his two nubile ‘nieces’ who just want to have fun in the sun.  


The regulars try to teach Doug and the girls their unwritten ‘Laws of the Hutters’ but they don't seem to give a hoot for beach hut protocol. Meanwhile, ordinary holidaymakers encroach on the ‘Hutter’s’ beach space. Confrontation is inevitable…… will there ever be calm again?
