Theatre: Much Ado about Falstaff – Friday 15th January 2021, 1pm – Audience tickets only. Tickets £14.
In this new play by Simon Downing we find Falstaff, in his bedroom in the Boars Head being nursed by Mistress Quickly. The creditors arrive demanding payment. Will Falstaff resort to marrying Mistress Quickly in order to pay off his debts? Will he turn teetotal? Will he mellow in his old age? Find out the answers to all these important questions that Shakespeare never bothered to answer and join Falstaff for an evening of jollity, frivolity, a definite lack of coequality and more Shakespearean insults than ever previously heard on a theatrical stage!

Music: Bob Drury’s ‘Neil Diamond Unplugged’ – A Covid Secure LiveShow- Thursday 28th, Friday 29th, Saturday 30th January 2021, 7:30pm – Audience tickets only. Tickets £19.50.
In a show conceived and configured with the current restrictions in mind, Bob Drury presents an acoustic evening of Neil Diamond’s music. Many of Neil Diamond’s classic hits were created with just voice and guitar and the songs return to this format with ease. For Bob, who has been performing Neil Diamond’s songs for the past 15 years, it is also an opportunity to explore some of the lesser known gems and demonstrate the sheer quality of this Brooklyn boy’s wonderfully poetic lyrics and evocative guitar accompaniments.
“Bob, it was great hearing you last night and I was totally blown away by your level of musicianship on guitar” – Mark LeVang, keyboard player with Neil Diamond’s band

Tickets available for both online stream and in person audiences available only at
