ArtsReach Touring Theatre Presents " A Barnes Supper" at Stalbridge Hall on Saturday 23rd February at 7.00pm. Alongside a feast of local fayre, The Ridgeway Singers and Band led by Tim Laycock and Phil Humphries will perform traditional songs collected across the County by the Hammond brothers, play dance tunes from the repertoire of Blackmore Vale fiddler Benjamin Rose, perform a special two part arrangement of Barnes' Linden Lea and recite some of the poems that keep alive the rich dialect of Dorset. Dialect poet William Barnes relished the country dances, folksongs and carols of Dorset, and often wrote about community celebrations, where music was a key part of the proceedings.
Tickets at £18 include a light Dorset supper served throughout the performance. Telephone booking: Williams Florist 01963 362355. For more information or to book online visit the Artsreach Website by clicking on the button below.
ArtsReach Touring Theatre presents "The Great Train Robbery" at Stalbridge Hall on Friday 8th March 2019 at 7.30pm. In the early hours of Thursday 8 August 1963, the heist of the century is under way. Signals are scrambled, phone lines cut and millions of pounds of cash stolen. Five days later the first clues are found, the gang is busted and the rest is history. But what about the ones that got away?
Using a raucous combination of physical theatre, live music and clowning, Scratchworks will unfold the untold tale of the four feisty forgotten females from the Great Train Robbery, as they leave behind their kitchen-sink lives and embark on a madcap adventure of mischief and mayhem.
Standard Ticket £9 Under 18s £6 Family ticket £25 available from Williams Florist in Station Road Stalbridge by phone on 01963 362355. For more information or to book online visit the ArtsReach website.
