Outdoor Theatre: Signal Fires

Location: Serpentine Green, Hampton, Peterborough, PE7 8BE
Date: 24th October 2020

A live outdoor theatre event’s coming to Serpentine Green in Peterborough this month as part of a national festival but is celebrating our homegrown talent.
Eastern Angles Theatre Company and HighTide Theatre are joining forces to bring us Signal Fires: Peterborough, a LIVE outdoor theatre event, part of a national festival of fires!
The event is part of a unified effort from the UK’s leading touring theatre companies who are coming together this autumn to present a series of Signal Fires. The project is inspired by one of the original forms of theatre – storytelling around a fire.
All being well weather wise the event will take place on the green to the rear of Serpentine Green Shopping Centre (accessible from Eagle Way no through the shopping cnetre) but if the weather is too bad it will be relocated inside The Undercroft. They’ll be creating a brilliant tech fire which they promise will look impressive but won’t keep you warm… so take your chairs and blankets.
Eastern Angles will present the culmination of their Young Writers Group which was cut short due to the lockdown in March. It will be a celebration of the brilliant homegrown talent of Peterborough with each writer presenting a 10-minute extract from their script.
HighTide will present two pieces from their lockdown monologue series: Gran by Ben Weatherill and Bedlam Before The Burnout by Aisha Zia. Gran is a touching portrait of life during the COVID-19 pandemic and the small moments of joy that can be found and will be performed by Sabrina Sandhu (Everyone’s Talking About Jamie, West End). Bedlam Before The Burnout explores the chaos of modern urban life and the feeling of apocalypse which loomed even before the global pandemic.
Chimes Coffee Shop in CSK Church will be open before each performance so you can grab a hot drink, soup or choose from a selection of cakes.
Covid safety measures will be in place for both audience and staff and capacity’s limited to 30 per performance.
Performances are at 3pm and 6.30pm – it’s outdoors so wrap up!
Tickets start at £5 and can be booked in family groups of up to 6 people, booking via the Eastern Angles Box Office on 01473 211498 or www.easternangles.co.uk

Silver Screen Film: Hope Gap

Location: The Key Theatre, Embankment, Peterborough, PE1 1EF
Date: 28th October 2020

Annette Bening and Bill Nighy co-star as a longtime couple on the verge of divorce in Hope Gap, a drama that’s tastefully restrained to a fault in a particularly British manner.
Veteran screenwriter William Nicholson, a two-time Oscar nominee, based the film on his Tony-nominated play The Retreat from Moscow. The title was inspired by Napoleon’s invasion of – and messy withdrawal from – the Russian city, a subject that fascinates Nighy’s character and serves as an obvious metaphor for the destruction of his own marriage.
Screening at 11am, £4 per person.

Wilko Johnson

Location: The Cresset, PE3 8DX
Date: 6th February 2021

Following a remarkable recovery from a diagnosis of terminal cancer, Wilko Johnson – the original Dr Feelgood guitarist , Game of Thrones actor and all round national treasure – has enjoyed a rousing return to the live arena, including a No. 1 album with Roger Daltrey (Going Back Home), a sold out show at The Royal Albert Hall to mark his 70th birthday and, most recently, the release of Blow Your Mind, his first album of new material in decades.

Wilko is famed for his blistering chop-chord strumming action (the ‘stab’, as he describes it), a technique inspired by his admiration of the late Pirates guitarist Mick Green. With this electrifying sound, his trademark black-suited, scowling look and his characteristic strut, Wilko became one of the guitar heroes of the 1970s and beyond, not to mention one of rock ’n’ roll’s most extraordinary characters.

He, alongside his original Feelgood bandmates, is also widely acknowledged as a forefather of punk on both sides of the Atlantic, with fans ranging from Joe Strummer to Blondie.

Following a stint with Ian Dury & The Blockheads in the 1980s, he formed the Wilko Johnson Band, with Blockheads bassist Norman Watt-Roy. Also featuring former Blockhead Dylan Howe on drums, the trio is known as one of the most exciting RnB bands in the world today.

Special guest is ‘Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure’ John Otway.

Location: The Cresset, PE3 8DX
Date: 8th April 2021

Named by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

Amongst his many record-breaking achievements, he was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

In Living Dangerously, Sir Ranulph offers a personal journey through his life, from his early years to the present day. Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously spans Sir Ranulph’s childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life and early expeditions, right through the Transglobe Expedition to his current Global Reach Challenge – his goal to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ many endeavours have pushed his endurance levels to the very limits, inspiring generations and making him a pioneer of exploration with an unparalleled story to tell.
