The Eduardo Niebla Duo

14th May

If you don’t know the stunning guitar playing of Eduardo Niebla, you’re in for a treat. If you are already amongst his admirers around the world, you know you have something quite extraordinary in store. The virtuoso Spanish guitarist makes music that transcends genres and crosses barriers, fusing flamenco gypsy jazz with a myriad of classical and Indian colours that are quite breathtaking. And moreover it is heart-rending lyricism that brings a truly poetic quality to Eduardo’s performances and a dynamic energy that makes each concert unbelievably invigorating.

Badapple Theatre Company Presents:
The Last Station Keeper

29th September

The station house at Honeypot Holt is under attack, and not just from the resident bees.

As the summer days drone on, the threat of closure creeps nearer and nearer, as the new high speed link threatens the archaic bumbling ways of the station master and the railway cottage that has stood at the village centre as long as anyone can remember.

A heartfelt and hilarious look at the perils of modern life when the 21st Century 'need for speed' hits the old ways head on....
