Meet Tommy Atkins @ The Athaeum Theatre
Jul 17 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ takes the audience not just through Tommy’s war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passhendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.
From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.

This is his story.

‘Compelling, moving, insightful and believable….beautifully written and performed’

A Swinging Summer’s Evening @ Tuckwell Amphitheatre
Aug 15 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Peter Gill returns to the Tuckwell Amphitheatre with members of his popular band ‘The Good Time Charlies’ for his ever popular Swinging Summer Evening. As to be expected boogie woogie, swing, blues and a touch of rock n roll will play a strong part as they perform an eclectic mix of material such as ‘Mr Bojangles’, ‘Down The Road Apiece’, ‘Bill Bailey’, ‘Rockin My Life Away’, ‘Yes Sir That’s My Baby’ and ‘Boogie Woogie Country Girl’. This will be an evening of sublime entertainment with music interlaced with Peter’s friendly and witty banter. In every previous year this has been an early sell out concert, so get your tickets early!

Please note this is an Open-air event in the Tuckwell Amphitheatre (Sat Nav: GL51 6HE). For a map click here. Please bring low-backed seating and prepare for all weathers. In the event of unsafe weather this event will transfer into the Bacon Theatre.
