Imagine also that during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. Imagine further that the only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girlfriend but that his real girlfriend is to be kept ignorant of the fact! By the time the bride’s parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act the chaos reaches nuclear proportions. This hilarious play moves at the speed of light with a riot a minute that will leave you aching with laughter.

01/10/2017 THAMES VALLEY FARMERS' MARKET (NEWBURY)

Newbury Farmers' Market runs twice a month on the first and third Sunday. Originally set up by the Council to give local farmers and producers an opportunity to sell their produce direct to the public, most will have been grown or processed within 30 miles of West Berkshire. The Farmers' Market supports the local economy, providing healthy fresh food and reducing food miles - the distance food has travelled from where it is produced. In addition, the market provides an opportunity to find out more about issues such as Genetically Modified foods, land management and organic farming.
Market Place, Newbury RG14 5BD

02/10/2017 to 03/10/2017 THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE
 ANVIL ARTS, BASINGSTOKE

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong…or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde.
