HISTORIES OF THE UNEXPECTED
With the BBC's Dr Sam Willis

Friday 28th September 2018, 7.30pm
 

Histories of the Unexpected LIVE! is a journey of historical discovery that tackles some of the greatest of historical themes - from the Tudors to the Second World War, from the Roman Empire to the Victorians - but via entirely unexpected subjects.

In this show that emotionally engages as well as informs and entertains, you will also find out how all of these subjects link together in unexpected, and rather magical, ways. Among many other things, you will find out how the history of the orange is all about Elizabethan spies and the gunpowder plot...how the history of windows is all about Nelson and the battle of Trafalgar...how the history of the beard is all about Brunel and the industrial revolution, and you will come to understand why the history of the scar is so important; how the history of monsters is so relevant today; why the history of chimneys is both exciting and upsetting.

You will never think about the past - or the present - in the same way ever again. Guaranteed.

MEET TOMMY ATKINS

Sunday 11th November 2018 - NEW TIME 4.30PM
 
TO MARK THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WW1

Add this to your day of commemoration

'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 Passchendaele 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' Stage Talk Magazine
