Association of Animal Artists
Venue: The Station
Collective works by members of the 'AAA'

A fantastically diverse exhibition of Animal Art embracing a broad spectrum of style and technique and capturing the spirit of nature.

Our animal kingdom needs to be appreciated in all its forms to encourage us to value our natural world. Through detailed studies, and an 'emotional response' to the natural world, the Association of Animal Artists have a common aim; to use their passion for art and nature to support animals through close partnership with animal welfare groups.

Displaying work from professional artists, semi professional and amateur artists from all genres, depicting domestic through to exotic animals, the breadth of styles and subjects means there truly is something for everyone.

Past visitors to our exhibitions have left with some wonderful comments:-
“Truly an exhibition not to be missed by any animal lover!”
“A fantastic exhibition. The standard of work is second to none”

With all artwork for sale, we are excited to be able to support our chosen charity for 2017, The Vincent Wildlife Trust.

Best Foot Forward
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A hilarious hike through the history of hostelling with the award-winning Mikron Theatre Company.

Something’s afoot at Pearling Manor and it isn’t just the walkers. The beautiful hostel, rich in YHA history, is lovely but falling apart. External forces are out to grab and turn it into a golf club.

Cue Connie, first ever warden, with a heart as big as her rucksack. She takes us on a journey through the YHA’s past in the hope of securing its future.

Through thickets and thin we’ve managed to keep

Our promise of somewhere cheap to sleep

If that’s threatened we must defend it

Looking to the past in order to transcend it


With harmonies, hills and humour, join Mikron on a hike through the history of hostelling.

Tickets from £8 to £21 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking system.

Jeremy Hardy
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Popular stand-up comedian Jeremy Hardy takes the comedy spotlight.

Jeremy Hardy is in his fourth decade as a stand-up. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 33 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 33 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well-known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

His television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).


“In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material.”

Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal

When young conscripts Cookey (Green Howards) and Bert (East Yorkshire Regiment) arrive in Richmond for training, little do they know they’re about to embark on one of the most important military operations of World War Two: The D-Day Landings.

Bringing to life the verbatim first- hand accounts of the five remaining York Normandy veterans, this powerfully evocative drama takes you right to the centre of the action. It follows events from D-Day to VE Day through the eyes of five ordinary lads, and documents the lifelong impact of conflict on WW2 survivors today.

Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A lively adaptation of Oscar Wilde's raucous social comedy.

When a mysterious new beauty enters high society, the in-crowd are sent scattering outwards, bent utterly backwards and flattened low to find out exactly who they are dealing with.

Oscar Wilde’s raucous social comedy pulls apart the intricacies of etiquette and flips expectation rump-over-head in this scathingly funny satire.

As young Lady Windermere varnishes up all cracks in the veneer, how is it she fails to notice that the place is positively crawling with woodworm? Themes of stereotype, superficiality and personal sacrifice are all explored in this high-speed adaptation of this classic work.

In this touring production, Pamela Schermann directs the Theatrical Niche team for the first time, bringing the expertise of her international theatre company Time Zone Theatre and following on from rave reviews for previous Wilde productions 'Provocative and Enthralling' (Three Weeks); 'Directed wonderfully' (Curtain Up Show); ' Elegant, classy, emotive and emotional' (Fringe Review).

Suitable for ages 12+

Tickets from £11 to £16 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

The Game's a Foot, Try the Fish
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
"A gloriously silly and subversive murder mystery that delights its audience." The Stage.


Weaving Wodehousian witticisms, farce and highly quotable one-liners into a pair of intriguing 1930s whodunits, award-winning writer-performer Tom Taylor’s rakish aristocrat and first-time detective, Charlie Montague, must prevent a murder. The chap dies.

Not put off in the slightest, Charlie attends the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with a double-threat: murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.

Packed with non-stop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters – all played by Taylor – this show was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival where it collected a host of four- and five-star reviews.

Tickets from £11 to £16 (includes £1 restoration levy)are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

The Six Wives of Henry VIII
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A hilarious two-man historical drama which was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic.

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn't really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded, two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Bristol Old Vic) and Stu (Kneehigh) are at their wits end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything...

But can two of the South West’s favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other?

The Six Wives of Henry VIII was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic, and with live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you'll never forget.

“This is premier league stuff... a hugely enjoyable evening of daft comedy.” Venue

“Both actors perform with bounds of enthusiasm, wit and technical skill; their versatility and range is outstanding.” Bristol Evening Post

Tickets from £8 to £16 (includes restoration levy) are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

An Evening with Martin Kemp
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
The renowned actor, musician and TV presenter will be discussing his life in the public eye and answering audience questions.

Martin Kemp is best-known as the bass player in the multi-million-record-selling band Spandau Ballet and for his portrayal as Steve Owen from the BBC soap opera East Enders.

Spandau Ballet enjoyed a great deal of success, with four of their albums reaching the UK album chart top ten. True gave the band their first UK number one album and single with the album's title track. Kemp also performed with the band on the popular 1984 famine relief project song Do They Know It's Christmas? written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure.

Martin Kemp has also had a full and varied acting career. He appeared with his brother Gary (also a member of Spandau Ballet) in the 1990’s film The Krays, as well as in several television dramas including The Brides in the Bath and Can’t Buy Me Love. His role in BBC’s top soap drama East Enders made him one of the most well-known faces in television and his character was involved in some of the soap’s highest rated story lines. His many awards and accolades include twice-winner of the British Soap Award’s Sexiest Male!

Kemp appeared on a celebrity special of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire in January 2008 with his brother Gary, to raise awareness of and funds for the Encephalitis Society of which he is patron. He was also a finalist in the 2012 Celebrity Big Brother and earlier this year joined the judging panel of Gary Barlow’s talent show Let it Shine.

Thursday, 9th November 2017 - Saturday, 11th November 2017
The Clink
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A riotously funny satirical farce in the tradition of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and Shakespeare in Love.

Elizabeth I is tottering at death's door. Conspirators are everywhere. Alternative comedian Lucius Bodkin becomes unwittingly involved in the political skullduggery and jiggery-pokery surrounding the ailing queen. He thinks he'll hit the big time - but he's reckoned without the Tudor backstabbers and the City wide boys.

The Clink could pass itself off as a long-lost Elizabethan comedy. In fact it is a brilliant political satire offering many sharp parallels with our own times, when art must be sponsored, but to be sponsored it must be 'safe'.

A production from Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society.

Tickets from £7.50 to £13.50 (includes £1 restoration levy) are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

One Image. A Thousand Words.
Venue: The Station
A collection of images by local amateur photographer Bryn Turner exploring the well-known phrase, 'A picture is worth a thousand words'.

"No picture means the same thing to any two people. Photography isn’t always about getting the perfect shot, it is often about what that image meant to the person who took it. Many of the images within this collection will mean something different to me than they will to you. That’s the aim of this collection - to help you consider just how much meaning can be taken from an image." - Bryn Turner.
