The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A production by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society.

Every drama group knows the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! Scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and sound effects mistimed, as the ladies entertain with the cunning whodunit, ‘Murder At Checkmate Manor.’

And just in case the audience should get bored there's a Film Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the ‘murderer’, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.

Performances from Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 July and Thursday 3 to Saturday 5 July.

Tickets from £7.50 to £13.50 (includes £1 restoration levy).

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.
