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.

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

"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.

Steerdeer Bicycle
Venue: The Station
A collection of faux hunting trophies created from bicycle components and found objects.

Growing up in rural Durham, from a young age, Richard had a keen interest in nature and wildlife in particular. As a born again cyclist, forever tinkering and updating his steed, he came to realize that the ergonomic shapes of certain bicycle components lent themselves to sculpture. The faux hunting trophy or bicycle taxidermy as it has been labelled has become a way of combining these two passions, whilst recycling and repurposing worn parts and found objects destined for landfill.

The ethos being that financially and environmentally art should not cost the Earth .
