Hamlet; The Greatest Theatre Tour on Earth
Saturday 1 October at 7:45pm
The Shakespeare's Globe "HAMLET" Company travelled over 300,000 kilometres and played 293 performances in 197 countries over a two year period. Surely the Greatest Theatre Tour on Earth.
They performed at the United Nations, and to the good and the great all over the world including President Obama. Venues ranged from prestigious theatres to makeshift spaces in small Pacific Islands, throughout Africa,the Middle East and beyond.
Acclaimed RSC and National Theatre actor Keith Bartlett, one of the actors who played Polonius and Claudius, will give an illustrated talk telling some of the incredible stories from the tour.
Come hear about the madness and the magic.
Keith was greatly impressed with the work of the charity 'Mary's Meals' when they performed in Malawi.This charity provides meals that feed over a million deprived children per day in local schools throughout Africa.
Tickets available now - All the ticket income will go to Mary's Meals to support their work.

Friday 7 to Saturday 15 October
Three ill-matched colleagues en route to a work conference in Australia find themselves dumped in the tropics with teenager Erin, whose parents died in the crash. But there’s no time to mourn Erin’s loss when there’s sunbathing to be done and other passengers’ suitcases to loot for goodies. A mysterious plane crash, office politics and the fate of mankind are just some of the themes that the marooned bunch of misfits explore on the deserted island. As they wait to be rescued. A series of unfortunate events threaten their view of the world, and eventually, each other. But, while it begins as a comedy, it soon gives way to something much more sinister.
16 & 17 December
