Team Viking

James Rowland: Team Viking

Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full Viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious, heart-lifting and outlandish story of how James actually gave his mate the send-off he wanted. Featuring live music, side-splitting anecdotes and even a real Viking helmet, James Rowland’s Team Viking is a comic ode to death and friendship. Age Suitability 14+
This performance is part of the Inn Crowd Project

Farnham Maltings Touring: Brilliance

1963, Winter. Everyone is gathering in the village hall. Daisy places her hand on the switch, presses it down, and life is never the same again.

Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every crevice and corner of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allows us to gather and sing long into the night.

Brilliance is a 90-minute theatrical event, made especially for village halls, that celebrates progress and change in a bright new world.
