What's on in Kent & Sussex:


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.

Think of England

Anonymous Is A Woman: Think of England

The war office has employed Bette and Vera to travel the country hosting tea dances to boost morale amongst local communities and RAF fighters. But how will the locals react when they discover the women’s real purpose: to send the young men off to fight having experienced all of life’s pleasures? Join the ladies in your local hall for an unforgettable dance, a rousing song, and a real-life, war time scandal that threatens to destroy the women’s lives, shame the community and tear apart one already splintered RCAF crew. Can you save the night?

The Ministry Of Biscuits

The Foundry Group: The Ministry Of Biscuits

London, 1948. The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweet treats, such as the Gypsy Cream and the Bourbon. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down. Inspired by 40?s British Light Music, George Orwell’s 1984 and the Ealing Comedies this is a satirical musical fantasy, produced by renowned company the Foundry Group, with a section by international film-maker Ben Rivers, The Ministry of Biscuits promises clever original, hilarious, and infectiously tuneful entertainment for all ages.
