NO DOGS
From:19-09-2022
To:31-10-2022
+ More Info +

NO DOGS is a combined audio drama and animations project funded by Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Winston visits Dermot’s grave each year on his old friend’s birthday. Tending the plot, he reminisces, and Winston is sure Dermot responds, the vividity of their shared memories seemingly overcoming death itself. Together, they revisit the colour and vivacity of their hopeful start in post-war England, and the bringing together of their families, one Irish, one Jamaican, in a single household. But when it comes to Dermot’s sudden departure from Winston’s life, the grave falls silent, and what took place so many years before remains a mystery. That is, until a familiar woman appears at the graveside for one final farewell.
Flintlock Theatre presents a sparkling audio play by Carmen Harris and Anna Glynn in a celebration of the communities who rebuilt Britain.

This event is FREE.

My Dear Old Things - An Evening With Henry Blofeld
From:08-10-2022
To:08-10-2022
+ More Info +

Being confined to the pavilion for the past couple of seasons has given Henry time to reconnect with his Norfolk roots and reflect on a truly extraordinary life. This reflection inspired the online film, At Home With Henry, and this new theatre show.

In My Dear Old Things, Blowers recalls his days as a young England hopeful, how an Eton bus knocked him off his stride - and his bike - recoiling from a career in the City to work as a cricket journalist before finding his way into the TMS box.

There are hilarious tales of Johnners, Arlott and other larger-than-life characters in the box and on tour with England. Henry also has plenty of hysterical stories from his post-retirement appearances on Would I Lie to You? and The Real Marigold Hotel.

Backed by film and rare personal pictures on our big screen, My Dear Old Things is an absolute treat for the cricket connoisseur and a wonderfully engaging evening for all.
