Bec Applebee with “The Ugly Sisters”

The Ugly Sisters is a fun filled, family friendly, physical theatre show by Bec Applebee (CScape/Kneehigh) that takes a humorous satirical look at our modern social media driven obsession with “perfect” beauty.
Ella is a farmer’s daughter. She loves the farm and has never worried about whether her welly boots are in fashion or not. So it is a complete shock when her father introduces her to her two new step sisters. These girls are beautiful! they are primped, plumped and plucked. They know every beauty trick in the book and they know what’s what. Ella is definitely not it!

Tickets are: Adults £8.00, U18’s £6.00, Family £25.00 and youth club members free. Available from Deborah Childs Tel: 01935 891744

Village Hall Committee AGM
Corscombe Village Hall is the only community owned building in the village and is run by a management committee made up of representatives of user groups and elected members.

We are always looking for people who are interested in helping either on the committee of in doing practical jobs around the hall.

Our Annual General Meeting is a general meeting for everyone in the village to have their say on the management of the hall and what is planned for the future and also an ideal opportunity to find out more.

Hope to see you there

Arts Reach
CScape with “Taste”

This is a delicious romp of a show inspired by Grayson Perry’s exuberant tapestries “ The Vanity of Small Differences”, and relishing in our national obsessions with social class and the cultural extremities of food, fashion and style. Blending theatre, dance writing and music and brought to you by choreographers Sally Knight (CScape) and Neil Paris (Smith Dance/Fabulous Beast) with writing by Murray Lachlan Young (BBC Radio 4 & 6), Taste weaves its way through an abundance of matters and social tribes on an often hilarious journey that looks at identity, fashion, gardens, nick nacks, wine tasting, holidays, instant coffee vs the cafetiere, Thatcher, Kate Middleton, the welfare state and other important cultural markers! Expect a dance show with a difference that’s as refreshing as a nice cup of tea!

Tickets are: Adults £8.00, U18’s £6.00, Family £25.00 and youth club members free. Available from Deborah Childs Tel: 01935 891744
