Winner of the Writer’s Guild ‘Best Play for Children & Young People’

Ready? Steady? Go!

But who’s the fastest; who’s the best? Who will finally win the race? Younger, fitter, faster Hare – tearing around, unable to wait - or slow and steady Tortoise - taking the time to look at the stars?

Find out in this funny, tender, award-winning adaptation of the well-loved story as we journey through the seasons from bud-bursting spring to snow-falling winter in a tale of opposites, time and friendship, brimming with music, movement & colour.

An Evening with Johnny Kingdom at The Lights

Johnny Kingdom 201731st January 2018

Wednesday 7:30pm

Main auditorium

SELLING FAST

Johnny Kingdom is a one off. The one time gravedigger and wildlife enthusiast has enchanted huge audiences on the BBC and ITV with his unique approach to filming the animals and birds on Exmoor and across the wider country.

His passion for deer, badger, fox and birdlife and his brilliance at transmitting that passion to the viewer, often with a wobbly camera, is unmatched.

He has the rare field craft skills that help him find and then film birds and animals without them ever knowing he is there, and he has the gift of making the viewer feel that they are there with him, watching wildlife close up.

Over the years he’s found himself in all sorts of hilarious and sometimes dangerous situations and in conversation with the producer of his television programmes, David Parker, he will show clips from his programmes and talk about how he manages to film some memorable encounters with the cream of Britain’s wildlife.

India Electric Company at The Lights

India Electric Co1st February 2018 - 
 
Thursday 8:00pm

Seated arena event

Sometimes folk, sometimes not. India Electric Company use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and urban alienation to end up with something “quirky and glittery - a veritable musical magpie’s nest.” - Mary Ann Kennedy, BBC Radio 3.

 After releasing their debut debut album The Girl I Left Behind Me in  2015 they began extensively supporting and accompanying Midge Ure  throughout Europe. They performed live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, as well as playing the likes of Glastonbury Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival.  Currently they are embarking on their first tours of Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Ireland to coincide with the release of their latest recordings.

“Fresh and gobsmacking!” - BBC 6 Music

**** “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.”  - The Telegraph

**** “Their reeling, spinning sound corroborates the content of their songs which appear to be describing a life alive with motion. They are altogether a good thing, busy as rush hour but full of light.” - The Independent on Sunday

Stephen K Amos: Bread and Circuses at The Lights

Stephen K Amos2nd February 2018 - Friday 8:00pm

Main auditorium

SELLING FAST

Brexit. Trump. No more Mary Berry on the Great British Bake Off. Things are looking bleak, so wouldn’t it be better to just forget all about it? Comic maestro Stephen K Amos might not be able to provide bread to the hungry masses, but no one else is going to put on a better circus. Leave your problems behind for the evening in the company of the ‘effusively charming’ Amos and who knows? Maybe the world will seem just a little bit brighter.

After all, when Ancient Rome needed to distract itself from politics, a few solutions were suggested, but none hit the spot quite like the simple idea of giving the people cheap food and plentiful entertainment – ‘panem et circenses’ or ‘bread and circuses’. Our circuses might no longer involve gladiator fights to the death, but the same principle applies. Modern politics is a confusing mess, so no one can blame you for giving it a miss in favour of a night of laughs.

Aged 16+

‘Deliciously deft…we roared at ad-libbing that was first rate throughout…you’ll leave the show smiling’ The Times
