This years 2022 Festival Programme currently being finalised with details to be announced shortly.
Festival Programme 2021
Friday 1st October 7.30pm Woolpit Village Hall Tickets £12
David Cordon presents two plays by Alan Bennett from the Talking Heads series,
with Paquita Savill and Caroline Brooks.
“Her Big Chance” featuring a struggling actress who gets what she sees as a breakthrough role, but is blind to its sinister undertones;
“A Woman of No Importance” starring persistently cheerful but terribly lonely Peggy – a richly comic and desperately moving creation.
If you saw his 2019 production you’ll know that David will guarantee you a treat, great acting and thoughtful direction.
Saturday 2nd October, 2pm to 5pm Woolpit Village Hall
Tickets £3 Under 16s Free
Come and Sing: The Beatles.
Come along to The Village Hall and Tom Appleton, our local Gareth Malone, accompanied by professional musicians, will teach you 5 or 6 Beatles songs which you will get to perform later that day. This is an event for everybody of any age – especially for anyone who likes to sing but has never felt able to outside their own bathroom!
Saturday 2nd October at 7.30pm : Woolpit Village Hall – Tickets £15.
Our Saturday evening headline show with Richard returning to Woolpit – last here with a memorable 2010 Festival sell out concert. His new show will feature songs, stories, and jokes with lots of new lockdown related material and some of his old favourites with the kind of audience participation he has made his own.
A BAFTA Nominated performer and recipient of The Gold Award from the British Academy of Songwriters, not to be missed!
