MON 15 - SUN 22 MAY 2017
A Judgement In Stone, Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells, Mon 15 – Sat 20 May
Ooooh, I love a Ruth Rendell mystery… So when I spotted the Assembly Hall Theatre was getting this brilliant stage adaptation of thriller A Judgement in Stone, I was excited, having read some pretty good reviews of this classic whodunit and seen the impressive cast list… See you there with my bumper pack of Maltesers.
Alison Weir Book Launch, Hever Castle, 18 May
The bestselling author launches her new book, Anne Boleyn: a King’s Obsession. It’s the second in her six-book series about each of King Henry VIII’s wives, told from their point of view.
Ginger Is The New Black, Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone, Fri 19 May
Following his sell out run at Edinburgh Fringe last year, join James Wilson-Taylor for a musical history of the redhead as he attempts to end the bullying and rebrand gingers for good. Can he make Ed Sheeran less boring ? (Hey leave off our Teddy)… Can he turn Ron Weasley into a sex symbol? And why do people think he’s a vampire? James, a semi-finalist in the Musical Comedy Awards 2016, is definitely a comedian on the rise – watch this space (and watch this show)!
Martin Kemp, Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone, Fri 19 May
You’re indestructible, Always believe in, because you are, Gold! Ah, sorry, just couldn’t help myself. As if we need an introduction, but anyway, here’s Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp, 80s musical legend who has spent recent years appearing on our screens as the villainous Steve Owen in Eastenders and sometimes TV presenter. In this up close night Martin will be discussing his life in the public eye and answering audience questions. True.
Chelsea Fringe, Leeds Castle, 20 May – 4 June
Kicking off at the end of this week is the chance to see the Leeds Castle Gardens in miniature with an alternative twist during the Chelsea Fringe, the fringe to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The Chelsea Fringe features a wonderful mixture of public spectacles, horticultural happenings and community celebrations, covering everything that could be conceivably linked with gardens, plants, landscape and environment. This year, the gardeners of Leeds Castle are turning their world ‘inside out’ and reinventing the garden shed in the Castle’s Barbican with a miniature recreation of the Leeds Castle Gardens on the inside, and the tools of their trade on the outside. Make sense? Oh, just go and see it for yourself!
