What’s On This November at Trinity in Tunbridge Wells?
Winter Wonders in November from Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells’ community arts hub.
For younger audiences, Lost the Plot Theatrical presents The Three Billy Goats Gruff on Sunday 3rd November. The Three Billy Goats Gruff never stop eating, and before long they have eaten everything they could get their hooves on! So hold on to your horns and join the three billy goats on their adventure as they bravely cross the rickety bridge to greener pastures. But who will they meet along the way as they TRIP TRAP over the bridge? The perfect treat for little ones and the big kids that bring them!
Trinity are delighted to be welcoming back Paines Plough on Thursday 7th November, the “de facto national theatre of new writing” (The Telegraph), with I Wanna Be Yours, a new play by Zia Ahmed. This is a tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you’ve got. Ella is from Yorkshire. Haseeb is from London. They order a pizza. House red for Ella. Hot chocolate for Haseeb. People and playlists. Christmas and Eid. Travelcards and Megabuses. London to Leeds. Love is more than just a game for two. Especially when there’s an elephant in the room.
For a novel take on a festive favourite, don’t miss A Christmas Carol on Thursday 28th November, as actor John O’Connor delightfully recreates Dickens’ famous performance of his best loved ghost story. Working with the script Dickens used, actor John O’Connor plays over 20 characters, skillfully drawing the audience into this Victorian ghost story. Audiences will be transported from Dickens’s own warm study to Scrooge’s freezing house, and the Cratchits’ welcoming dinner table. Enjoy this festive treat in the spirit of Christmas past, present and future.
As well as our Comedy Club Nights, Griff Rhys Jones makes a welcome return with his brand new full length stand-up show on Friday 8th November. It’s time to join one half of Smith & Jones, one quarter of Not the Nine O’Clock News, and one third of Three Men In a Boat as he presents an evening of hilarious true stories, riffs, observations, and details of his recent medical procedures. It’s all guaranteed to be packed with wicked insights into the pains of celebrity, the vicissitudes of parenthood, and encounters with the great, the good, and even the royal.
Also this month, look out for The Spirit of Jazz on Saturday 9th November, a charity concert for Band Without Boundaries, featuring three exceptional bands over one exciting evening. From London’s Southbank, Last Summer’s Tealights, featuring a unique line up of marimba, cello, saxophone bass, and percussion performing haunting, original music. Making their debut at Trinity, Kent based Band Without Boundaries – a fusion band of disabled and non-disabled musicians who compose and perform their own music. And finally, West Kent Big Band, known for the variety and sheer excitement of their performances.
