An adaption of Patrick Ness’ ‘A Monster Calls’, one of the great young adult fiction novels of our time, a devastating articulation of the fury that comes with grief.

Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved away. But now his mum is sick and not getting any better. His grandmother won't stop interfering and the kids at school won't look him in the eye. Then, one night, Conor is woken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. It's come to tell Conor tales from when it walked before. And when it's finished, Conor must tell his own story and face his deepest fears.

The production runs from November 14th to 16th at 7.30pm

Director Ralph Fiennes captures the raw physicality and brilliance of the ballet world’s finest, Rudolf Nureyev, whose escape to the West stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet's most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas led him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB.

Listen you lot, Christmas can take a holiday this year cos Flashheart’s in town. And I know what you’re thinking, can Warminster cope with this much excitement? Woof woof! My old mate Eddie has invited me and all you less attractive mortals to join him as he throws away his freedom. Then we can all sit back, codpiece in hand, and watch as he outmanoeuvres the Bishop, discovers an interesting wine from the new world and escapes from the dungeon of certain death. 

If you book early enough (by 27th September), then you may be lucky enough to be close enough to smell my pheromones. And don’t worry ladies, there will be plenty left for you too. 

Signed, Flash

P.S. Isn’t this the multi-nominated production team. I hear they’re very good...yes, Lord Flashheart...Ouch...Yes, of course if you were directing it it would’ve won all the awards.

1 hour 50 minutes          Cert. 12A               (UK - 2019)   
A feel good film about a London music executive (Daniel Mays) who heads to Cornwall on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served before the film.

Please note; A limited number of guest tickets for films are available in advance online or from the box office. If the advance tickets sell out, more tickets may be available on the door on the day.

The deeply touching Oscar nominated Capernaum (Chaos) tells the story of Zain (Zain al-Rafeea), a Lebanese boy as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-year-old ‘adult’. Fleeing his negligent parents, he survives through his wits on the streets, where he meets Ethiopian migrant worker Rahil, who provides him with shelter and food in return for taking care of her baby son. After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain finally seeks justice and sues his parents for giving him life.

Loosely based on a true story, Joan Stanley (Judi Dench) is a widow living out a quiet retirement in the suburbs when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest. The charge: providing classified scientific information - including details on the building of the atomic bomb - to the Soviet government for decades. As the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs.

Adults £12

The Vagina Monologues has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries.  The play ran for over 10 years in the UK, France and Mexico.

A staggering number of the world’s most famous and talented women, including Maureen Lipman, Jerry Hall, Kate Winslett and Whoopi Goldberg, have  taken part in the show in New York, Los Angeles and London.

This hilariously witty, and often moving, collection of tales gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.

“Ensler breaks taboos by talking, talking and talking some more – stripping fear and shame from what she celebrates here.  It makes for quite a party…..funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry. The Vagina Monologues confronts words to demystify and disarm them. In so doing, Ensler disarms the audience too” – Associated Press

“Probably the most important piece of political theatre this decade” – New York Times
