An American in Paris Wednesday 7 June, 2.00pm
Dominion Theatre, London
 

An American in Paris tells the story of a young American soldier striving to make it as a painter in the aftermath of war. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer, the ‘City of Light’ becomes the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love.

Inspired by the Oscar winning MGM film, the show features many of George and Ira Gershwin's timelessly popular songs and music, including I Got Rhythm, I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise, The Man I Love, They Can’t Take That Away From Me and ’S Wonderful.

We have centre stalls tickets reduced from £69.50 to £45.00 for the matinee performance on Wednesday 7 June.

Banqueting House and Westminster Abbey Thursday 22 June, 11.45am
Westminster
 

We have arranged guided tours of Banqueting House in Whitehall and Westminster Abbey, followed by Evensong.

UPDATE: We have been contacted by an Old Eastbournian in the Household Cavalry, who has kindly offered this: 'If any of the group is interested, the Queen’s Life Guard will be changing at 11.00am over the road on Horse Guards Parade. I would be happy to talk you through the ceremony and show you around behind the scenes at Horse Guards before you go over the road to the Banqueting House. The guard change takes place between 10.55am and 11.30am. There are various pauses in proceedings when I can talk a bit about the regiments and our ceremonial commitment. Once the change has taken place, if there’s time, we can go into the stables and have a look at a mounted trooper and a military working horse up close. It is probably best to meet around 10.50am and they would be free to go over to the Banqueting House at about 11.40am.'

We meet at 11.45am for a guided tour of Banqueting House, the only surviving building of the old Palace of Whitehall. You will be able to see the dramatic ceiling by Rubens celebrating the reign of James I and then see the place where in 1649 Charles was executed.

There will be a break for lunch at 1.00pm, then we meet again at Westminster Abbey for a guided tour at 2.30pm. The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, with the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint still at its heart.

The tour will finish at about 4.30pm and we will stay at the Abbey for Evensong at 5.00pm.

The cost, including entrance fees and tour guides, is £35 per person, as long as we have at least 30 people in the group. If we have fewer than 30 the price will be higher, but we will keep you informed of any change. You will have to make your own way to and from London.

All places are now taken but please let us know if you would like to be put on a reserve list for a place should anybody drop out.

Derek Granger on Laurence Olivier Sunday 25 June, 5.00pm
Birley Centre
 

Derek Granger is best known as the producer and co-writer of the iconic multi-award winning 1981 television drama Brideshead Revisited, but he was also a producer of Coronation Streetin its early days, as well as being a journalist and scriptwriter. An Old Eastbournian, he was in Powell House from 1935 to 1939.

Derek’s lifetime experience in the world of film and television, and the friendships he has forged over some nine decades give him a unique insight into this world. One such enduring friendship was with Laurence Olivier and his wife Joan Plowright.

He worked closely with Olivier, first as literary consultant at the Old Vic in the early days of the newly formed National Theatre, and latterly at Granada TV where he co-produced with Olivier a series of television adaptations of famous British plays. Derek was given complete access to Olivier's papers to write the definitive life of the greatest actor of the English-speaking world in the 20th century.

There will be a reception after the talk in the foyer of the Birley Centre.

Tickets cost £5 and are available from the College Box Office.
