College Theatre
 

Eastbourne College presents A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by ghosts offering him the chance of a better future who teach him it is never too late to change.

A Christmas Carol is a transformational story that encourages each of us to reflect on our own lives and to take a look at where we are, while providing us with an opportunity to become more like Dickens’ inspirational characters: Ebenezer Scrooge, who completely changes his outlook on life; Bob Cratchit, who sacrifices all that he can for his family; or Tiny Tim, who displays wisdom beyond his years.

Tickets £9
Running time 120 minutes (including interval)

Lady Windermere's Fan is the latest play in the Oscar Wilde Season at London's Vaudeville Theatre.

Award-winning director Kathy Burke has brought together a talented comedic cast. Samantha Spiro, playing Mrs Erlynne, won an Olivier Award for her performance in Merrily We Roll Along at the Donmar Warehouse. Kevin Bishop will play Lord Darlington, having recently starred in one-man show Fully Committed at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Once In A Lifetime at the Young Vic. Comedian, screenwriter and actor Jennifer Saunders guest stars as the Duchess of Berwick, marking her return to the West End stage for the first time in over twenty years.

We have a number of seats reserved in the stalls at £35 each, reduced from £55. Please let us know by Wednesday 20 December if you would like to go.

Martin Taylor takes a scientific approach to hypnotism, telling his subjects that there is no sleep, no trance, no zombie-state.

Yet the show still has all the laughs, the wonder, the excitement of any hypnotist show you’ll see anywhere else.

Entry to the show is free. There is no need to book; just turn up, but please let John Thornley know if you intend coming along just in case there is a change of time or venue.

Post-war Germany with Angela Findlay Friday 5 October, 6pm
College Theatre


A Circus event for all Upper Sixth pupils. Eastbournian Society members are welcome to attend.

After the end of the Second World War a collective silence descended over Germany and the horrors of the past were suppressed. Germany’s very specific situation rendered all traditional concepts of monuments and memorials irrelevant and inappropriate but in the 1980s certain artists resolved to create art forms that would confront Germans with their Nazi pasts and respond to questions of apology and atonement.

Angela Findlay’s Anglo-German roots, artistic background and years of research into the historical context in which her German grandfather operated as a decorated General in the Wehrmacht, puts her in an ideal position to give insights into Germany’s on-going efforts to find artistic forms for the remembrance of the victims of one of history’s darkest periods.

Entry to the talk is free. There is no need to book; just turn up, but please let John Thornley know if you intend coming along just in case there is a change of time or venue.

Entry to the talk is free. There is no need to book; just turn up, but it would be useful if you could let John Thornley know if you intend coming along just in case there is a change of time or venue.
