Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace. It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

Otway & Barrett – Film Stars Live!

Share Share this!

Otway & Barrett – Film Stars Live!

The partnership of John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett was never going to be smooth. Willy was a musical prodigy by the time Otway gave his first performance - drinking a bottle of ink to an audience of fellow school-children who did not believe anyone would go to such ridiculous extremes just to get attention. In the past few years Otway and Barrett have reunited for a few short tours, if only to prove that nothing much has changed. In 2013 Otway intensively toured the country screening his rockumentary film (premiered at The Odeon, Leicester Square and shown at Cannes - and The Plough Arts Centre!) in which Willy is prominently featured. However, at the time of writing Willy has refused to watch the film. This show is a wonderful eclectic mix of bizarre humour, superb visual effects, fine guitar playing and the best use of a Theremin anywhere.

The Blues Band

At RHS Garden Rosemoor

Paul Jones ~ Dave Kelly ~ Rob Townsend ~ Gary Fletcher ~ Tom McGuinness

If music matures like fine wine, 1979 was a vintage year, the year The Blues Band formed.  Whilst staying committed to their authentic blues roots, their ability and craftsmanship enabled them to explore new directions and expand their creative repertoire. What makes The Blues Band stand out from their often over-amplified peers is their historical understanding of every diverse category of the blues.

(Enhance your evening with either a delicious pre-performance 2 course dinner in the Garden Kitchen Restaurant or enjoy the garden while eating a pre-prepared picnic trugs, booking essential for both. Please contact Rosemoor for full details on 01805 626821. Cash bar on the terrace from 6.30pm.)

A Photographic Odyssey: Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition Captured on Camera

An illustrated talk by Mark Cottle

On Ernest Shackleton’s third Antarctic expedition in 1914, his ship, the Endurance, became trapped in the pack ice. Shackleton's men rowed to the remote Elephant Island and from there Shackleton sailed for help to South Georgia over 800 miles away. This remains one of the most remarkable open boat journeys ever made. Frank Hurley, an Australian, was the expedition’s photographer and a pioneer in the emerging world of photo-journalism. Mark Cottle has always been fascinated by the sea and its stories and this lecture captures Hurley’s achievements as a photographer of the Antarctic.

Comedy Night with

Kernow King

Kernow King's newest show, "Splann!" (splendid in Cornish) was meant to look at all the wonderful things going on in Cornwall. But things changed, and before long, it ended up taking a bit of a wry look at some of the things that aren't so great about Cornwall. Be it customer advisors, shops shutting, being taught how to drive by your mum, having your testicles examined by your local doctor and so much more, the show is the perfect antidote to his original show, "Wonders of the Cornish Universe".

Optional fancy dress: theme ‘Cornish’. Prize for best outfit.


All tickets £13
