The Daily Bread

August de Ville is a master baker and his tiny village bakery is the talk of the town, as the WI ladies flock for miles to sample his sumptuous sponge and beautiful buns.

‘Couldn’t meet a nicer feller’, the village proclaim. But does the cheery facade hide a dark secret? That he shares the same name as the hated newspaper magnate- responsible for hiding the truth of the Bottledale bank crash- is, August claims, just a sad coincidence.

The Thankful Village

Set against the backdrop of World War 1, the quiet village backwater of Bottledale is changed forever by the advent of the Great War in Europe.
But the roll of honour stone in the village square remains empty and un-etched as the years pass, and folk start to wonder.

This is a story of hope, humour and humanity, about the men who went away, and the women left behind, and the eccentric twists and turns of daily life that led to their re-uniting,for better or for worse, in the winter of 1918.

The Thankful Villages were those which lost no men in the Great War because all those who left to serve came home again, and there were some 52 settlements in England and Wales which could claim this honor at the end of the conflict.

All Tickets: £8

Nelson: The Sailors Story

 Inspirational hero - flawed maverick. Tactical genius. Rebel. 
Amidst the shot, smoke and din of battle, a surgeon, a midshipman, a gunner and a powder monkey aboard HMS Victory strive to destroy the Combined Fleet of France and Spain. Their fate - and that of their country - lies in the hands of one man - Horatio Nelson. 
For two hundred years, Vice Admiral, the Right Honourable, the Viscount Nelson KB has stood patiently on his column in Trafalgar Square, watching the world and its many changes, good - and bad. But what happened to the "tars" who served with him? Through their eyes we find out what it was really like at Trafalgar; and in Nelson's own words, the hero - and the rebel, then - and now. 
Below the column in Trafalgar Square, a homeless Falklands veteran shivers in the cold...
