The Witches of Eastwick
The story is based around three
best friends Alexandra Spofford, Jane Smart and Sukie Rougemont who are desperately frustrated and bored by their mundane lives in the little town of Eastwick. They all have one shared desire – to find the ‘perfect man’ who comes to life in the form of a charismatic and charming stranger, a ‘devil’ of a character, Darryl Van Horne. Using his powers he seduces each of the women in turn, he teaches them how to tap into their feelings in a way they never thought they could, and further expand the powers they have locked within. As these powers become more sinister and events begin to spiral out of control, the women come to realize that Darryl’s influence is destructive and he’s corrupting everyone he comes into contact with. The witches with their new found strength resolve to exile Darryl from their lives and rid Eastwick of his hold for good… But is it too late?

Folk at the Brewhouse in aid of Parkinson’s UK
Hand On Heart return to the Brewhouse for an evening of British traditional music mixed with more contemporary songs, all delivered with fun and humour. Nina Szifris and Mike Scott have been entertaining folk music audiences across the UK for the last 25 years. Playing mandocello, guitar and bodhran they produce music which has harmony and a modern Celtic feel, sometimes gentle songs, then driving tunes.
At this special event, they will once again, be joined by Jonathan Trout and Joy Gravestock on violins, piano and vocals.
7.30pm £8 Brewhouse Bar
