Harry and Chris - This One's for the Aliens

Harry and Chris (Guardian Pick of the Fringe 2018) are at the top of their field, having invented the field of comedy-rap-jazz.

From the ridiculous to the sublime, the world’s greatest comedy-rap-jazz duo bring award-winning wordplay, awe-inspiring musicality, eyebrow-raising bromance and unashamed joy to the biggest PR task of all time - spinning planet earth.

'The duo’s best show yet' ★★★★★ Sunday Post

'One thing’s for sure, with Harry and Chris at the helm this planet is in safe hands' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

'Their show is unique, intelligent and very entertaining, that does indeed enlighten the soul' ★★★★★ Deadline News

Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.

'Move over War Horse, this polar puppet is magic' The Guardian

Join us for Talking Tables

Talking Tables is a new pilot project from Norden Farm that aims to bring people together in a relaxed environment to discuss events, share ideas about what they are seeing and most importantly - to meet new people!

Talking Tables is particularly aimed at people coming to Norden Farm on their own, but all are welcome.

Our next Talking Tables event is on Sunday 27 October from 1.30pm for people coming to see the 2pm screening of Downton Abbey. To take part, simply book in to see the film, then join the group in the foyer before the screening.

Norden Farm volunteers are the Table hosts. They will be on hand to welcome people and answer any questions.


Wille Edwards

Wille Edwards is a Cornwall based musician, eclectic songwriter and front man of internationally acclaimed band Wille and the Bandits.

He embarks on a solo tour of the UK, performing their acoustic songs like Under the Grove which is no longer played in the Bandits’ set.

Wille hopes to raise awareness of homelessness in the UK and help raise money through a charity single. The tour will cross the south of the UK; between shows Wille will volunteer with charities that support those who find themselves homeless or at risk of homelessness, he hopes to be able to gain some insight into the lives of some of the UK’s 320,000 homeless (Shelter, the National Campaign for Homeless People Limited).

The tour will be followed by the release of a single which will be targeted for a Christmas release; proceeds of the sale of this single will go to Crisis and The Big Issue to help support the work they do with those who unfortunately find themselves homeless in the UK.

WHY? A unique seated solo gig from Wille, raising awareness of homelessness

Captured live from The Old Vic.

Enter the Dragons

Expect fantastical characters, ridiculous puppetry, extreme wigs, physical comedy and delightfully dark humour. Sixty minutes of laugh-out-loud joy, dissent and touching humility for anyone who is considering ageing.

Enter the Dragons is an hilarious, surreal odyssey through the challenges of growing older, which explodes myths about beauty, sex and femininity.

An archetypal Hero is reframed as a mature woman in the modern world. Gripped with
fear at her advancing years, she sets off on an epic quest to defeat Chronos, the god of time, and halt the inevitable - ageing. Will she succeed?

Written and performed by Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards

WHY? ‘Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards are a brilliant comedy coupling: the writing is sharp as a witch’s nose’ Total Theatre

‘Utterly hilarious, simply ingenious’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Suitable for ages 16+ years.
(contains strong language and nudity)

Branagh Theatre Live: The Winter's Tale

Due to phenomenal demand, The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare's timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption, returns to cinemas this festive season.

This beautifully reimagined production, co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, features a remarkable cast including Dame Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman, Jessie Buckley, Hadley Fraser, Miranda Raison and Sir Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.

King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…

WHY? This critically acclaimed production was the first in the hugely successful Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live season that was broadcast to cinemas from London’s Garrick Theatre over the course of a year in 2015
