Strictly Ann - An Evening with Ann Widdecombe

Sailing dangerously close to National Treasure status, one of the most outspoken politicians of our time embarks on her first ever national tour.

Entertaining, enlightening and as controversial as you would expect, Margaret Thatcher and Craig Revel Horwood collide as Ann lifts the lid on life in Westminster and shares behind-the-scenes gossip from some of the nation’s best-loved programmes, including Strictly Come Dancing, Have I Got News For You and Celebrity Big Brother.

Beowulf

Beowulf is a performance-game that invites you to explore the world of this legendary story… without leaving your seat. Seth Kriebel describes another place, a frozen world of Vikings and monsters. The world of Beowulf. The audience offers instructions to move through the imagined place - working together to overcome obstacles and fight foes.

Accompanied by an evocative soundscape, Seth playfully immerses the audience in the world of the poem.

Why? ‘Delivers both laughter and poetry’ ★★★★ The Stage

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman
