The Tempest


Oh brave new world?.

Twelve years have passed since Prospero was overthrown. Now the tempest he has conjured up brings his enemies within reach of his island. With a cast of larger than life characters including a monster, a drunken butler and jester, and a mercurial sprite will his magic be strong enough to bring about the revenge he seeks?

A Peek into the Lives of Berkshire Women during the 19th Century


doors 6:30pm

Compared to other counties in 19th century England, why is there little or no information written about the women of Berkshire?  Who were they, what did they do and where can we find out more about them? Find out in this fascinating talk by professional genealogist, Lin Ricketts.  A talk to tie-in with International Women's Day, which was earlier this month.

Tickets are £5
