EVENTS – so far!
Theatre in the Living Room
Title and Deed
by Will Eno
Wed 5, Thu 6, Wed 12, Thur 13 June, 8.15pm
Redlands, 16 George Hill, Crediton EX17 2DT (no parking available)
The premier of a new “living room” show will happen in Crediton, in a living room. Come and witness “a powerful and intimate theatrical event”.
An unnamed Man arrives and immediately engages his captive audience by speaking directly to us, in what sounds like our own language. But his first words — “I’m not from here. I guess I never will be” — make it clear that he’s a stranger, a traveller. Not one of us. If you want to see what Beckett or Pinter might be writing in the present day, then this show will satisfy you like no other. A hauntingly funny monologue for anyone who has sat among friends at home and thought: “I’m not from here.” And that’s probably every single one of us. Suitable for 14+ year olds.
Tickets: £10 must be booked in advance, no admission on the door
Love to Dance
Share and Perform
Sat 15 June, 3–4pm, Crediton Arts Centre
An opportunity to see the various Love to Dance Older People’s companies in action and find out how to get involved.
LOVE TO DANCE is a unique community dance project that promotes the creativity and well-being of older people in the South West. Its Life Circles programme supports the health and creativity of older people through bespoke, movement-led arts activity in care settings. We use touch and sensory work with props and visual aids as powerful tools to allow people to use their imagination to remember and feel experiences and engage fully with life past and present.

Life Circles National Training Day
Regional community choir gathering

A great chance to experience singing with approximately 250 singers. It brings together people to learn, by ear, new songs in harmony, taught by Alison Whittall and others in the BIG SING. It also enables choirs to share songs in a vibrant concert (including stunning ‘Glorious Chorus’). The emphasis of the evening is about enjoyment, celebrating our singing community in Devon and taking
part in a really uplifting event. Donations are made to the Festival, the Church and Second Sight (curing blindness in Bahir, India). Collection made for the charity on this worthwhile charity on the night.
Tickets £6 (ticket numbers will be limited so book early)
