An evening with Louis de Bernieres at Bungay

AUTHOR Louis de Bernieres, who lives just outside Bungay, will be entertaining an audience at the Fisher Theatre tomorrow evening.

In An Evening with Louis de Bernieres, the internationally known writer will be talking about his life and work and answering questions, and also playing the flute, mandolin – his best known work is Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – and guitar. He will also have guests on stage.

De Bernieres’ sixth novel, Birds without Wings, came out in 2004. A Parisians’s Daughter, published in 2008, was short-listed for the Costa Novel Award, and Not Withstanding Stories from an English Village was published in 2009. The event is at 7.30pm and tickets are �16.50.

Next Wednesday is Burns’ Night, and the theatre will be celebrating it with a traditional Burns’ Night supper, with the traditional haggis piped in by a Scottish piper, and addressed by David. It will be followed by a ceilidh with the Shinanikins Band, and highland dress is optional, but desirable. It is at 7pm and tickets are �13.

Next Thursday there is another of the popular Italian Nights at the theatre, with chef Jenny Cooper cooking a delicious three-course meal for �14.95, and served in the appropriately decorated gallery.

This evening there is the chance to see Film Archive, as Stuart Orr hosts the showing of a collection of small films of bygone East Anglia, including ones of Bungay. It is at 6pm and tickets are �5.

Tickets for all events at the Fisher are available from the box office on 01986 897130 or via the website:
