Theatre hosts night of remembrance
PUBLISHED: 15:57 12 November 2010
IT is Remembrance Sunday this weekend and as a prelude, tomorrow night at the Fisher Theatre at Bungay the Friends of All Hallows Hospital are presenting an Armistice Night event, at 7.30pm.
It will feature the Beccles Friends in Harmony choir, formed in 1996 under its conductor Bram Bryant.
It has held many fundraising concerts since then, and has grown in numbers to its present 30 singers, both male and female, raising over £30,000. Tickets, with a box meal, are £10.
Next Wednesday sees the latest of the lunch-time recitals at the theatre.
It will feature Zeffiretti, a wind and harpsichord ensemble, playing a mainly baroque programme which will include sonatas by Telemann, Handel and CPE Bach.
Zeffiretti, which means a little light wind, was formed in 2005 by people passionate about music of the baroque period, though they often extend their repertoire to 20th century work.
The members comprise teachers and freelance professionals based in Norfolk and Suffolk, who have performed frequently around the two counties.
The recital is at 1.15pm and tickets are £6.
On Wednesday evening there is a 1960s nostalgia night, Rock Around the 60s, featuring one of that decade’s top groups, The Honeycombs, and Mike Berry.
The Honeycombs burst on to the scene in 1964 and their first single, Have I the Right was a massive No 1 in the UK, staying at the top for three weeks.
It went on to be a hit in 28 countries, and was followed by many more hits.
The band is back and will be joined by Vanity Fayre and Mike Berry, with the evening hosted by Richard Headingley, of Chicory Tip. Tickets are £16.50.
Next Friday the Open Space Theatre presents Arthur Miller’s classic play, Death of a Salesman.
The Thursday evening film next week, at 7.30pm, is Nine (12A).
Tickets are on sale for the theatre’s annual professional pantomime, Robin Hood, produced by and starring Steve Ace. It runs from December 18-January 3.
In the gallery and the theatre bar there is an exhibition of the work of MAT9, a recently formed group of post-MA textile artists. It will run until November 30.
Tickets for all events at the Fisher are available through the box office on 01986 897130, or via the website: www.fishertheatre.org
