Kindertransport

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Presented by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Les Theatres de la Ville de Luxembourg in association with Selladoor Productions

By Diane Samuels
Directed by Anne Simon
Designed by Marie-Luce Theis

A deeply moving and timely modern classic about a woman’s struggle to come to terms with her past.

Hamburg 1938: nine year-old Eva is forced onto a train by her desperate mother in order to escape the threat of World War II. Arriving at Liverpool Street Station, tagged like a piece of luggage, she’s handed over to strangers.

Manchester 1980: Evelyn, a proud mum, prepares to say goodbye to daughter Faith as she leaves the family home. But what Faith finds in the attic will change her life forever…

This heart-warming production is from the producers of last year’s acclaimed revival of ‘The Crucible’. It marks the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, which saw thousands of Jewish children ferried from Austria and Germany to safety.

Diane Samuels wrote this extraordinary and haunting play 25 years ago. It has never been more relevant than today.

The Baghdaddies

Manor Ballroom, 4 St Margaret's Green, Ipswich, IP4 2BP

A few more details ...

The Baghdaddies’ exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as wandering brass troubadours. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to.

“If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.” — Uncut Magazine

Wolsey Writers – Spring 2018

‘You can make anything by writing.’

Have you got a story to tell? A touch of the poet? Are plays your scene? Or do you struggle to find your voice? Wolsey Writers is a creative writing group which meets backstage at New Wolsey Theatre. It offers space to let your imagination work, tips on how to improve, and encouragement to help you achieve your goals. Whether you’re new to creative writing or looking to stretch yourself, this workshop will support and inspire you.

‘It was brilliant – I can’t remember a better writing class.’
‘Humble, informative and inspirational – that is surely the success and key to Wolsey Writers.’
‘Coming at a time when I’m trying to write my first novel, these sessions have been invaluable.’

Wolsey Writers is facilitated by award-winning author, Katie Ward. Her debut novel, Girl Reading, was critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic. @katiewardwriter, #WolseyWriters, or facebook/katiewardwriter.

10 March – What’s Your Poison?
Bond was fussy about martinis; Gatsby liked to stay sober; and Alice obeyed a label that said DRINK ME. Inspired by your favourite tipple, we will focus on descriptions.

17 March – Political Speeches
‘I have a dream…’ ‘We shall fight on the beaches…’ ‘The lady’s not for turning…’ How do you write a speech that can change the world?

24 March – Dialogue
Dialogue is everywhere in fiction, yet it is notoriously difficult to write well. We consider what great dialogue sounds like and how it works.

7 April – Time Travel
Have you been a victim of the butterfly effect? Do you know your TARDIS from your DeLorean? We explore the quirks, tropes, and paradoxes of time travel.

14 April – Ekphrasis
Ekphrasis is when one work of art is inspired by another in a different form. This week we experiment with creative writing from music.

21 April – Prison Letters
We explore epistolary novels and letter writing as a storytelling device.

Saturdays, 10am – 12 noon. Meet at Ticket Desk.
£14.50 per workshop, or book all six in advance for £75.
Tea & coffee provided.

Suitable for writers aged 18+.

Twisting The Night Away With Si Cranstoun

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

A welcome back to this dynamic show featuring the powerhouse vocals of retro King Si Cranstoun and his band’s blend of Doo Wop, Rock n’ Roll and Rocking Rhythm & Blues.

The distinctive tenor highs of Si Cranstoun’s voice echo that of Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke and the great black American singers of old. This amazing show is a highly charged toe tapping journey, driven by retro dance rhythms and spearheaded by Si Cranstoun’s ability to write songs that could have been hits in the fifties. Si has established himself as a regular attraction at the major Swing and Blues Festivals in the UK and Europe. His talents have also been seen in Las Vegas and Australia and his recordings have seen very impressive sales.

Si Cranstoun is known as King of Vintage Scene by his energetic live performances and his ability to turn every show into a party. Aficionados of classic music are in for a night to remember and will be blown away by the pure quality of this wonderful showman.

House Tours of Glemham Hall

Glemham Hall, Glemham Hall, Little Glemham, Woodbridge IP13 0BT

A few more details ...

Up to the attics, down to the cellars and everywhere in between...
A guided tour of Glemham Hall by the owner, Philip Hope-Cobbold

You will be guided around the majority of the Hall, from the depths of the cellars, right up to the largely untouched servant quarters in the attics, whilst learning about its vast history and stunning architecture, where elements of the Elizabethan era can still be seen.

Philip will provide an engaging talk covering art, historical events, previous occupants and what it was like to grow up on a country estate. He is a wonderful host with a dry sense of humour, which encourages many a tall tale!

"Philip is a wonderfully exuberant host and we all enjoyed a lovely afternoon. The homemade cakes were delicious"

The Gardens feature an avenue of Irish Yew, a stunning Rose Garden, herbaceous borders and a Summerhouse. Wooden benches dotted here and there encourage you to sit back, relax and enjoy these beautiful spaces.

Tours booked through Glemham Hall last for approximately 2 hours and include tea, coffee and a slice of home-made cake

Upon Arrival
For all House Tours, please arrive at the main front door 10 minutes before the tour is due to begin. Free parking is available to the side of the property and is clearly signposted. There is good and level access for disabled visitors on the ground floor and around the gardens but the tour does include a few flights of stairs to the first and second floors. Should you wish to opt out of this part of the tour, you are welcome to take a seat in the Library and the rest of the group will join you after the tour has finished!

A New Wolsey Theatre Production

The 6th of May 2018 will mark 40 years since Ipswich Town’s Historic FA Cup victory - a moment when Ipswich united to celebrate success as the underdog became victorious. Join us to celebrate with a milestone musical production!

With a hasty wedding, a first birth and missing tickets to contend with, will our mad-keen Ipswich fans make it to the Final? Can the Town navigate the frozen pitch at Bristol Rovers, the rioting Millwall supporters at the Den, dodgy refereeing at Highbury and make it all the way to Wembley? Created from the heart-warming memories of super blues fans themselves, with a live soundtrack of chart hits from '78, join Bobby and his Blue Army on this nostalgic trip down Wembley Way.

This production has been created thanks to support from: East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star, who inspired the title Our Blue Heaven from their newspaper front cover on Monday 8 May 1978; BBC Radio Suffolk; Ipswich Town Supporter’s Club; Ipswich Town Football Club; DanceEast, and to the kind donations gathered from our Indiegogo campaign in Autumn 2017.

#PULSE18 - KNOT

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Breath-taking acrobatics and humour explore our hopes for the ideal lover

A chance encounter between two acrobats: a frustrated lover and a jilted dreamer. This is the story of two hearts making sense of imperfection.

The Knot is the invisible string that connects two people. Sometimes strong, sometimes just about to break, it is the complex yet simple bond that we juggle with our whole lives.

Funny and heart breaking, Knot reveals the raw underbelly of Nikki & JD’s relationship with an effortless balance between spectacle and intimacy.

Knot was developed in collaboration with rising star Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance and with support from the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project. It first premiered at The Place, London, as part of the 2016 Resolution festival and has benefitted from residencies and financial support from Déda, No Fit State, Jacksons Lane, Warwick Arts Centre and DanceEast.

#PULSE18 - Me & Robin Hood

New Wolsey Studio, St Georges Street, Ipswich, IP1 3NF

A few more details ...

Make the world a better place by changing the story of money.

“I love Robin Hood. We’ve been best mates for over forty years - ever since I met him as a seven-year old boy in autumn 1975. Recently, we’ve spent a lot more time discussing the state of the world. He is 100% convinced that the main reason for the recent turmoil is down to the growing gap between the rich and poor. Robin says that money is a fiction that relies on mutual trust and that we can change the story of money. This show is his idea. He says it’s the only thing I can do if I want to make the world a better place. And, like Robin says, we can definitely do better than we’re doing at the moment.”

Me & Robin Hood is Hoipolloi’s latest show questioning the value of art and the power of story. Following on from The Duke, which captured the public’s imagination with its combination of theatre and fundraising and has raised over £46,500 to date, Me & Robin Hood seeks to raise money for Street Child United World Cup 2018. Audiences in 2017 raised over £20,000 for the worthwhile charity who use the power of sport to change the way the world negatively sees and treats street-connected children, so they can be protected, respected and supported to build a life away from the streets. Please bring cash to the show, we have more work to do to change this story…

A Hoipolloi & Royal Court co-production in association with Pleasance, PBJ Management and Theatre Royal Plymouth. Supporting Street Child United World Cup 2018
