CSD Brass will perform again in an evening of skirmish and mêlée as we explore the more bellicose areas of brass band repertoire.
The performance will include Eric Ball's excellent "Tournament for Brass", an arrangement of Prokofiev's "Montagues and Capulets", and other favourites.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start. Refreshments available during the interval.
Tickets £8 (under 16s free) available on the door or online on our website.
In the original 'Hamlet', Shakespeare did not explicitly state the species of his tragic hero.
WHY WAS THIS? It is one of literature's greatest mysteries.
Did he want us to guess? Or just to presume that Hamlet was human?
Most productions these days favour the latter interpretation, which has now become mainstream. But what if Hamlet was a fish?
This play explores the likely events that may have occurred, and concludes that for Hamlet it would have made very little difference.
