Craft Beer and Comedy Night

Friday 6th September in Wedmore Village Hall

We thought you might like to know about this strictly 18+ comedy show that is coming to Wedmore.

Wedmore Theatre takes no responsibility for the content – but it looks like being a fun night out!

After a sell-out tour, One-Off Comedy Nights is, for the first time ever, pairing up with the fanatics at Langham Brewery (South England’s award-winning craft beer makers) and Brewed Boy to bring to Wedmore Village Hall a very special event. They’ve booked world-touring comics who’ll be sharing raucous jokes and stories – the kind you won’t get on TV! Specialist craft brews and batches of the finest beers are being prepared, many of which you won’t find on the high street. There’ll also be fancy Prosecco and wines.

The show is led by Michael Hackett, a Manchester born comedian who performs stand-up around the UK, Europe and Australasia. He is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and is the author of the bestseller book ‘Gobsmacked!’ (you guessed it; he once was a dentist).

According to One-Off Comedy Nights, the night planned for us will be raw, the drinks a delight and the talent wild. The event is strictly 18+ and expects to sell out.

Early Bird discount tickets are now on sale. Up until 7th August the price is only £10. After that tickets will cost £12.

Ondervinden’s Production of ‘Tess’

Saturday 28th September in Wedmore Village Hall

This retelling of Hardy’s classic novel is coming to us direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

“Grab your pints, take your seats and keep your wits about you, for the wild, the rough and the shocking are round every corner…”

In this mad-dash play packed with folk music and dance, Thomas Hardy’s Victorian classic Tess of the d’Urbervilles is given a fiery and loving restoration. Performed by three virtuosic actresses and an outstanding live folk band, the tale of Tess – who fights to overcome a harrowing encounter at the hands of her cousin Alec – is brought vividly to the stage in this production which is touring the pubs, inns and halls of West Country villages.

‘Tess’ is a show with the West Country at its heart; the play is a homage to the importance and love of one’s home, and in particular, a love of the rolling hills and open skies of Hardy’s Wessex.

‘Tess’ is a co-production of Ondervinden Theatre Company and Gin and Tonic Productions, and is being generously supported by The Thomas Hardy Society. Tickets will be on sale soon.
