THE HOUSE PARTY 2019
A one-off evening of weird and wonderful surprises, unleashing the Theatre’s wild side.
Sunday 22nd September
We’ve got canapés galore courtesy of Ross and Ross and delectable award winning fizz from North Oxfordshire Wine; we’ve got Scary Little Girls’ Rebecca Morden to host you; Mezzo Soprano Claire Bradshaw to serenade you; JJ Henry to….well wait and see what JJ does; we’ve got Lola the most amazing dancer and her world champion roller-skating Dad, Mon.
We’ve got Nicholas Clement, magician to the stars; Ada Campe’s extraordinary cabaret and mime artist Richard Jones, he’s a quiet kind of guy but you’ll get his drift; Kudzanayi Chiwawa to capture you in a spellbinding story; Ben Williams stone carver (yes really); photographer Andrew Ogilvy and the irrepressible, irresistible and ever so slightly loopy After Hours Quintet….and it’s all to raise money for Chipping Norton’s amazing little theatre.
This evening is a great reminder of what The Theatre is all about - a small but perfectly formed rural theatre offering amazing home produced productions including world famous pantomime; arthouse cinema; live screenings; all sorts of live performances from top name comedians to classical music and tribute bands; an art gallery showcasing local artists and a frantically active community outreach and education programme offering everything from adult drama to babies cinema, over 50s dance to youth theatre, relaxed screenings for people living with Dementia, bursaries and complementary tickets for families suffering hardship.
We’re a charity, but we earn over 75% of the funds we need every year, which is pretty amazing with just 213 seats in our auditorium.
We have some fabulous Friends, Patrons and supporters making a real difference to our work - but we still need to work hard to keep going, and we’d really love you to join us at The House Party 2019 helping us to raise some much needed spondulicks in exchange for an exquisite night out.
The House Party 2019 is taking place thanks to the kindness and generosity of James and Sophie Perkins, owners of Aynhoe Park.
