Event Description

Elton and his new friend are in deep trouble... Though they barely know each other, they've got mixed up together in a nasty incident which has put someone in hospital.

Event Description

'Time Please' is a darkly-comic play, set in a run-down pub in a deprived neighbourhood. The grimness offset by the misplaced optimism of barman Steve and the epic sarcasm of his feisty wife, Cath. Enter Keith Goodman, shambolic and drunk, with a planet-size chip on his shoulder. Off his head on booze and pills, he's determined the world should know his woes. Chock-full of wild conspiracy theories, he has hatched a plan to get his story heard, and so begins the lock-in like no other.

Event Description

Even before she came to Belton, Minty had known she was a witch, or something very much like it. When she uncovers a time portal (the ‘Moondial’ in the grounds of Belton House) she meets Tom the sickly kitchen boy, and Sarah, a girl whose family think her birthmark makes her the ‘Devil's child’. Ghosts, an evil governess, the terrifying Miss Raven and time itself must be overcome to save the children of the past. Based on the best-selling children's book, from a Brighton Fringe Award-winning company, ‘Moondial’ is a creepy, chilling and uplifting play for adults and children alike.
