Roger McGough - As Far As I Know Thursday November 29th at 7:30pm in Uppingham School Hall

Roger McGough - As Far As I Know
Thursday November 29th at 7:30pm in Uppingham School Hall




Take comfort from this
You have a book in your hand
Not a loaded gun or a parking fine
Or an invitation card to the wedding
Of the one you should have married

“The Patron Saint of Poetry” - Carol Ann Duffy


A new book of poems by Roger McGough is always an event, and As Far As I Know is truly a cause for celebration. Hilarious and surreal, McGough is a poet of many voices: menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of his characteristic wit and wordplay.

Newly elected President of the Poetry Society, Roger McGough has been honoured with a CBE for services to literature, and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool for good behaviour. From Scaffold’s Lily The Pink and The Mersey Sound with Adrian Henri & Brian Patten to Radio 4’s long-running Poetry Please - the beat goes on.

Copies of As Far as I Know will be on sale, and Roger McGough will be happy to sign copies afterwards.
For ages 13+

"Rueful, unpredictable observation to please the sharpest wits" - The Independent

"Profound surprises and lasting images on almost every line" - Siân Hughes T.E.S

He reported from crises in many parts of the world, and his coverage of the 1973 Ethiopian famine - The Unknown Famine - was followed by TV and radio appeals which raised a record sum nationally and internationally. His report contributed to the overthrow of Haile Selassie.

Since then, he has presented numerous documentaries and political programmes, including On the Record (1987-92), The Prince of Wales - The Private ManThe Public Face (ITV 1994) and The Last Governor - the story of the last five years of British rule in Hong Kong (BBC 1, 1997).

He has made Radio 4's Any Questions? and its sibling Any Answers? his private domain for the last 25 years.

Being Human Thursday October 4th at 7.30pm in Uppingham Theatre

Being Human 
Thursday October 4th at 7.30pm in Uppingham Theatre
A full-length live literature show based on the Bloodaxe Books' anthology of contemporary world poetry, Being Human.
Featuring three professional actors, Being Human brings to life the final volume in Bloodaxe's acclaimed trilogy of anthologies, the first two of which toured successfully to venues across the country, introducing contemporary poetry to new audiences. The range of poetry in Being Human complements the first two anthologies: thoughtful and passionate poems about living in the modern world; poems that touch the heart, stir the mind and fire the spirit; poems about being human, about love and loss, fear and longing, hurt and wonder.

This is a rich performance of contemporary poetry brought to life skilfully and enchantingly by a trio of professional actors who can effectively communicate its value to audiences.

'I love Staying Alive and keep going back to it. Being Alive is just as vivid. But this new book feels even more alive - I think it has a heartbeat' - Meryl Streep

The Importance of Being Earnest 
Wednesday January 23rd - Friday January 25th at 7:30pm Uppingham Theatre


What Oscar Wilde called his ‘trivial play for serious people’ must be the most enduring and delightful of English comedies. The dedicatedly silly Algernon loves Gwendolen, Bunburying and muffins: Jack searches haplessly for love (and his own name), the Reverend Chasuble pursues the smouldering Miss Prism, and looming over them all is one of the most unfeasible characters of English theatre, Lady Augusta Bracknell. A plot of fiendish cleverness and endless improbable coincidence is guaranteed to have you bamboozled if you don’t know it, to surprise you once again if you do, and keep you laughing all night either way. An evening of sheer delight and immortal wit.
London Classic Theatre make a long overdue return visit after their excellent production of The Caretaker some eight years ago. Adding to the contemporary ambience there will be music by musicians of Uppingham School, and muffins...

Everyman Monday January 14th at 7.15pm Uppingham Theatre

Everyman 
Monday January 14th at 7.15pm Uppingham Theatre


Everyman is the most famous of the great English morality plays which came before Marlowe and Shakespeare. Devised for and by ordinary people, performed in the street or public buildings, they carried a simple message about living a moral life.
Everyman is minding his own business when he has an unexpected visit from Death. God needs someone to account for the sinfulness and immorality he sees in the world, and so Everyman he must embark on a spiritual journey to cleanse his soul and make him fit for heaven. Will he be able to rid himself of all his earthly baggage, or is he just too human?

Splendid blend the medieval with the modern, smudging the black and white moral certainty of 16th century England with the multi-coloured contemporary swirl. Using early theatrical traditions andCommedia inspired characterisation, they will investigate the very nature of humanity. What does it mean to be 'good'?

Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome, adapted from the novel by Craig Gilbert Uppingham Theatre

Three Men in a Boat
by Jerome K Jerome, adapted from the novel by Craig Gilbert


Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th November at 7.15pm in Uppingham Theatre


Michael Coveney, Whatsonstage
Carrie Swarisback, British Theatre Guide
Concessions £14.00
Please ring the Box Office regarding group concessions

This delightful story has kept audiences laughing for well over a century. Jerome K. Jerome's classic tale of boating misadventure has become the quintessential example of the charm and wit of Victorian England.

In an attempt to escape the stresses of city life three friends J, Harris and George plus their faithful canine companion Montmorency decide to take a boating jaunt between Kingston and Oxford. However a trip intended to relax and rejuvenate quickly becomes a journey of unquenchable comedy, with death defying battles with swans, culinary disasters and contrary tea kettles just a few of the challenges facing the trio along the way.
In this imaginative, new adaptation, the acclaimed and award winning Original Theatre Company take this classic tale by the scruff of the neck. Full of energy, song and just three actors playing all the characters along with a handful of props create all the high jinks and hilarity of the most famous boating holiday in history.

Produced by The Original Theatre Company , directed by Alastair Whatley and Craig Gilbert.

"A modern classic, a rich and heady brew...utterly enthralling"
"It is a pleasure to have the play hammered home by such a gripping cast under Alastair Whatley's strong direction."
Tickets £15.00 

Mother Courage and Her Children Thursday November 1st at 7.15pm in Uppingham Theatre

Mother Courage and Her Children

Thursday November 1st at 7.15pm in Uppingham Theatre
Friday November 2nd at 7.15pm in Uppingham Theatre
"They're waging war for Almighty God and in the name of everything that's good and lovely, but look closer, they ain't so silly" - Mother Courage
Two ideologies collide in a conflict that stretches across a continent and threatens the balance of world power. In its midst, one woman, her three children by her side, sees an opportunity to survive, a way to profit from the slaughter by selling goods to both sides. And the time is about to come when, in her quest for material gain, she must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Regarded by many as the greatest play of the 20th century and even the greatest anti-war play of all time, Mother Courage and Her Children asks fundamental questions about the effects our beliefs have on the world and the role of ideology in society and world affairs.

Lee Hall's (The Pitmen PaintersWar Horse screenplay) brilliant translation of Brecht's masterpiece is accessible, fresh and bang up to date. Brought to the stage by Blackeyed Theatre (who brought Oh what a Lovely War! to Uppingham last year) with breathtaking ensemble performances and live music, Mother Courage and Her Children is an unforgettable theatrical experience.

"Magnificent...Extraordinary...As haunting as it is harrowing...Astonishing power... Catch it if you can"
The Stage on last year's production of Oh! What a Lovely War
Tickets £15.00, £12.50

Groups (10 or more) & Schools £9.50

Don’t miss this darkly comic performance of Neil LaBute’s caustic tale, 'which confirms once and for all Oscar Wilde's dictum that "all art is immoral"' (Guardian, 2011)

Performed by Sixth Formers of Uppingham School directed by Bobbi Nicholson.

Jim Tavare 
Monday January 18th at 7.15pm Uppingham Theatre

Probably best known for his role as Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Jim Tavaré's career as actor and comedian has included writing and starring in ITV's BAFTA winning The Sketch Show, his own comedy series co-written with Ricky Gervais, 3 appearances on The Royal Variety Performance, and several private functions for the British Royal Family. He is Prince Charles' favourite comedian.
In the USA he was winner of International Starsearch, was the only overseas act to reach the final of NBC's Last Comic Standing, and has guested on numerous primetime shows. He enjoyed his last visit to Uppingham so much that it was relatively easy to persuade him to return, bearing his double-bass, to flag up next week's Uppingham Chamber Music Festival.

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Oakham Town Council, The Planning and Parks Committee will reconvene on Friday 5th October 2012



The Planning and Parks Committee
that I interrupted by  giving a verbal protest
will reconvene on Friday 5th October 2012
at 10.00 am the meeting will continue at the point of adjournment.

The notice outside the
council office reads all are welcome to attend

Despite this The Clerk has told me he is seeking legal advice to
see if I remain excluded.

The Clerk believes that as it is a continuation of the meeting 
I may still be excluded.

My protest was no that bad and the Deputy Mayor Chairing the meeting
had said I could remain. 

Then Cllr Alf Dews Mayor who added a new standing order giving members
power to lick people out, proposed that.

I have had discussions with Cllr Lowe and he
is of the view this is a new public meeting and
I should not be excluded. but he is also seeking advice,
The risk is even if I can stay Cllr Dewis is likely to make his 
proposal again, If  I am then excluded I will conduct a silent
protest, I am told if I am attending a public meeting of
the council and holding a silent protest the police 
can not remove me. Cllr Lowe who was a Special Constable 
for Leicester Police confirmed this.

Only two items will be dealt with at this meeting.

The deadline to comment on the planning applications 
has passed. I was told it does not matter because its
a rather pointless exercise.

I asked a Councillor why Oakham Town Council
is so weak when it comes to planning matters in the 
town, the councillor said it is because the County
Council has over turned so many of their past
decisions they con't be bothered anymore.

I was asked not to name the councillor so I won't.
This confirms my comments about the Town Council
and its commitment to our town.

Its really time people here in Oakham kicked out 
this unelected group.  I really can''t work out
what they do apart from spend money as they please.

The First item which caused all the problem on Wednesday
is a repeat, unfortunately the Clerk and the Assistant Clerk did 
not record the vote so if anyone attends on Friday
they are being asked to vote again it will be amusing 
if some don't turn up and the vote forces the council
to go out to public tender. On Wednesday the item 
was approved due two members cowardly abstaining

Abstentions should be banned, Councillor should vote, 
yes or no.

The second item is to consider if the
town  council is going to give the Rotary money 
so they can buy the town  a Christmas tree.

If Cllr Lucas attends and fails to declare a interest 
due to her husband being a member of the Rotary. 
She will be report to the Police and Standards.

What she fails to realise is this involves money 
and under the new code of practice it is 
a criminal offence not to declare.when money
is involved.
