The play’s the thing
One of the region’s finest amateur theatre groups, Stamford Shoestring, takes on a 20th century classic: Roots by Arnold Wesker. Beatie Bryant returns after three years in London to her farming family home in Norfolk – but she struggles to make her family understand that she has changed, and to understand that they have not.
Tuesday, 6 – Saturday, 10 December, 7.45 pm
Stamford Arts Centre, 27 St Mary’s Street, Stamford

Christmas is coming…
The loveliest, most Christmassy thing you could possibly do to get the festive ball rolling. Gorgeous carols beautifully sung in the soft, traditional glow of candlelight. Luscious!

Holiday excitement
It can’t all be about quaffing mulled wine and opening presents – the festive season should also bring plenty of opportunities for discovery and adventure. This fab, themed, week-long set of activities at Peterborough Museum more than fits the bill.

Strings attached
Theatre of Widdershins’ subversive and hilarious puppet shows are a must for all the family – the traditional tale of Rapunzel is given a zany twist in a thoroughly entertaining and deliciously different show.
