Shakespeare Daughter and the Vicar, 24th May 2019 to 25th May 2019, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (18.4 miles)
It is January 1662. William Shakespeare has been dead for more than 45 years. Many of the secrets about how he wrote his plays have been buried along with his bones in the church at Stratford-upon-Avon. A new vicar, curious about Shakespeare's plays, is sent to the town. He seeks out the person who still has first-hand knowledge of the Bard, Shakespeare's daughter Judith Quiney.

The Car Boot is open on BANK HOLIDAY MONDAYS this year so the next is this weekend 26th/27th May & then 25th/26th August. Stonham Barns also now has a brand new Theatre where there are shows on virtually every Sunday adding even more people to Stonham each week.

So, just turn up from 8am this Sunday. As mentioned we also have Covered stalls available each Sunday. These are great for protection from the sun/rain and no need to bring a table with those 07817539168 to pre-book. Otherwise NO BOOKING NEEDED AND FREE BROWSING. Sellers are now allowed to sell any plants and all gardening items.

Stonham Car Boot gets busier every week and Stonham is alive with people camping, the Holiday Homes full up and the popular attractions drawing more & more visitors to the Owl Sanctuary, numerous Shops and New Play area & now open New Crazy Golf (which looks immense). The Car Boot is one of only a few Traditional ones where you can really enjoy a friendly, peaceful day in the countryside at a venue that has so much for everyone to see and do. So why not come and have a great day out at Suffolk's friendliest Sunday Car Boot and come & see the NEW Stonham Barns with so much on offer. Early risers can get there for 7am but the sensible ones turn up from 8am.

Make sure you turn up & sell from only Five Pounds. We also have the additional bonus of regular events that run at the same time as the Car Boot so check the link so you can sell to the extra crowds. There are many more events this year at Stonham now which means that we will have many more buyers.

If you haven't been to Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot come this Sunday and you'll love the friendliness of Stonham. Below is a little bit more about Stonham and the Car Boot, make sure you visit our Web Page and Facebook pages as it tells you a lot more about Stonham and what is going on weekly as it rarely is the same each week. We are open from April till November every year.

Stonham Barns Car Boot is still the one to go to if you want a completely stress-free day without the buyers climbing into the back of your car We have had 150 sellers on some weeks last year and we are lucky to have buyers that actually buy. Stonham is known for its one-off sellers and Antiques (as well as all the normal Car Boot items) and in our Seventh year we are getting a good regular crowd of sellers and buyers.

Emily Dickinson, one of the greatest & most loved of American poets, the reclusive "Belle of Amherst", continues to be an elusive figure. In The Hound Within The Heart, we shatter the myth of Emily as a virginal neurotic, and present her as a fierce, brilliant and sexually charged writer in charge of her own destiny. Was there a secret love in her life? What was the explosive event in her past that "stopped... existence"?

"Time Stood Still" UK Tour - The Ollie West Band , 17th June 2019, 19:30 to 22:30 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (18.4 miles)
"Cinematic, Orchestral Pop" is a phrase not used frequently by bands to describe their sound, yet for The Ollie West Band this fits perfectly. Formed in 2014 by singer, songwriter and pianist Ollie West, this Manchester based ensemble is creating unique music that transcends genre and the generic ideas of the pop band. With influences as far spread as Elbow and Billy Joel to the Cinematic Orchestra to Claude Debussy, the band's instantly recognisable sound has been praised by the likes of Neil McCormick and Dean Friedman.

As We Forgive Those tells the story of two estranged sisters, Alex and Sophie, who meet again in unusual circumstances. Gradually, their tentative reconciliation is threatened when Jen, Sophie's roommate and friend, shakes Sophie with a revelation about Alex that leaves her - and the audience - reeling. Written in 2011, it's a sharp, terse and darkly comic play that explores the pain of the past, the struggles of the present, and our hopes for a better future. Advised for ages 14+, due to adult themes and some strong language.

Tickets: �£6, �£3 (OAP, FTS, under 16's)
