According to the dictionary, ‘peculiar’ means “different to what is normal or expected”, or “particular, special”.
Such qualities sum up our Peculiar Places network, that has a bit of village touring scheme about it, but quite a lot more to boot. In the mix are gorgeous heritage sites, rural pubs, local businesses, community orchards, village halls, streets and open spaces …. and even the odd small theatre. Some of the work is ticketed, some is free …. give it a whirl and uncover new theatre experiences and special places, guaranteed to linger in the mind for that little bit longer.
Forthcoming Events in Peculiar Places
Rex the King - King’s Arms, Easton-in-Gordano, BS20 0PS
Wassail Theatre Company
Tuesday 23rd May 2017
This show is UNTICKETED and is presented on a ‘money-in-the-hat’ basis.
A blind man walks into a bar and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts.
He orders a pint and settles down to recount the story of his glorious rise to the top - and how dark secrets brought him down.
Rex The King is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all – it’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic. Expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
