Welcome to Brixham Theatre, 'the theatre at the end of the bay', run by the Brixham Arts and Theatre Society (BATS), formed to promote the arts in Brixham.
Brixham Theatre21st April 2017 10:27AMBATS at Brixham Theatre love to work with other community groups and we are doing just that next weekend, when BATS and Friends of Brixham Library are combining to extend the Brixham Pirate Festival to include both the Theatre and the Library as venues for exciting Pirate Tales by international author, raconteur and storyteller, Cat Weatherill.
On Friday 28 April at 7.30 pm Cat will be kicking off the Pirate Festival with ‘Lost in The Lamplight’, rich and wonderful stories for world-weary adults, told after dark, by lantern light.
Many people assume storytelling is only for children. That’s not true! Cat Weatherill tells tales that are specially chosen to captivate adults.
Her stories are cinematic, deeply emotional and beautifully told. She is a physical performer, with extraordinary focus and intensity, weaving in song and musical instruments to create a shimmering tapestry of tales.
Cat is one of Europe’s leading performance storytellers. She works internationally, from Singapore to Swindon and everywhere in-between. She has performed solo shows at the Barbican and read her stories on Radio 4. Cat is also a published Penguin children’s author and now a Bloomsbury poet.
Her shows linger long in the memory and people always want more. There will be some selected tales especially for this year’s Pirate Festival audience.
Tickets for the theatre show are £12 Advance (£10 FofBL/BATS members), All tickets £14 on the door if available. This show is being sponsored by the Oriental Kitchen in Middle Street, offering pre and post show delicious meals.
On Saturday morning (29 April) the Friends of Brixham Library & Brixham Arts & Theatre Society will be hosting Cat in the Childrens Library, with a story telling event based on her latest book, ‘Jack's Diamond & Other Salty Stories’.
There will be salty tales of pirates, ghosts and miraculous lamps that burn at the bottom of the ocean. Wear your pirate hat and get ready to sail on a Sea of Stories!
Cat will be signing copies of her new book Jack's Diamond after the event, so raid your piggy bank and bring gold! '
“Cat is one of our great storytellers” Michael Morpurgo
