Comedy duo Croft and Pearce will bring their acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show to Ickleton Village Hall on Saturday, October 8 for a comedy night supported by young actors from Cambridge University Footlights and introduced by actors Jason Merrells (star of Casualty, Cutting It and Safe House) and Emma Lowndes who played Mrs Drewe in Downton Abbey. The couple used to live in Ickleton.
Comedian, Jason Manford, brings his Best Of show to Cambridge Junction, promising a wealth of comedy anecdotes, misunderstandings and audience banter delivered with the comedian’s likeable charm and teasingly intelligent wit.
Gyles Brandreth, wit and wordmeister, and a regular participant on BBC Radio 4’s Just a Minute and BBC television’s The One Show and Have I Got News for You, will be at The Rhodes Theatre, Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday, July 16.
The early watercolours of artist Edward Bawden will be displayed in a new exhibition at the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden. Edward Bawden was one of the Great Bardfield artists who moved into the village in the 1930s and between them designed post-war Britain.
The new exhibition at the Fry Art Gallery running until Sunday, July 24 features black and white photographs by James Ravilious (1939-1999) together with some of his, and his father Eric Ravilious’s wood engravings.
