Spamalot - KATS @ Kennet School | England | United Kingdom

Name of event: Spamalot
Date and time: 21 – 23 February, 7.30pm (additional matinee 2.30pm on 23rd)
Location: Kennet School, Stony Lane, Thatcham, RG19 4LL
Cost: £12, available from http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/katsorguk or PictureIT in Thatcham

KATS are proud to present Monty Python’s SPAMALOT, a musical lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Spamalot is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen. Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.

Described as being ‘Funnier than the Black Death’ and winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, the hilarious Spamalot was written by Python legend Eric Idle, with a fantastic score co-written by John DuPrez including “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life“.

Rooted deeply in the English tradition, in 2007 they received a 75th Anniversary Award from the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

Built on bones: How digging up the dead reveals the past @ Corn Exchange
Feb 24 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Built on bones: How digging up the dead reveals the past @ Corn Exchange | England | United Kingdom

Brenna Hassett, on Sun 24th Feb 2019, 3pm Balcony Bar, Corn Exchange. Brenna is an archaeologist who specializes in using clues from the human skeleton to understand how people lived and died in the past.

The talk explores evidence of health and growth locked into the body, and how clues from archaeological teeth and bones can tell us key parts of the human story. Building on her work across the world, including Thailand, Greece, the Pyramids in Giza, a 10,000 year old village in Anatolia, and a series of basement labs in between, the talk will be an accessible journey through our recent evolution into a majority-urban species over the last 15,000 years.

15,000 years condensed in 50 mins – that’s a good use of time!

Brenna is also one of the cofounders of Trowel Blazers, an organisation dedicated to outreach activities aimed at encouraging participation of women and underrepresented groups in archaeological, geological, and palaeontological science. https://trowelblazers.com/about/ .

As always, if you have any feedback on any of the talks or comments you’d like to make, please feel free to email (info@newburytalks.org.uk), contact us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/newburytalks/) or via the website (https://newburytalks.wordpress.com/)  or tweet (@newburytalks) us! If you’ve enjoyed the talks, then please spread to the word to other people in the area who may be interested in what we’re doing.

Also, if you like what we’re trying to do, and would like to support us, we have a Patreon page where you can sign up to giving as little as $1 per event – https://www.patreon.com/newburytalks

Autism Berkshire NAS Autism Seminar – Meeting Sensory Needs @ Thatcham Baptist Church

Autism Berkshire - Workshop Article Image

Autism Berkshire is pleased to present this National Autistic Society Family Seminar on Meeting Sensory Needs.

This course is suitable for parents and carers of children and young people with autism spectrum conditions, or whose children are on the waiting list for a Berkshire CAMHS autism assessment.

It looks at sensory systems and how they work, how autistic people may process sensory information differently and have different sensory experiences, and strategies to help with sensory needs.

There will also be seminars at the same venue about Understanding Autism on Wednesday, January 30, and Managing Anger on Wednesday, March 27. Tickets for these must be booked separately.

Refreshments are provided, however you must bring your own packed lunch.

  • For this series of three seminars we are using a new venue, which is a short walk from Thatcham railway station, to make it easier for people without access to a car to attend. The station is served by GWR local trains on the route between Bedwyn, Hungerford, Newbury, Theale and Reading.
