The Three Musketeers – The Haymarket, Basingstoke – Wed 25 Oct 2017

 

Don’t miss the high energy, interactive show The Three Musketeers at The Haymarket during half-term, on Wednesday 25 October at 2pm.

Chaos, mayhem and stupidity reign supreme as children’s comedy trio The Three Half Pints swish their swords, buff their boots and flourish their feathers in their most ridiculous adventure yet.  Will they defeat the dastardly evil-doers?  Will they save the damsel in distress?  Will they actually read the book before writing the show?

Fresh from Justin’s House and Spot Bots, join the CBeebies’ favourites in a hilarious new slapstick adventure of chivalry, swordplay and suddenly falling over.

Along with music and songs, the show combines slapstick with elements of stand up, sketch comedy and pantomime.  It is not a strict retelling of the story!  The 17th century has never been so silly.

Tickets for The Three Musketeers are priced at £12 (includes £2 booking fee).   Running time 90 minutes including interval, the show is suitable for those aged 5 and over and their families.

For more information or for tickets, call the Anvil Arts box office on 01256 844244, or visit the website anvilarts.org.uk.

National Play Day is CANCELLED TODAY!!!! 2nd August 2017

Basingstoke & District Council did a risk assessment this morning with the RCS Team who were organising today’s event and given the wet ground from yesterday and the predicted rain today, they have decided that it’s best to cancel.

I’m totally gutted for the RCS team as I know how hard they have been working in the background to make this event happen.

Thank you for all of your understanding and we are all just as disappointed as you are!!!

Thula Mama singing group for mums!

Rebecca sent me a lovely email asking me to let you know about Thula Mama

Thula Mama singing group for mums!

I’m a mother of a 2 year old – Elliott – and I live in Bramley. I’ve just started a new career path as a singer and singing teacher and as part of my new ventures, I’ve become a franchisee of Thula Mama (pronounced ‘Tula Mama’).

cropped-photo-for-poster

Thula Mama is an alternative and inspirational singing group for mums of bumps and pre-crawling babies. Unlike most musical singing groups for babies and toddlers, this one is all about the mothers and giving them an hour and a half to relax, unwind, meet up with friends and enjoy singing beautiful but simple harmonies together.

thulamama_advert_oct16

We learn lovely songs and lullabies from around the world – not a ‘wheels on the bus’ in sight! The babies really benefit from hearing the sound of their mother’s voice singing to them and the soothing harmonies created by the group.  There is absolutely no experience necessary and it’s an extremely inclusive and gentle process, with all songs and learning taken at an appropriate pace for the group.

I’m starting my sessions on Wednesday 2nd November from my home in Bramley and will be running them every Wednesday at 10am. The introductory price will be £5 with everyone’s first session being free.

You can find out more on my facebook page www.facebook.com/ThulaMamaBasingstoke and also on the website www.thulamama.co.uk
