Stage show, folk gig, dinner-dance - coming soon in Rugby

Andy Morris 7th Nov, 2019

CHRISTINE Anderson Theatre School (CATS) is staging its 44th annual show at Rugby Theatre.

Inferno is described as a light hearted look at the seven deadly sins.

The show, which features singing, musical theatre, ballet, jazz, contemporary and tap, will be performed by a cast ranging in age from three up to 17.

Performances take place on November 7, 8 and 9. Visit www.rugbytheatre.co.uk or call 01788 541234 for tickets.

AN ACCLAIMED folk duo will play a candlelit gig at St Andrew’s Church on Friday (November 8).

Ye Vagabonds – Irish brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn – won the prestigious Radio 2 Folk Award last month.

They play harmony-rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960s folk revival.

They will appear as part of their European tour, playing songs from their 2017 self-titled debut album, and this year’s follow-up The Hare’s Lament.

Local ales will be available to buy.

THE BRADBY Club will celebrate 100 years with an evening of music and dance at its Centenary Dinner on Friday November 15.

Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin tribute singer Mick the Knife will provide the music.

It takes place at the Arnold House in Elsee Road from 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Dress code is black tie or lounge suit.

Tickets, which include a two-course carvery dinner, cost £25 and are available by emailing events@bradby.org.uk or calling 01788 544344.

Money raised will help the club’s ongoing appeal to fix structural defects at its dilapidated headquarters.

Years of neglect and a rise in vandalism at the venue have left the club facing closure unless it can raise £15,000 for repairs.
