Dear Creative Oundle friend,

Welcome to our March Newsletter! We have exciting events to tell you about in this edition.

Comedy Night – March 30th, 7:30 PM (Doors and Bar Open at 7:00 PM)

Nothing to do over the Easter weekend? Do come along for another of our excellent comedy evenings – the January event was completely sold out so do book your tickets in good time! This evening stars the amazing Michael Akadiri, inaugural winner of the Komedia New Comedy Award, finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2021. Supported by the hugely talented Friz Frizzle whose musical comedy has appeared on BBC Radio 4, as well as local talent Alexandra Haddow. Compered by Oundle’s own Farah Sharp. A show not to be missed! 

PLEASE NOTE  — This show may contain references to adult topics like sex/drugs/swearing and is not suitable to under 16s.

This event will be held at Oundle’s Queen Victoria Hall, providing a cosy and welcoming atmosphere for an evening of entertainment and community. There will be an interval in both events where you can refill your glasses and stock up on snacks!

We are showing the the film Cinema Paradiso on the 26th April. As always, the film begins at 7.30pm and the bar opens at 7pm and also during an interval mid way through the programme! Come along and make an evening of it with friends.
