The Trail of Queen Caroline a Performance Warwick Words History Festival

From 23/11/2019 to 23/11/2019

Ballroom Court House Warwick

A collaboration between the University of Warwick History Department and the Loft Theatre Company.

In 1820, following the death of George III, Caroline of Brunswick, the estranged wife of the Prince Regent – now King George IV – returned to Britain from her continental exile, despite attempts to bribe her to stay away.

The new king pressured the government to bring her to trial on a Bill of Pains and Penalties, in an attempt to deny her the status of Queen Consort. She became a cause célèbre for popular radicalism, especially in London, fuelling opposition to the much derided George IV. 

This performance aims to situate the events and to convey some of the evidence informing the drama that unfolded in the House of Lords, as the government of the day  sought to follow the king’s instructions to them.

£4.00 Tickets

Jane Eyre

From 27/11/2019 to 28/11/2019

Bridge House Theatre Warwick

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will”

A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, Jane Eyre tells the thrilling story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to a life at Thornfield Hall and an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Falling in love, she gradually uncovers a hidden past to the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall, a terrible secret that forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.

Don’t miss Blackeyed Theatre’s brand new stage adaptation of one of the greatest works of English fiction. Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom, and lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling.

“One of the most innovative, audacious companies working in contemporary English Theatre”

Light up a Life Myton Hospice Warwick

From 08/12/2019 to 08/12/2019

Warwick Myton Hospice

The festive season is an exciting time with bustling shops, presents to wrap and catching up with friends and family. But it is also the time of year when we take time to remember those who are no longer with us and the difference they made to our lives.

Every December we host Light up a Life services at our hospices in CoventryRugby and Warwick to give families and friends the chance to celebrate the lives of their loved ones in the run-up to Christmas – when memories feel somehow more poignant.

We would like to invite you to join us at one of these remembrance evenings.

In return for a donation, you can dedicate a light on one of our Christmas trees in memory of your loved one and have their name included in the service. Your gift will help to ensure we can keep caring for patients and families who need us now and in the future.

When you make your Light up a Life donation we will send you a special tag which you are invited to bring along to your chosen service and tie on to one of our trees.

If you are unable to attend one of the Light up a Life services but would still like to make a donation, we hope you can still feel part of the campaign by remembering your loved ones and tying the tag onto your tree at home.

If you would like to continue to support us in memory of a loved one then why not set up an In-memory page here.
