An Otter’s Tale
Oct 27 @ 15:00 – 16:00

“An Otter’s Tale” by Fat Cat Theatre Company

Three enchanting stories about the animals who live at Shapwick Nature Reserve in Somerset or: “Close encounters of the furred kind”

Running time: approx 55 minutes

This fantastic puppet show was commissioned and specially written for Natural England by Jane Leakey of Fat Cat Theatre Company. It tells the stories of some of the amazing animals who live at Shapwick Nature Reserve in Somerset and provides a fantastic opportunity to meet the inhabitants “up close and personal”.

Delightful puppets bring the story to life – including Jack the rat, Buddy the mink, Emily the watervole and Harry the heron. Jane spent many hours researching these wonderful creatures and then creating her fantastic puppets which both children and adults love.

Jane really enjoys performing the show: “Sometimes it is tricky to see animals in the wild. That is why puppets are so brilliant in giving children the opportunity to meet the local wildlife face to face. I find that young audiences gain a great deal of knowledge when they meet my characters, whilst having fun at the same time. Some young people, after viewing the show, are inspired to go to Shapwick to look at the real thing. And Shapwick is one of the best places in the UK to see otters.

Recommended for children aged four and over

Baz Luhrmann Season; The Great Gatsby
Feb 18 @ 19:00

Join us for our monthly movie night held on the 3rd Monday of each month. This season we will be showing movies from the legendary director Baz Luhrmann.

This Months Movie; The Great Gatsby

Winner of 2 Oscar 2014 Academy Awards including: Best Production Design Best Costume Design Winner of 2 BAFTA 2014 Film Awards including: Costume Design Production Design From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby.

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan.

It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
