The Bible and Science: Conflict or Consistency
Wednesday September 7th 2016
8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
New Priestwood Community Centre
Priestwood Court Road

RG42 1TU

An open-minded reading of the Bible readily reveals its emphasis on proof and evidence. This talk will consider the nature of science to distinguish between theoretical ideas which can be tested by experiment, and those which deal with the past and are much more speculative. The idea of a God who not only created the Universe but intervenes in it makes a big difference to your view of science, as Isaac Newton, the famous physicist and Biblical student, could testify.

The speaker is a Christadelphian and a Professor of Experimental Physics at Birmingham University

Boublil & Schönberg’s THE PIRATE QUEEN
Friday October 28th 2016 - Sunday October 30th 2016
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
BritVic Theatre
London Road


This new musical combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is a thrilling adventure, a timeless romance and an historic epic.
Based on the real-life story of Grace O’Malley, The Pirate Queen tells of a compelling, inspirational woman; a heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, chieftain and mother in 16th Century Ireland. Grace was a fiery, defiant figure with incredible resilience. She was able to unite the feuding clans of Ireland against Elizabeth’s attempt to conquer Ireland, which ultimately brought her to a tense face to face meeting with the Queen of England.
This highly romanticised telling of her life was a collaboration between Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and the producers of the worldwide phenomenon Riverdance.

An enchanted forest, fantastical creatures and a mother-in-law who turns out
to be an ogre combine to create an entertaining story that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Expect a touch of Roald Dahl in this acclaimed version by Rufus Norris with plenty of original music. A magical Christmas show like no other!
