Historically we were always trying to capture the fleeting image, one that reflected reality as we saw it. By contrast, in a world of iPhones and Instagram we now often see images that present an altered sense of reality. Although photography is a creative art form in itself, the concept of this theme showcases the results achieved when camera settings, editing techniques and creative angles are used to the photographers advantage.

All art is subjective and we fully expect visitors to be challenged by the work on display. Some images may be considered beautiful, while others are thought-provoking; some may even challenge your perception on what constitutes a photographic image.

CREATIVITY is a touring photographic exhibition, created and supported by The Photographic Angle.

Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change.
Disabled visitors are advised to check with us before visiting an exhibition so that suitable access can be provided.

A hilarious high-energy musical whodunit, Murder For Two is a madcap murder mystery with a twist. Two actors play thirteen characters… and the piano in this acclaimed new musical. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, Murder For Two is a hysterical blend of music, mayhem and murder.
When famous novelist Arthur Whitney is found dead at his birthday party, it’s time to call in the detectives. The only problem is, they’re out of town. Enter Officer Marcus Moscowicz, a neighbourhood
cop who dreams of climbing the ranks. With the clock ticking, it’s up to Marcus to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime before the real detective arrives.
Murder For Two was recently a huge hit Off -Broadway. The production will have its British stage premiere at The Watermill Theatre prior to a run at St James Theatre, London.

Three Weeks Edinburgh
“Pure filth and wildly funny” – Views from the Gods.

Final Act – Tom Taylor
“Tom Taylor returned for a cracking headline set. He’s a quirky, sometimes musical act with all the nervous energy of early Adam Hess with original gags and a confidence to work in the moment and mock his own stupidity. Dad jokes – and plenty of better ones besides – are rarely done this stylishly.

The Watermill Theatre

Kansas Smitty’s has become a name synonymous with good music and real people. You’ll hear the sounds of New York, New Orleans, Paris, and Havana in their sour mash of jazz genres. Smitty’s musicians are young and hungry virtuosos whose musical flights are more like athletic miracles than practice room exercises. Jazz with grit. You’ve never seen another band like this one because it doesn’t exist. Of course we won’t expect you to take our word for it…
The Big Four’s unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass, separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano. This streamlined formation allows the band tightness whilst maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. The band is made up of Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland.

Ian McDiarmid, well known for his role
as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine in the Star Wars film series, and numerous stage credits for the RSC, National Theatre and Donmar Warehouse plays the titular role and brings Goethe’s gripping masterpiece to life in this bold new adaptation, staged at The Watermill for the first time.

Berkshire
RG20 8AE

“I’m not the marrying sort, and I shan’t ever be. That’s why I’ve got to take my own line now!”
Frustrated by the monotony of suburban life and her father’s strict rules, Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to win her independence, and follow her dream of becoming a scientist. The only problem? It’s 1909, and she’s a woman – in a patriarchal society still in the grip of stuffy Victorian morals.
Risking everything to fulfil her ambition, Ann Veronica flees to London, and joins a dizzying world of freedom and ideas, of dapper socialites, eminent biologists and the courageous women of the suffrage movement. But can she live independently in a society that won’t even grant her the right to vote? Does freedom always come at a cost?

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Watermill Theatre
Bagnor
Newbury
Berkshire
RG20 8AE

The Watermill has become known around the world for its bold, ensemble driven approach to presenting Shakespeare.
For our anniversary year we celebrate
this rich history by presenting a brand new production of a play that balances comedy, romance and tragedy in equal measure.
Bohemian, outlandish, isolated: Illyria is a land where everyone has lost something and they will use any means to survive. Viola is washed ashore. Compelled to survive in a mysterious ethereal land, she disguises herself as Cesario to serve the solitary Duke Orsino. What follows is a tale of mistaken identities, seduction and transformation, leading to a complex love triangle and the potential destruction of all propriety.
This production is reimagined in the 1920s where prohibition is rife and Europe is still reeling in the wake of war.
Fuelled by a scintillating selection of energetic jazz music, the ensemble who brought last year’s epic Romeo + Juliet
to life reunite to create a dizzying and beautiful version of Shakespeare’s perfect play. The radical spirit of Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong is fused with an innovative approach to staging and actor- musicianship to tell this timeless story

In the unique setting of The Watermill, Alan Ayckbourn’s pair of linked comedies will be performed simultaneously by the same cast between the theatre and a marquee in its beautiful gardens. With hilarious consequences, one character’s entrance to House is another’s exit from Garden in this fast-paced duo of plays!
At the Platt country manor, whilst womanising landowner Teddy Platt eagerly awaits the arrival of an old friend in the house, in the garden, preparations for the annual village fete are well underway.
Amidst the manicured setting, gossip, affairs and petty feuds run rife and with a host of colourful characters and troubled couples mingling throughout the day, tensions run higher still into the night.
This will be the first time that Ayckbourn’s play has been performed both inside
and out, promising to be a very special production that will be epic and intimate in equal measure.
Elizabeth Freestone has directed for the RSC and Shakespeare’s Globe and makes her debut at The Watermill Theatre.
Dress warmly to enjoy the experience of watching great theatre in two locations.
“You look a bit – overdressed. For a garden fete.”

“That’s where we differ then. I buy it and keep it. You don’t buy it. But neither of us likes throwing away.”
Linda is a self-confessed ‘collector’. She has all the necessities: broken umbrellas to match any outfit, unopened Amazon parcels delivered in 2012, shoes that
don’t fit but were a bargain at 75 percent off and trainers because, one day, she will definitely take up running. To add to her collection there
is Toby, an affectionately named rat who has taken up residence in her home.
With the arrival of Jonathan, a man who can’t sleep if the sponge is in the wrong place by the kitchen sink, comes a more life-changing situation than Linda could ever have imagined. The journey that follows is one of love, loss and an infatuation with Stevie Wonder memorabilia.
A poignant new play by Ellen Robertson, Nesting is a funny and moving look at compulsive behaviour and finding love in the most unlikely of places

The Royal Berkshire Charity (RBC) is delighted to introduce a new and exciting event to its 2017 fundraising calendar – The RBC Soapbox Challenge.

On Saturday 19 August, amateur drivers will drift their homemade soapbox vehicles down the track at Englefield Park, near Theale in a bid for the coveted first place.

The non-motorised racing event will challenge entrants to design and build imaginative soapbox dream machines to race in two timed runs down the course. Each machine will be hand-made and fuelled by nothing but courage, adrenaline, and the force of gravity. The fastest cart will be the winner!
Entry to the event is £100 per team for seniors (18+ years); £50 for juniors (12 to 17 years). As this is a fundraising event, the RBC ask that participants also try and raise as much sponsorship as they can for their chosen cause.

Spectators will pay a nominal charge of £5 which will cover entry to the event and car parking
