Jack the Ripper: The Real Truth

Trevor Marriott is a retired British Police murder squad detective and leading Ripper expert.

For the past 130 years this mystery has captivated the imagination of people worldwide and still does today.

Trevor has now finally concluded his long and protracted cold case investigation with startling new evidence and new facts, which now not only dispel but shatter the myth that has been Jack the Ripper for 130 years and he is now able to answer that long standing question to which everyone wants to know the answer, who was Jack the Ripper?

Nunkie Theatre Company: Dead Men’s Eyes

Two chilling and thrilling tales from M R James, the master of the English ghost story.

In ‘A View from a Hill’, a pair of old binoculars reveal the grisly history of an idyllic stretch of English landscape. In ‘The Treasure of Abbot Thomas’, a treasure-seeker comes face to face with unspeakable horror at the bottom of ancient well.

Dead Men’s Eyes is the sixth instalment of Nunkie’s M R James Project, a series of one-man shows that seek to revive the tradition of oral, supernatural storytelling that was perfected by Montague Rhodes James in Cambridge in the years leading up to World War One. It follows shows like ‘Oh, Whistle…’, ‘A Pleasing Terror’ and ‘Casting the Runes’ which have all toured to large, appreciative audience throughout the UK, Ireland & USA.

Oysterband & June Tabor ‘Fire & Fleet’ Tour

One of the most exciting collaborations in folk music, June Tabor & Oysterband, resumes this autumn for a major tour. With separate distinguished careers to pursue, their appearances together are necessarily rare, so this is a must-see opportunity to catch them live.

The majesty and control of June’s voice combine with the passion of John Jones’ singing and the dynamic drive of Oysterband to illuminate dark traditional ballads and contemporary classics alike – witness their moving duet version of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, widely regarded as the best-ever reinterpretation of that much-covered track. Songs from their seminal 1990 album ‘Freedom & Rain’ and their multi-award-winning 2011 follow-up ‘Ragged Kingdom’ will of course be featured, plus exciting new material.

Age 8+

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Atkinson – Theatre
Tickets £20. Plus booking fee £1 per ticket online/phone.
