Stephen Grant: Amusings 23rd Sep 2021 Stephen Grant: Amusings Event Image Event Fee: £12.50 Event Time: 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm Doors Open: 7:00 pm Location: Court Bushes Community Hub, Willow Way, Hurstpierpoint Partway through the 3rd lockdown in 2021, award winning Brighton comedian Stephen Grant had a fairly hefty whack on his head. Now he's having thoughts he's never had before, with everything all over the place and being seen in a different (flashing, throbbing) light. And he seems to have lost the social ability to not upset people, though there's some debate that was ever there in the first place. Thankfully, this is all very funny. Join him for a one-off stand up solo show where nothing is off limits, as he has no idea where those limits are any more. ***** Comedy that has the ability see around corners - Chortle ***** Hilarious - The List **** Masterfully funny - Daily Express

Hurst College Drama presents The Tin Can People 21st Sep 2021 Hurst College Drama presents The Tin Can People Event Image Event Time: 8:00 pm Doors Open: 7:30 pm Location: New Bury Theatre, Hurst College Tickets are Free but must be booked in advance It is now seventeen years after the nuclear holocaust. A group of survivors has formed a peaceful commune living off some warehouses filled with tin cans of food. A stranger is warmly welcomed into their midst, but when one of the group drops dead, the stranger is assumed to be contaminated. As the deaths multiply the group leader determines this intruder must be hunted down and killed. Thus the survivors, who seem to believe in old ideals, change when they feel threatened to barbity. From one of Britian's greatest living playwrights, The Tin Can People has found new resonance in the backdrop of a global pandemic. Presented by young people from Hurstpierpoint College with a 13+ recommendation for audiences. Free mini-bus transport to and from the College will be available from the Trinity Road Car Park approximately 30 minutes before the event start time.
