We continue to present shows in the village hall under the Centre Stage touring arts banner. The Centre Stage scheme, supported by the Arts Council, provides funding to bring professional companies to small local venues so that villages like Braunston can host top class performances at village rates. These shows are a great opportunity to experience high quality entertainment on your doorstep, from productions that have often won acclaim at events such as the Edinburgh Festival.

An alphabetical and musical journey through science.
We discover how octopuses smell, how to make one twin age faster than the other, how everything began and eventually how everything will end. Going from Atoms, Big Bangs and Cells through to X-rays, Y-chromosomes and plenty of Zoology, expect the unexpected - and expect it to rhyme.
This is the brand new show by John Hinton, multi-award-winning writer and performer of the Scientrilogy of musical comedies about Darwin, Einstein and Curie. Now he's back, just playing himself this time, but still singing silly songs about science in all sorts of genres from acapella to zither, and getting rave reviews from wherever it's performed ‑ at the Brighton Fringe this year it won an 'outstanding' accolade.
Recommended for ages 7 to 107, it's a show that will be enjoyed by everyone, children and adults alike.
Tickets are £10 adult, £7.50 under 16, and £30 for a group ticket for four including at least one child. Available from Cheryl on 07956 308808, or email email@example.com.
Doors open 6.30pm, show starts at 7pm. Light refreshments available.
Sat 23rd June - Doors open 7pm
The James Joyce Band are returning for another ceilidh night - or it might be a barn dance, a hoe down or simply another riot of jigs and reels. Whatever it's called, it will be great fun with supper included and a licensed bar. ( Unreasonably high corkage charges will be levied on anyone bringing their own booze ). The last one pretty much sold out, so put the date in your diaries and get your tickets early.
Tickets are £12 to include hot supper, available from Janet on 759556, Rob on 774388, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All proceeds to be split between the Village Hall and Braunston Church - good causes on your doorstep.
