MOUNT EVEREST

A HIGH ALTITUDE ODYSSEY

A TALK BY GAVIN BATE
THURSDAY 25 MAY 7.30 PM AT THE PARISH HALL



Gavin has been on six expeditions to climb Everest’s South-east ridge and its infamous North face, three times without bottled oxygen. Gavin’s 11-year odyssey to conquer the world's highest mountain is a story of perseverance and adventure which he shares with dramatic pictures and exciting videos. Gavin will tell us about the difficult decisions a mountaineer has to make on the way to the top of the world and how the human body can survive when it gets there!

An Evening with… Murray Lachlan Young - Friday 25th November - Manaton Parish Hall

Friday 25th November 2016
An evening of satirical soliloquy, rock-n-roll reverie and devastating-ditty as BBC 6 Music’s resident poet presents his stunning new live, up-close and personal show. A delightful and satirical romp into the bizarre facets of fame, fashion, people, politics, a mild erotic folk ballad and the space-time continuum. This is unique stand up poetry/spoken word performance, from one of the very best in the business.
Acclaimed playwright, actor, screen-writer and poet-extraordinaire, Murray is celebrated for his hybrid mix of stand-up comedy with delightful commentaries on the bizarreness of contemporary life. Expect flamboyant, punchy wit, brooding subtext and empathetic humour.
Mick Jagger recently presented Keith Richards with a CD copy of Murray’s poems, marking the anniversary of Keith falling out of a coconut tree.

Refuge: The English Civil War on Dartmoor - Friday 11th March & Saturday 12th March: Manaton Parish Hall




Refuge: The English Civil War on Dartmoor

It doesn’t take an expert historian to know that the English Civil War was a conflict that divided communities nationwide, and life on 17th Century Dartmoor was no exception. Village was set against village, family against family in one of the most bloodthirsty periods in English history. However, Dartmoor’s unique landscape, with all of its secret haunts, did prove to be an excellent hiding place…

MED Theatre’s 2016 community play will be examining the tensions between history and hearsay during this vivid period in Dartmoor’s past.
