with Annette Badland and Hugh Ross
Friday 5th October 7.00pm for 7.30pm
Introduced by Michael Maine, Vicar and Rural Dean of Cuckfield.
Following on from last year’s success, the evening will again feature two celebrated actors reciting poems. These will be selected from the bestselling A Poem for Every Day of the Year.
Currently appearing in The Winter’s Tale and Eyam at London’s Globe Theatre, Annette Badland is an award-winning actress, nominated for an Olivier for Sadie in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. She is known for her rôles in Eastenders, Dr Who and Bergerac, and on stage with the RSC and the Almeida Theatre. Archers’ fans will remember her as horrid Hazel! Hugh Ross has had a long and distinguished career as an actor on stage, film, television and radio, and more recently as a director. Last year, his production of JB Priestley’s The Roundabout transferred from London to the USA, where it was The New York Times’ Critics’ Pick.
Michael Maine has an abiding passion for music making, and is well-known as an organist. He is also a keen reader, possessing a small collection of very early printed books and far too many other books.
Tickets for the supper are £60 each for a two course meal. You will be welcomed with a glass of Ridgeview sparkling wine accompanied by a selection of canapés.
Tickets will be on sale from mid August when the programme is published and are not available online. Please email email@example.com
