Events Programme


We offer a range of social events. Some are regular each week or month while some are specially planned.

Conditions for all event users at All Saints: Winterton PCC, which is responsible for All Saints, has decided that all users of the church be requested to continue to wear face masks and observe social distancing.This is in order to safeguard all users, especially the most vulnerable, so that all feel able to make use of the building. It also means that total seating will be limited as the seating will be spaced out. We also need to add that we rely on a temporary toilet at present while the new toilets are being constructed [August 2021]

 ‘Nearly Lear’ - Friday 24 September - Susanna Hamnett

 

7.30pm. £8 adults - accompanied under 16s free. Please book tickets via 01724 734285.

 

What if the great and tragic story of King Lear were to be told through the eyes of his closest companion? In this award-winning and dynamic one woman tour-deforce, Susanna Hamnett plays the Fool - and every other character - to tell a very
personal and poignant story that - with breathtaking hilarity and heartache - honours
the beautiful language of Shakespeare's Lear while taking a bit of poetic license.
Welcome to a Lear that is both profoundly accessible and fun, while taking its
audience firmly into the heart, spirit, and emotional core of this great story. Artist's
website: www.susannahamnett.com
Perhaps you recall seeing Susanna in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' or one of her
many other film roles. We are lucky to secure her act for Winterton presented by
Blaize for the Live Lincs Rural Touring Scheme, funded by North Lincolnshire
Council & Arts Council England.

‘Forget Me Not' - The Alzheimer’s Whodunit - Friday 29 October - Rob Gee

 

7.30pm . £8 adults - accompanied under 16s free. Please book tickets via 01724 734285.


Theatre piece with poetry and comedy. Jim's wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has
died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he
smells a rat. He's determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has
dementia. By turns hilarious and thought-provoking, this is a one-man comedy
poetry theatre show that has a lot to say about how we treat and perceive people

with dementia. So much so that, since seeing the show, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust have recruited Rob to work with healthcare staff, using 'Forget Me Not' as a training aid in the areas of compassion and whistleblowing. This has been an entirely new form of training, with 93% of participants saying they would recommend it to a colleague.

Rob worked for twelve years in as a mental health nurse before becoming a writer and performer. He is patron of Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project (LAMP) and lead artist for the Comedy Asylum: comedy shows written and performed by people receiving mental health treatment. He returned to nursing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
