Violet Brimley, widow of the Parish and woman ‘of a certain age’, has had a long and varied career spent on her hands and knees……as a cleaning lady. From pubs to posh houses this National Treasure provides her clients with specialist services – the tiniest flicks of her feather duster leaving everything spick and span. But there is so much more to the job than just cleaning.
In A Lifetime’s Interest, Trouble for Sixpence and Lady with a Fan, Violet reveals what really goes on behind closed doors.
This evening includes a 2 course supper.

Making a very welcome return this April are the sensational Holy Moly & The Crackers!
Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses. Their upcoming third album, ‘Take A Bite’ (released April 5th2019 on the band’s own Pink Lane Records), is concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock. The sound of a band who have been searching and experimenting for several years; arriving at a place where they can say “this who we are and this is where we want to go”.
HM&TC are exciting, young, inspiring, cheeky, fun – but most of a collective of talented performers destined to make your evening one to remember. Their huge hit Cold Comfort Lane featured in the movie Oceans 8, and also in the TV advertising campaign for the Kia Sportage.
Not to be missed.
Award winning Jazz guitarist MARTIN TAYLOR teams up with acoustic and slide guitar virtuoso MARTIN SIMPSON. The pair shares the stage throughout the performance – adding to each other’s songs and instrumental pieces, taking them to sublime new heights. Martin Taylor was name-checked on BBC Radio 2’s Breakfast Show as being considered THE best guitarist by no less than Jeff Beck – leading to a live session on the show the next morning. Completely self taught, he has enjoyed a remarkable musical career spanning across four decades and during that time has invented and developed a way of playing the guitar that is admired, and often imitated, by guitarists all over the world. As well as being a true guitar innovator, he is also a master concert performer, dazzling audiences with his solo shows, which combine virtuosity, emotion and humour, with a strong stage presence. He spends much of the year travelling the world, playing in concert halls in Europe, North America, Japan, Asia, and Australasia.
As well as his solo concerts and recordings, he has also collaborated with musiciansfrom many different musical genre including, Stephane Grappelli, Chet Atkins, EricClapton, Bill Wyman, George Harrison, Dionne Warwick, Bryn Terfel and Jamie
Cullum. In 2002,he was appointed MBE “For Services To Jazz Music”, in The Queen’sBirthday Honours List, which he received personally from Her Majesty The Queen at aninvestiture at Buckingham Palace.
There is no doubt that after 35 years as a professional musician Martin Simpson is, right now, better than ever. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. Martin has been nominated an astounding 23 times in the eleven years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer – with 9 consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year, which he has won twice.
2008 saw an incredible 5 nominations for "Prodigal Son’ and 2 wins, whilst in 2010 he had an unprecedented 6 nominations for his CD, "True Stories" and a win for Best Traditional Track, "Sir Patrick Spens". Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual and a guitarist of immense subtlety.
