Furthest From The Sea - Belper Fringe Supporter: SATURDAY

Saturday 3rd July, 4pm - close
Number 28 Belper

Your ticket gives you access to all events hosted by Furthest From The Sea at Belper Fringe, on Saturday 3 July. Doors open at 4pm.

You'll see all four shows (cheaper than buying individually), be in a really exclusive group of supporters, receive some goodies (maybe a badge, maybe a couple of custard creams!), and really importantly, you'll be helping to support the Festival, and the organisation who put these events together. Look at it this way - that's your very own warm fuzzy glow that you're buying, and you get some fantastic entertainment thrown in!

NELLY - An afternoon with Nell Gwynne
A one-woman folk musical - a work-in-progress.

Saturday 3rd July, 16.50 - 18.10
Number 28, Belper

Nell Gwynne is the classic rags-to-riches story of a woman born into poverty who ended up being the most famous woman of her day. An orange-seller at the theatre, she became its leading comedy actress and then mistress to King Charles II. And she was funny. And how. Samuel Pepys called her “pretty witty Nell”. It’s said the whole world knows Nell Gwynne. Our play tries to show you why. Come and see how we’re getting on!

Words by Graham Hopkins; Songs by Jo Freya; Robb Johnson; Reg Meuross; Lucy Ward; Boff Whalley; and Dave Wilson. Robb Johnson, Winter Wilson and Lucy Ward will be performing their songs live in Belper.

BELOW THE BELT with Benny Shakes

Saturday 3rd July, 18.40 - 19.30
Number 28, Belper

Benny Shakes brings his popular online podcast to Belper, for a very special live edition of "Below the Belt with Benny Shakes": a game show that has comedians trying to perform ordinary tasks with handicapping obstacles to show the challenges faced by those living with disabilities as we laugh at their fumbling.
 

Joining him will be team captains Mark Burkwood and Kate Lovelock.
 

The panel features Colin Etches, Kitty Messalina, Sunny Shine and Cosmic Kat.

CHIPS, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING

Sunday 4th July, 18.40 - 19.30
Number 28 Belper

A spoken word performance from Rob Stamper, introduced by Paul Broesmith from The Lost Boys.

Rob is a comedic performance poet and performs anywhere where people will not throw things. As well as supporting Les Barker and Elvis McGonagall, Rob launched his first book outside a hardware shop and his third in a chip shop. Just because he could. The world is indeed, his chip pan!

In this amazing new show Rob will take you on a journey where the humble chip meets meteorology, seaside resorts, tourism, beer, Englishmen, fine dining and aliens, with a wassock or two thrown in on the way.

No chips will be harmed during the performance, but the truth could be battered.

AWKWARD QUESTION TIME

The hit lockdown panel show has been unlocked and will be heading to Belper for it's first time in front of a live audience.
