    Warkworth Memorial Hall concerts

    Time: 7.00pm
    Location: Warkworth Memorial Hall

    Friday 28th June, 2024 The Chet Set
    American trumpet player and vocalist Pete Tanton is joined by John Bradford (drums), Alan Law (piano), and Mick Shoulder (bass) to present an evening with the Chet Set: Jazz standards and anecdotes relating to the life and career of Chet Baker - “The Prince of Cool”.
    Chesney Henry “Chet” Baker Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter and vocalist perhaps best known for his rendition of “My Funny Valentine”. Movie star looks, soft singing voice and mellow trumpet earned him a worldwide following in the ‘50s, until dental problems and heroin addiction led to an itinerant lifestyle and relative obscurity. His fame was rekindled in the ‘80s with the release of the documentary “Let’s Get Lost” which charted Baker’s rise and fall. Jazz historian Dave Gelly described the promise of Baker‘s early career as “James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one”.
    Booking information and further details, along with the guest list for the rest of 2024, are available at www.wwmh.uk/concerts.html or contact Peter Burnham Tel: 01665 711388. Tickets for our concerts are limited and must be booked in advance.

    The Odd Couple (Female’s Version)

    Time: 7.30pm
    Location: Warkworth Memorial Hall

    The Portable Theatre Company is delighted to be returning to Warkworth.
    This year’s production is The Odd Couple (Female Version) by the multi award-winning playwright, Neil Simon.
    The original version won a Tony award and later Simon decided to write this adaptation, featuring women in most of the roles, including the central characters, Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Set in 80s New York, the women meet regularly to play Trivial Pursuit with their four friends. Two Spanish neighbours become the focus of a romantic evening for Olive and Florence, though language difficulties make this far from straight-forward!
    The tone of the piece is much like the original, the comedy arising from the conflict between messy, sports-loving Olive and house-proud, hypochondriac Florence, whom Olive agrees to take in after Florence’s husband throws her out. Full of witty one-liners, the longer Florence stays, the greater the tension and ensuing hilarity.
    Tickets cost £10.00. Available from Warkworth Village Post Office, or, go online, at ptcalnwick@gmail.com where you can purchase by bank transfer. Please note it will be a cash only evening.
