Upcoming Events

Robertsbridge Christmas Capers

Friday, 6th December
6 pm – 9 pm

RAP is delighted to again be sponsoring the Lantern Making workshops, and the Friendly Giant Lantern Procession. Martin Brockman and Simon Page have worked tirelessly to put together a truly spectacular display. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it got bigger and better!

Starting from the Mission Room and outside the George Inn, then meeting up to form one parade, children and their families will process up and down the High Street and Station Road with their beautiful, hand-made lanterns culminating in an unmissable, magical finish outside the Seven Stars.

RAP is also taking part in the Open Houses, and will be at Robertsbridge House, 61 High Street, together with local crafts people. Tickets will be available for our next two events, A Penny Pinchers Christmas Carol and A Star in the Jar.  More details below. Please do drop in and we’d love to see you!

Winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy

When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker, reconciling the affections of his host’s drippy daughter Madeline Bassett with his newt-fancying acquaintance Gussie Fink-Nottle.  If Bertie, ably assisted by the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t pull off the wedding of the season he’ll be forced to abandon his cherished bachelor status and marry the ghastly girl himself!

Will Bertie get caught with the Policeman’s helmet again?  Will Aunt Dahlia get her way and lead Bertie into trouble?  How often will Jeeves save the day?  And who is Seppings?

Based on P.G. Wodehouse’s delightfully bonkers stories, this Goodale Brothers’ dramatisation premiered at the Duke of York’s Theatre, West End. Written for a cast of three, who play multiple roles, this adaptation will keep you laughing and breathless all at once. A stuffed dog also makes an appearance.

We’re thrilled to have co-writer David Goodale with us on the evening!
