This year we have a real treat for our summer fundraiser at beautiful Whitcombe Manor! 

The outrageously funny, Olivier Award-nominated actress, singer and comedian Dillie Keane is making a special trip to Dorset for one afternoon only to play and sing her repertoire of original songs – from gorgeous songs of love to songs of downright filth. 

Not for the fainthearted!  But very very funny.

Join us for a unique experience in lovely surroundings – as ever, your ticket includes a complimentary glass of bubbly and delicious canapes, creating a perfect summer afternoon of pleasure.

 “Keane, whose piano-playing remains as sprightly and inventive as ever, prompts gales of laughter with merely the raising of a quizzical eyebrow.”  The Times

By the kind invitation of Minette and Alec Walters

This comedy sketch show will take you on a journey from the topical and tropical to the meticulous and ridiculous.

Travel to Easter Island, face up to Killer Ladybugs, peek inside a woman’s handbag and trek alongside some not-so-religious pilgrims.

Written by 3-She, a trio of Dorset women writers who will make you laugh at the absurdity of the everyday.

Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018, comic Harriet Kemsley pulls her skirt out of her pants and shames slut shaming in a nationwide tour. In a Cornell University study women rated fictional female peer, Joan, as emotionally unstable and less competent because she was sexually promiscuous. If Joan wasn’t fictional her name would be Harriet Kemsley and in this deeply personal and hilarious show Harriet delves into her sexual history.

The time is 4.17pm.
No-one is dressed yet.
Civilisation has collapsed.
Law and order has broken down.
The kids are high on sugar.
The adults have lost control.
Every conversation is an argument.
The coffee has run out. A child scribbles on the wall.
Someone spills a drink.
Everyone is shouting.
This is Toddlergeddon.

Join award-winning comedian and bestselling author Sam Avery (AKA The Learner Parent) for an evening of hilarious stand up, brand new for 2020. How do you raise a toddler with more attitude than Kanye West? Can you negotiate effectively with a pre-schooler who knows you’re clueless? And will any of us survive Toddlergeddon?
