  • Thu 27 Feb 2014 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

     

    Featuring the great detective recounting highlights of his crime-busting career, the show also includes autobiographical snippets detailing his life and times, the adversaries he has faced and mysteries he has solved. The performance is an affectionate one-man homage to the world’s greatest detective that includes quick costume changes and wry humour.

    We are delighted to welcome the wonderful Jonathan Goodwin to Avoncroft Museum for his high energy one-man show featuring the world’s greatest detective recounting highlights of his crime-busting career.  There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask the sleuth questions about his life and time, his most dastardly adversaries and the mysteries he has solved.

    The show has been described as “brilliant, witty, intelligent fun theatre”

    Jonathan is a true Sherlock Holmes fan and has been from an early age.  He was very nearly the youngest ever member of the London Sherlock Holmes Society but was just pipped at the post by a precocious Stephen Fry.

    The show is presented by Don’t Go Into The Cellar! Theatre Company, specialist purveyors of Macabre Victoriana.

  • Thu 13 Feb 2014 8:15 PM - 11:00 PM

    Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, Catshill, Bromsgrove, B61 0JJ

    Though he can trace his family back to the Skye McKinnons, only a few generations removed from Scotland, Dan himself hails from Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the Canadian Maritimes, an area rich in the musical and cultural traditions of the North Atlantic. His warm baritone voice, superb guitar arrangements and original compositions have won him widespread praise. Dan's thoughtful compositions and smooth melodies cover the entire folk spectrum, with themes traditional, historical, contemporary and universal.

    A gentle unassuming man - one of nature's gentlemen, in fact - who travels around the UK by train and bus with a backpack and a guitar on his annual tours from Canada. Dan has tremendous stage charisma and engages an audience - both hearts and minds. He's equally happy on a large festival stage or a small folk club, telling stories in song. And what stories... tales of the British war brides of Canadian servicemen in the 1940s... the story of how Canadian merchant navy sailors eventually got the recognition they deserved for their war service - sixty years late... tales of his own grandfather and learning about Aesop's fables as a child... the true tale of a bride who wanted the best wedding dress and lost her beau by chasing her dream...

    In addition to his many solo performances and recordings, Dan has performed with Symphony Nova Scotia and toured Atlantic Canada and Ireland as part of an International Theatre Festival show about the life and times of Stan Rogers.

    Tickets unnecessary....members £6.00....non-members (more than welcome) £8.00....under 21s £3.00 plus free membership.
