Forget Assassins Creed; the real history and legends of the Knights Templar is equally exciting, with many unsolved mysteries to this day. Historically a monastic order of crusading knights in the middle ages, the Knights Templar began from humble origins, but soon became a powerful, international organisation, answerable only to the Pope, and institutionally extremely wealthy. As the medieval crusades failed, so did the Templars, and in 1307, among accusations of heresy, and treason, the senior members of the Order were arrested. Legend tells that their wealth, seen by eyewitnesses only months before, had vanished. With the accusations of heresy upheld, the Order was disbanded, and the last Grandmaster, Jacques de Molay, burned at the stake in 1314.
Legends remain. What became of the Templars treasure? Were they really heretics, or victims of a political trap? Legends tell of them protecting various secrets, including those that could destroy the church - some of those legends relate to the Holy Grail; the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper, or lost gospels, or even that Jesus himself had descendants who lived on through the ages.
Based tightly on the history, and some of the theories, the film follows Hughes and Angelo, formally of Jacques de Molays inner council, from the fall of Acre, to Paris, and then as they go on the run to the Bristol preceptory, tonwards to Templecombe in Somerset and then to Trebeigh in Cornwall .
Location - The Victoria Hall, Crewkerne, Somerset

Eric Idle & John Du Prez's musical lovingly ripped off from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Once in every show…. there’s a song that goes like this….
Arthur, King of the Britons, is on a special quest to find a rabble of knights good enough to join him and rule around his round table in Camelot, so he sets off with his faithful companion, Patsy to find his “Grail”.
On his way he manages to come across the Knights that go Ni, the Lady of the Lake, a set of cheer-leading Laker Girls, some rather rude French people and a man who’s “Not Dead Yet’.
Mix together some of Monty Python’s best loved song, “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life” and some “Fisch Schlapping” and you have Monty Python’s hilarious and riotous humour brought alive on stage by the award winning Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust.
Spamalot has everything a hit musical needs; sparkling costumes, jokes a plenty, boundless energy, lots of hair flicking and just a few reference to a once popular tinned meat.
Join King Arthur and his knights for a night of fun - and remember, “What happens in Camelot, stays in Camelot”.
Adapted and dramatised by Tim Kelly from the Classic Thriller by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes’ most spine chilling mystery in a version which contains suspense, humour and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse of death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, suspicion falls on all who have connections with the estate.
In the Malcolm Edwards Theatre(MET) at Stafford's Gatehouse.
Tickets are £9.50(concessions £8.50)from www.staffordgatehousetheatre.co.uk or 01785 254855. The Gatehouse Theatre add their own booking charge.

Think about your life, Pippin.
Days are tame and nights the same.
Now think about the beauty
In one perfect flame…
Meet Pippin. Young, ambitious, full of potential and ready to change the world. But things are never that simple.
Setting out to make his mark, Pippin dabbles with the horrors of war, the lure of sex and the sordid world of politics, failing at every turn. But there is someone Pippin can rely on. Someone he can trust. Someone who can help Pippin be remembered forever… in one final, extraordinary blaze of glory.
With its infectious and unforgettable score from four-time Grammy and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has delighted audiences across the world. The most recent Broadway revival swept the New York awards circuit, including winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
Join us. Perhaps you’ll find your very own corner of the sky.
7.30pm, plus Saturday matinees at 2.30pm

0Who wins? You decide! Innovative Audience Participation in Centre Stage London’s Mic Drop
Mic Drop - a musical throw-down, lets the audience decide who wins in an innovative musical showcase.
It’s officially on! In a new musical concept, Mic Drop, Team Girls take on Team Boys in this musical throw-down of epic proportions! Each team will battle for fame and glory but only one can be victorious. Who will it be? Well, the audience has the power!
The creative team of Centre Stage London’s latest production Mic Drop wanted the show to be as interactive as possible and let the audience decide who wins at each performance. They thought about many options including a digital voting system on mobile phones before settling on a far simpler (and arguably more fun!) method, the ‘Ready Steady Cook’ audience voting system!
Audience members will be given a voting card upon entry; one side supporting #teamboys and the other supporting #teamgirls. Teams will compete over several themed rounds, guided by our energetic compere. During the performance the audience make up their minds which team they think has performed the best and who should win the performance for the evening. At the finale, the host will ask the audience to vote, displaying their cards, and the winning team will be decided. It’s ‘Popstars’ meets ‘Pitch Perfect’ with some incredible talent battling it out for glory! A great night out with something for everyone, featuring well-loved classics and re-worked pop arrangements from the Four Seasons to Celine Dion. Who wins? You decide!
The production opens in two weeks, so there’s no better time to grab your tickets, pick your side, and consider the gauntlet thrown!

0Following the sell-out productions of "Opera of Ages" and The Magic Flute, DOE have had a fantastic year, most recently with their run of HMS PInafore in Durham. We are delighted to bring this wonderful performance to London this Summer. Featuring "When I was a Lad" and "I am the Monarch of the Sea", HMS Pinafore marks one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most renowned operettas.
Set on a ship, this show explores the relationship between Josephine, the Captain's daughter, and Ralph, a lower-class sailor. Social class becomes an obstacle for the pair as Josephine's father attempts to marry her to the First Lord of the Admiralty. Will his mind be changed when he finds himself in a similar position, when Buttercup, a nanny, falls in love with him?

0Bishopstoke Players’ September production this year is based on the much-loved TV comedy, “The Vicar of Dibley”. All your favourite characters from the hugely popular series – Alice, Hugo, Owen, Jim, David and of course Geraldine – will be on stage to bring you an evening of fun and laughter.
The ancient old vicar of Dibley has passed on and parishioners are horrified to learn that the Bishop has appointed a woman in his place. As Geraldine battles to win over the sceptical parish council, the villagers (with the exception of influential David Horton) gradually learn to accept her as The Vicar of Dibley.
This show brings together some of the best loved moments from the TV series and links them to make a wonderful evening of comedy, culminating in a fairy-tale wedding.
Performances are in Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th September 2018 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 (£6 for those aged 16 or under) and are available from www.bishopstokeplayers.uk/buy-tickets or email email@example.com or phone 07871 006551.
“The Vicar of Dibley” has been adapted for the stage by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer. With kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions.
As with all Bishopstoke Players’ productions, proceeds will be donated to the charity Action for Children.
