Rugby Festival of Culture, supported by Rugby First and Rugby Borough Council, is back following the success of the first event in 2011. Taking place in Rugby Town Centre the Festival provides a fantastic platform for local musicians, dancers, comics, artists, writers, actors and singers to show case their talent and be part of what is already one of Rugby’s biggest and most popular events. In this guide you will find an exciting array of activities that are guaranteed to offer some great fun and entertainment for everyone – to get a quick overview of all that is happening visit the Festival Planner on page 32.

All the events within the guide have been organised by a variety of individuals, local businesses, groups, organisations and volunteers. Without their help the festival would just not happen.

We hope you enjoy the festival and take the opportunity to support your local town and community. Robin Richter, Chair of Rugby First Ltd and Cllr Heather Timms

Elephant’s Graveyard

The SAMPAD Story

This year’s festival exhibition tells the story of SAMPAD (South Asian Arts) through visually stunning photographs. Sampad started its journey 20 years ago from humble beginnings working locally with artists, schools and communities and has been a key organisation in supporting the development of South Asian arts. Over the years Sampad has established a regional, national and international profile delivering many projects to support the continual development and dissemination of art forms in new contexts and for new audiences. The arts of South Asian origin are steeped in deep traditions, some of them nearly six thousand years old, and are the products of centuries of co-existence between different faiths, languages and ethnic groups.

Venue: Lewis Gallery Time: 2.30pm - 3.30pm & 4.30pm - 5.30pm Cost: Free Booking: Essential on 01788 556227 from 18 June Audience: Suitable for all

Elephant’s Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated craving for spectacle, violence and revenge. ‘Elephant’s Graveyard buzzes with truth about the consequences of misunderstanding, the invisible but enormous gap between artists and their audiences, and the infernal beauty of Vaudeville’. – The Stranger, Seattle

Medea

When the great hero Jason, along with his Argonauts stole the magical golden fleece, he was helped by the princess (and witch) Medea. Medea fell so greatly in love with him that she sacrificed her home and family, even murdering her brothers, to be with him. This tragic play begins several years later after Jason and Medea have been living together in Greece with their two children. Jason has just left Medea in order to marry a beautiful Greek princess. The play tells the story of Medea’s passionate love and despair and the lengths she goes to wreak revenge on the people who have hurt her. It really does show that ‘Hell has no fury like a woman scorned’. This production will be in English although there will be some ‘Greek twists’ as homage to the original. Medea is one of the most performed tragedies on the modern stage. Its terrible ending is exaggerated (one hopes) but its themes of love and betrayal are universal.

TUESDAY JULY 3

The Railway Children The gentle Edwardian lifestyle is about to be turned upside down for Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis... Mysteriously separated from their father, Bobbie and her family relocate to “Three Chimneys” in Yorkshire. As endless days stretch before them, the family set about establishing themselves and making friends in the village. The all-important railway runs like a life vein through the community and its importance grows – learning from the people in and around it, the children rediscover and piece their family back together as the story steams towards its heart-warming and iconic end. Wrapped in a blanket of nostalgia, Heartbreak’s award-winning adaptation delivers the heart and soul of this timeless classic and, with inspirational storytelling and uplifting music at its core, guarantees to have the whole family, whatever their age, on their feet and cheering.

Venue: Caldecott Park Time: 6pm – 8.30pm Cost: Adults £8, Child/Concession £6, Family Ticket £22 (2 + 2) Booking: Essential on 01788 533217 Audience: Suitable for all

In association with Samuel French Ltd In this stage adaptation of the hugely popular TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower revisit the 1950s and Maplin’s Holiday Camp with its host of colourful characters. It’s the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas. He needs female Yellowcoats to go and work out there and the annual ‘Miss Yellowcoat’ competition will decide who is to go. Rivalry between the girls is fierce, with Sylvia and Gladys joint forerunners to win the coveted yellow sash. Camp cleaner Peggy, meanwhile, is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy for a new Yellowcoat and convinces Entertainments Manager Jeffrey that she is the ideal candidate for the job. Ted is forced to employ numerous moneymaking schemes when his ex-wife turns up at the camp with a bailiff in tow, and Yvonne and Barry Stuart-Hargreaves send the rumour mill into overdrive when they overhear Gladys escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one evening. Hi-de-Hi campers!
