Sunny has been playing the outrageous and raunchy Lilian Bellamy in BBC Radio 4’s The Archers for the past 12 years and has become one of the listeners’ most favourite characters. Her antics have kept the nation entertained, whether it be riding round Ambridge on a Harley Davidson, drinking the bull and the cider shed dry with Eddie Grundy or absconding to Costa Rica with her beloved and very wicked Tiger. And then of course there is Tiger’s brother Paul… Sunny will fill you in on all the behind the scenes stories about the world’s longest running soap opera - an evening of anecdotes, banter and favourite pieces from Sunny’s long and distinguished acting career - humorous and touching in turn. Includes a question and answer session with the audience about the making of The Archers – now in its 61st year!
A bold, playful and joyous poetry-cabaret What Words Are Ours? features some of the most innovative and daring UK artists working with text, poetry and spoken word. Showcasing a luscious variety of artists What Words Are Ours? combines drag, rap, experimental sound, punk poems, political satire and British Sign Language poetry, as well as more traditional spoken word artists. What Words Are Ours? is about language and power. Words have kept us down, held us back and locked us up, but at the same time words have freed us; we have found ourselves and reclaimed ourselves with words. The words we speak, the language we use and how we communicate is inherently political and intrinsically about power. WWAO is a raucous yet tender night-out where we can dive into these issues together.
