    November 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
    Loyd Lindsay Rooms, High St, Ardington, Wantage OX12 8PS, UK

    This Autumn, Farnham Maltings are touring the width and breadth of the country with their latest theatrical event "Brilliance": a 90 minute celebration of our ability to connect and find the light in a bright new world.

    From the company that brought you It’s A Wonderful Life, The Iranian Feast and Brave Folk, we now bring you Brilliance a show with music made especially for village halls.

    Made with live music and song, especially for village halls, this community feel good show promises to light a spark from the inside out.

    1948 and 1963, winter. Everyone is gathering in the village hall. Lightning has struck the hall rood. Mrs Atkinson has called the repairman - a man who can fix a creaking door, chimneys that smoke. And in he comes with his daughter, bright blue eyes full of brilliance, like an animal in from the woods.

    Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allow us to gather and sing long into the night.

    "An evening I'll never forget! Spellbinding, provoking and emotional!"

    Tickets available from: Karen Smith - Loyd Lindsay Rooms. Tel: 01235 832 240 and The Grocer Chef, Ardington. Also available via Eventbrite
