The Barn at Foxtail Lilly, 41 South Road, Oundle, PE8 4BP
Enjoy a quirky, charming and offbeat musical cabaret from vintage songstress and ukulele maestro, Tricity Vogue, in the intimate and informal surroundings of the barn at Foxtail Lilly. Expect an eclectic mix of much loved tunes as well as Tricity’s own cheeky originals, with amusing chat, laughter and the chance for audience participation.

Change of outdoor film: The year's smash hit, Beauty and the Beast, has just become available for outdoor screening, so we've taken the decision to give Oundle audiences the earliest opportunity to watch it at the Outdoor Cinema in place of Back to the Future.
Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, with Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nathan Mack, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson in supporting roles. It also has a brilliant soundtrack sung by the cast and Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, John Legend and Josh Groban.
Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside.
The bar will be stocked with local Nene Valley Brewery beers available for purchase as well as a range of alcoholic and soft drinks, or you are welcome to bring your own drinks and picnic under the stars while watching this great film.
Performance ends at approximately 11.50pm

Two outstanding young musicians, Oliver Wass (the first harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal, the Guildhall School of Music’s most prestigious prize) and Luba Tunnicliffe (First Prize winner in the 2016 St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition) join forces to play music by Bach, Bax, Britten and Tchaikovsky.
Instructions about where to meet will be sent to walkers nearer the time.
