Visit a Dolls House at The Rose, Kingston
A Dolls House – the Kingston ROSE theatre 9 September – 27 September
Post performance talk: Tuesday 16 September
By Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Peter Hall
In 1879, Ibsen’s new play stunned the world and provoked outrage. One critic compared it to the ‘dropping of a bomb into contemporary life’. Beautifully crafted and powerfully moving, no work better distils Ibsen’s genius than A Doll’s House.
The cast includes Catherine McCormack (The Land Girls, All My Sons), Finbar Lynch (Proof, Not About Nightingales), Anthony Howell (Foyle’s War), Christopher Ravenscroft (The Ruth Rendell Mysteries) and Susie Trayling (National Theatre, Heartbeat).

Blues, Funk ‘n Soul it up – at Ascot
The Robin Bibi Band at The Jagz Club & Restaurant, Ascot Sat 13th Sept
Robin Bibi is one of the UK’s top blues/rock guitarists and having paid his dues working with such names as Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Ben.E.King, The Pretty Things and Helen Shapiro, launched the Robin Bibi Band in 1996. The Band’s debut album ‘Blue Thrash Therapy’ was released a year later and quickly sold out leading to a recent re-release. Five albums on, Robin’s acoustic album ‘Fast Life Songs’ has also received critical acclaim and continues to sell well.
Blues, funk, soul, rock, reggae and jazz are all rolled together in The Robin Bibi Band’s own feel-good concoction. Above all, the Band’s aim is to give their audience a night to remember whilst guaranteeing the best British Blues Rock can offer in a tried and tested, exciting, spontaneous, power trio format.
Because of their widely known reputation with a highly entertaining stage presentation, the Robin Bibi Band are now one of the busiest bands round the Southern music venue circuit and have played most of the major Blues festivals in the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
The music is exuberant passionate, dynamic, exciting and fun! It’s music played straight from the heart, it will move your head, your heart and of course your feet!
