We’re delighted to announce that St Botolph’s Trunch & St Nicholas Swafield have become National Theatre Live venues – bringing the best of British theatre to our local screens!

With NT Live you’ll always have the best seat in the house. Whether you’re watching Kit Harington go to battle in Henry V, or Phoebe Waller-Bridge delivering her solo tour de force in Fleabag, you’ll be at the heart of the action.  You can watch a trailer here.

We’ll be kicking off the program on March 15th at 6:30pm in St Botolph’s Trunch with a performance of ‘Vanya’ captured live from The Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End.  Andrew Scott (Fleabag) excels in this one-man radical retelling of Anton Chekhov’s classic Uncle Vanya.

Exploring the kaleidoscope of human emotions; director Sam Yates and writer Stephen Simons (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time) delve into the connection between actor and audience.

The evening starts with an optional fish & chips supper, food orders taken separately on 01692 402624.  Please feel free to bring your own food or drinks!
