    BARNABY RUDGE

    We're delighted to announce that Fairlie Village Hall has been included in the Ayrshire Rural Touring Network set up by The Gaiety, Ayr with funding from Ayrshire LEADER.  The project aims to take drama, music and comedy performances to small, rural venues.


     

    On Thursday, 19th October, Fairlie Village Hall will host the Northumberland Theatre Company's Gothic adaptation of "Barnaby Rudge" by Charles Dickens.  Set against the backdrop of the Gordon Riots of 1780, it's a story of mystery and suspense which begins with an unsolved double murder, goes on to involve conspiracy, blackmail, abduction and retribution, and features Grip, a talking raven.  Through the course of the play, fathers and sons become opposed, apprentices plot against their masters and there are violent clashes on the streets.  And, as London erupts into riot, Barnaby Rudge struggles to escape the course of his own past.

    With its high drama, strange secrets and ghostly doublings, "Barnaby Rudge" is a powerful blend of historical realism and grotesque melodrama.  Told through Stewart Howson's unique interpretation, this will be NTC at its physical and Gothic best.

    125th ANNIVERSARY

    Fairlie Village Hall was gifted to the people of Fairlie by the Rt. Hon Charles Stuart Parker in memory of his sister Margaret.  We've retrieved pictures of both from the loft, had them cleaned up, and they've been rehung in the Main Hall.   To commemorate the anniversary, we're making some improvements to the Hall and we're planning a week-long series of events.  Details of these events, and updates on planned improvements, will be posted here when finalised.
