About this event
"A mere ditch that shall be leaped" (Napoleon).
Twenty-one miles (as the gull flies) to France.
So near yet so far.
Flash-back to a golden age of bathing.
Channel fever grips the nation.
Our foolhardy romantic emerges from her 'modesty' hut to join the Channel swimmers.
Dollops of goose fat and a glint of foolhardy eccentricity.
Flash-forward, will it go swimmingly or will the tide turn?
Expect one woman, witty physical theatre and inventive use of props all from the depths of her bathing hut.
This is a gloriously absurd tribute to The Channel.
Presented by Sarah Corbett.
Starts: 7-30 pm
