Bells of Turvey overview

TATS presents ‘Bells of Turvey’
15 to 18 November 2017

November sees TATS perform the world premiere of ‘Bells of Turvey’.

Follow the fortunes of the Bell family against the backdrop of Turvey village life in the 1850s. Based on the memoirs of Joseph Bell, the play paints a vivid picture of a rural community, from gossipy lacemakers and agricultural labourers to radical shoemakers and the influential Higgins family. Woven together with songs and traditional music, this is a home-grown production, written by Poppy Hollman, with music by Tim Brewster.

Members and friends rallied round to give her a rousing send-off by staging ‘Su Jenkins – this is your TATS life’, after the final performance, where current Treasurer, Simon Evans played host and members dressed up as some of the key characters Su had played in her time with TATS.

Su and husband Steve are moving to Devon and all at TATS, will miss them greatly and wish them well in their new life.

The Vicar of Dibley

The final performance is over, the set has been dismantled and calm arrives back to Turvey Village hall after another tremendously successful TATS show. Playing to capacity audiences, this time they set their sights at ‘The Vicar of Dibley’, a comedy based on the popular 1990s TV sitcom starring Dawn French.

you can call me alice…….coz thats my name!

Audience reaction is the best way to gauge success and there have been many many plaudits from the packed houses this week many of whom say they laughed til they cried, whilst others described the quality of characterisation from the TV show from the whole cast as simply stunning.

This TATS production was directed by Deborah Evans.
