    While the Sun Shines

    On the eve of his wedding, the young Earl of Harpenden – Bobby to his friends – has offered his room to Joe, an American soldier he drunkenly met the night before. When Bobby’s fiancée Lady Elizabeth turns up, Joe makes a move, thinking she must be Bobby’s ex, the wonderful Mabel Crum. But a Free French lieutenant also has eyes for her... And to complicate matters, Bobby’s future father in law turns up too.

    London in the Blitz, and identities get confused: time to make hay...

    The first major London revival of this delectably charming comedy in decades. Rattigan’s greatest hit played for over 1,000 performances in the West End when it opened in 1943.

    Artistic Director Paul Miller directs following his phenomenally successful production of Rattigan's French Without Tears, which played two sold out runs at the OT, before going on a national tour.

    ★★★★★ “Rollickingly good fun” The Reviews Hub

    ★★★★★ “Delightful comedy” Essentially Surrey

    ★★★★ “comes up fresh as paint” The Guardian

    ★★★★ “A lot of laughs... Miller’s production is one of immense charm.” The Stage

    ★★★★ “So many laughs you might opt to see it twice.” London Theatre 1

    TCS Virtual performance; Lacrimosa, Mozart Requiem

    Unfortunately due to the general situation Teddington Choral Society had to cancel and postpone its Spring and Summer concerts and suspend its weekly rehearsals. But the choir has organized itself to allow the singers to continue practicing their repertoire and to maintain a strong connection.

    We have arranged a weekly project which gives the opportunity to the singers to sign up, record themselves and share their recordings so that we can create a virtual choir performance. 

    We have been extremely fortunate to have the support of our amazing IT specialist (Seamus, son of our Chairperson) who spent hours editing and mixing the final project. 

    We are also very thankful with the singers who have taken the courage to participate to these projects.

    We also had a very good feedback from the singers who did not participate but enjoyed listening and watching the performances.

    The Virtual Performance is a new entry in our range of activities and based on the members enthusiasm and the end results we will definitely continue experimenting it.

    Find here our virtual performance of Lacrimosa from the Mozart Requiem:

  • Lecture on The Bayeaux Tapestry

    Drinks from 7pm, AGM at 7.30pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.


    Commissioned by the Bishop of Bayeux who fought at Hastings and made by skilled English craftsmen, the Bayeux Tapestry is the last survivor of a vanished art form. Rupert presents a lively introduction to the tapestry – so much more than the story of Hastings – in which he unravels some of its mysteries, places it in the context of its age and firmly establishes it as a landmark in the history of Western art. With its lively illustrations of languid, party-loving, moustachioed Englishmen, of the cavalcades of noble huntsmen and of the snorting Norman cavalry poised to charge into battle, the tapestry is the next best thing to a moving picture from the time. 

    Speaker's Profile
    Rupert Willoughby is a prize-winning historian who specialises in the domestic and social life of the past. He read History at the University of London and is the author of the best-selling Life in Medieval England, of guides to castles owned by English Heritage and Hampshire County Council, and of a series of popular histories of places, including Chawton: Jane Austen’s Village and Basingstoke and its Contribution to World Culture. He contributes regular obituaries to The Times and The Daily Telegraph, writes privately-commissioned histories of houses, and is an experienced lecturer – and occasional broadcaster – on a broad range of topics, with a particular interest in architecture, interior decoration and costume.

    Mark Thomas - Serious Organised Criminal Livestream

    A livestream of Mark Thomas' Sony Award winning show.

    Mark’s true story of cake icing as a political weapon, of demonstrations to Defend Surrealism, and of getting to like the Police. Mark turns an 18-month battle over Parliament Square and the right to demonstrate into a bizarrely brilliant stand up show. This is how Mark fought the law… with the law’s permission.

     It’s a laugh-out-loud funny world inhabited by anarchists, goths and artists, in which Mark becomes a Guinness World Record holder, organises 2,500 protests in one day and changes the law in the process. Oh, an he won a Sony Award for the show too.

    20% from every ticket sold will be donated to the Save The Landmark Appeal.

    Henry VIII’s Richmond: Stained Glass Windows - family workshop

    Tuesday 28 to Friday 31 July 2020

    Discover what life was like in Tudor Richmond and how different it is from today, by looking at Museum objects and portraits of people who used to live on what would become Queen’s Road. Be inspired by the stained glass from Richmond Palace and make your own replica to take home and decorate your window with.

    Workshops are £5.50 per child. Booking is essential as places are limited

    Follow this link to book:

    Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the Museum’s handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area and develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities.

    Our workshops are led by our Learning Officer, Vicky, who has over ten years of experience of working with families and has an Enhanced DBS check.

    Workshops are primarily aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, and adults are encouraged to get stuck in too!

    Younger siblings (under 5s) are welcome to join in and we can provide simple craft and colouring materials for them during the workshop instead of the main craft resources. as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials.

    Children aged 11 and over are also welcome to join in, and we can make the activities more challenging for them. They would need to have a paid for place booked for them as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials used during the workshop.
