Saturday 19th October 2019 18:30A Turbulent Priest

A TURBULENT PRIEST

850 years after his murder in Canterbury Becket is coming back to Otford – a place where it’s said he particularly enjoyed staying while Archbishop (1162-1170) in spite of the taste of the water and the songs of its nightingales which disturbed his devotions!

“A Turbulent Priest” is a musical by James Cary and James Sherwood retelling the medieval bromance in sketch & song between Henry and Becket that ended in more than tears! The two-man show is both funny and thought-provoking. It illustrates what can happen when the worlds of political power and Christian faith collide. The show lasts 1 hour 45 minutes with a short interval and will be followed by wine and canapés

Tickets are £12 (main aisle) and £8 (side aisle) and may be purchased online or from the box office: 01959 524304

Please note that “Side aisle” tickets have a restricted view, but the performance is also projected on a big screen.

19:30"Legacy of a Dictator" a talk by Graham Perolls

“Legacy of a dictator” talk by Graham Perolls

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the collapse of the Ceausescu regime in Romania our Founder, Graham Perolls, will be giving a presentation called “Legacy of a Dictator” at St Bartholomew’s Church Centre in Otford on Wednesday 30th October at 7.30pm.

He will be describing the terrible and long lasting impact that Nicolae Ceausescu had on Romania and its people. He will also talk about his own personal journey – how witnessing the appalling conditions in a Romanian state hospital led him to set up Hospices of Hope and introduce hospice care into Romania.

The regime cast long shadows over the country but despite the years of oppression. Graham met a group of people who were determined to improve things for people facing terminal illness in Romania. The talk will describe the challenges he and his team faced introducing palliative care into a country that had become accustomed to ignoring the sick.

Tickets for the event cost £10 per person and include cheese and wine. They can be booked through the charity’s website, by email or by phoning us on 01959 525110.
