Grow up Grandad, 18th October 2017 to 21st October 2017, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (10.2 miles)
Grandparents! Look past the title of the play. This is an inter-generational story that deals with love and loss, hope and sadness as the relationship between Poppy and her Grandad is first thrown together and eventually torn apart. Poppy is 11, has attitude, but dreams of dancing in Blackpool. Ken is something of a hermit, a man living in the past with no television, no computer and no patience. While their relationship is volatile, it's also very funny and strewn with moments of real tenderness. This play is provocative, touching and not at all predictable! A UK mainland amateur premiere. Contains mildly offensive language. Saturday matinee at 2.30pm
Tickets: ���£13, ���£11 (65+), ���£10 (student)

Local Clubs

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (8.4 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
