David Harper’s Romp With The Georgians

David Harper’s ‘A Romp With The Georgians’ is coming to theatres around the UK in 2020.

The show takes a funny look at life during the period from 1714-1830. A time in Britain of growth (eg empire) discoveries (eg Australia) inventions (eg roller skates) and shocking tales (eg electrified beds!).

Known for his brightly coloured trousers, David Harper is a BBC TV antiques presenter and historian – he’s always had a fascination with how the Georgians lived, loved and entertained themselves…from the strange pets they kept, their love of drinking (tea and gin in particular!) gambling addictions, medical remedies, we could learn from today! smugglers, tax avoiders and dodgy politicians.

The show will recall an age of lavish and dangerous fashions, terrible jobs, strange events, outrageous characters and dastardly historical stories our history teachers didn’t tell us!

There’s a book to go with the show too, they’ll be free giveaways, the odd competition and a chance to ask questions throughout…the audience is guaranteed to learn something new, be shocked, surprised or laugh at just how similar the Georgians really were to us!

David might even spread a bit of gossip and tell the odd tale from the world of TV!

“The Blues Brothers Set is a show in itself, the highlights of which are Ritchie Hicks and Rich Alcock’s superbly energetic performances in the title roles.” AUDIENCE MEMBER

“The band were so tight and the sound they produce would suggest a much larger outfit than the seven in number they are. You guys and the gals have a gem of a show there, professional artistry at its very best.” AUDIENCE MEMBER

“Saw these guys at The Hazlitt last night – awesome. As a die-hard Commitments nut I loved every second. Great stuff. Blues Brothers incredible also.” AUDIENCE MEMBER

Nosferatu (with live score)

A Symphony of Horrors

A silent masterpiece with a brand-new live score

Nosferatu (1922) is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre. Notable as the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting and unforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilled cinema goers nearly 100 years ago.

Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screening of the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend of electronic and acoustic instruments performed live by the composer and, combined with FW Murnau’s iconic images, makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience.

The Composer

Born into a musical family in Coventry, Chris Green began playing guitar at the age of eight and piano from the age of nine, and plays most things with fretted strings or keys. Largely self-taught, he’s worked in a variety of musical genres including folk, theatre and early music. He’s a regular musician at Shakespeare’s Globe and was also one of the musicians on BBC’s Poldark, appearing in series 1 and 2.

He also writes and composes, having adapted The Wind in the Willows (2017) for GreenMatthews as well as A Christmas Carol: In Concert (2018), which London Theatre Reviews described as “A delightful show… a lively retelling”

In 2018, he released his first solo album Switched-On Playford, which fuses 17th-century dance music with electronica, using a blend of early instruments, synths and loops. It was described by fRoots as “bloody brilliant…. an exquisitely-rendered and endlessly satisfying piece of work.”
