RH this week…


August, that dead time when it feels like the whole world has decamped to Province, or failing that Bognor.  Still, a few events locally to tickle your fancy.

Including, URINE TOWN at the Harlequin from Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th.  YESPA (formerly ESOS) present a satirical comedy about… climate change. Yes really! The title does not really do this smash hit musical comedy justice. Based in the not too distant future where water is so scarce that our glorious politicians have been forced to outlaw private bathrooms, if you can’t afford to pay to pee, you’re in trouble. Timely and the talented bunch of young actors from around RH always put on a good show.

Get your tickets quick. Limited availability and break a leg YESPA.

Our fabulous local libraries Horley, Mertham, Reigate, Redhill and others have numerous activities to keep kids and adults occupied during the looong summer holidays.  The annual summer reading challenge is up and running. Programme below for activities some are bookable, others you can just turn up.

If you fancy some live music. The Cage, the live music venue in Reigate always has a packed and varied programme. This weekend’s entertainment includes Justin Howl on Friday 9th at 9pm. Justin hails from Chicago, he plays slide guitar and harmonica and will howl his original blues and Americana tunes. It will be a good foot stomping session. See for yourselves.

Saturday 10th Alias a live covers band will take the stage, playing tunes from the Blues Brothers via Fleetwood Mac to Billy Joel and Madness and many more. Take a visit if you want to get up and move your dancing feet.

The Yard at Reigate Station and its eclectic mix of local bands, performers and artists is a rather wonderful community space. Have you heard about it? Do keep up to date with their many events, not only live music but book groups, walks and a monthly tool repair café. Events are usually BYOB and the web link is here:


The next Friday night sessions on the 16th have David Fisher on at 7pm and Too Far Gone at 8pm. Please do check out the Yard if you haven’t already done so.

On a final note, not an event as such. But the brilliant Belfry Centre, Redhill have set up a Ping Pong Parlour in the units where Top Shop used to be. An innovative idea. The parlour is heaving with kids, teenagers, hipsters and grandparents taking part in the Ping Pong Challenge. @belfryshopping. @ping-tweets.
