Christmas Readings at Rock Road Library

Cambridgeshire actor Geoff Hales entertained a packed Rock Road Library when he visited earlier this year, at the invitation of the Friends of Rock Road Library. He performed a one-man show of dramatised readings from Charles Dickens’ novels.

2012 is Dickens’s bicentenary, so it is fitting that Geoff will be returning next month (13th December). He will be doing a variety of Christmas readings from Dickens as well as other authors.

The show starts at 8 p.m. after a welcome drink.  There is no fixed charge but the Friends invite the audience to donate towards their funds, which go back into events such as this.

Geoff Hales read English at Cambridge, went away and came back! He runs his own theatre company, ‘Travelling Theatre’, which performs one-man shows about great writers. He has appeared all over England and in Prague, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Germany and Switzerland.

The date is Thursday 13th December, time 8 p.m. Last time people were arriving half an hour early and it was standing room only, so I wouldn’t leave it till the last minute.
