Find your Feet and Wake up to Walking!

The Ramblers Worcestershire Area Welcome to Walking event is to be held over the weekend of Saturday 2nd. June and Sunday 3rd. June at National Trust’s Hanbury Hall as part of the Ramblers “Walk About’ festival.

We welcome groups, families, couples and those on their own to try out our walks which will be guided by experienced Ramblers - we are offering free 3 and 5 mile walks both days in the glorious Worcestershire countryside.

The 5 mile walks start at 10.30 and 13.30 and the 3 mile walks start at 11.00 and 14.00 - just register at our gazebo in Hanbury Hall car park at least 15 minutes before the start of the walk.

NT members and non-members welcome The views are spectacular, the exercise is just what the doctor ordered and the company is great. We are hoping that we can show ‘new’ ramblers what a wonderful hobby walking is. The Ramblers helps everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protects the places we all love to walk. We are the only charity dedicated to looking after paths and green spaces, leading walks, opening up new places to explore and encouraging everyone to get outside and discover how walking boosts your health and your happiness.

JEREMY HARDY LIVE   UK Tour 2018

JEREMY HARDY LIVE  UK Tour 2018

“In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material” – THE GUARDIAN 

“A comic genius” – SANDI TOKSVIG

“He’s good but he’s only on the radio” – ALAN BENNETT 

Following a sellout tour last year, Jeremy Hardy hits the road in 2018 with his new show, which sees him at his politically astute best but paying more attention to the human condition. With Brexit, Trump and the world in general, he has plenty to talk about but who is the man behind the mirth.  What makes him tick? What keeps him awake at night? What does he fear, and hope for?

Jeremy is enjoying his fourth decade as a stand-up comedian. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 34 years to go. He’s managed to pack a fair bit into his career already though, what with being part of the furniture of BBC Radio 4 (At Home With The Hardys, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, and recently Jeremy Hardy Feels It), TV work such as Now Something Else with Rory Bremner, Blackadder Goes Forth, and Jack Dee’s Helpdesk, and films such as Hotel, How to Be (with Robert Pattinson), and Jeremy Hardy v the Israeli Army (in which he challenged the military occupation of the West Bank). He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper, and three books: When Did You Last See Your Father, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, and My Family and Other Strangers.

Back in 1988 Jeremy won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival, and in 1991 he bagged Best Live Act at the ITV Comedy Awards. Since then he has never stopped gigging, and there’s a good chance he’s performed in every town in the UK. Here’s a wee taste of a recent show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_AotzQAkIM

ED BYRNE AT HUNTINGDON HALL

ED BYRNE AT HUNTINGDON HALL

I originally intended to call the show, "I’ll Millennial You in a Minute", but my promoter considered the title, "off-puttingly baffling". That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way. Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

"Comedy’s Holy Grail. Go See!" Sunday Times

Recognised as one of the finest observational comics in the industry, Ed’s television credits are countless (provided you’re really bad at counting); Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and, most recently, he and Dara O Briain filmed the follow up to their Big Adventure show for BBC2 entitled Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay

"A show full of top–class observational humour... A great comedian making the simple sublime, Byrne gives his audience exactly what they want" EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS

"Superior stand up from the nerd next door" THE HERALD
