Events Update

EventsThe Dead Parrot Society are returning to the Bloated Mallard this Friday (19th April) for a night of comedy.

Tickets are £10 for the show that’s 8pm till midnight, hosted MC’d by Teddington’s Viv Groskop and professional rib-tickers will include:

  • Viv Groskop: “Viv is brilliant. But I still quite like Billy Connolly.” – Jo Brand
  • Evelyn Mok: “Evelyn Mok who charmed the crowd from the off” – The Velvet onion
  • Chris Gau: “I have genuinely never seen so much promise in a newcomer” – BBC Producer, New Comedy Awards
  • Darren Walsh: “A real crowd-pleaser, with originality and personality by the bucketload.” – Chortle
  • Dan Green: “Dangerously funny new comic with a sweet on stage persona that bites with bitterness” – The Age
  • Lindsay Sharman: “Michael McIntyre on a sugar overdose” – Three Weeks
  • Gerry Howell: “Surreal Rambling Brilliance” – TimeOut

This will be the last chance to catch the comedy night at the Bloated Mallard as it changes ownership and closes for refurbishment from Sunday. Current owners will be ensuring they go out with a bang starting with this comedy evening, then live music on Saturday night. From Sunday to Tuesday, all furniture and fixings will be sold so pop down to grab a bargain.

Venues of note in the fashion calendar are New York City, London, Milan, Paris and now Teddington! Haymarket have organised a Feel Good Fashion Night at the Royal Oak on Thursday 9th May 2013.

Catwalk, high-end and charity clothes will be on sale so why not come along, enjoy the evening, socialise and support this great charity and head home with some bargains too! There will also be a raffle drawn for thousands of pounds worth of prizes including audio systems, speakers, champagne and jewellery (top prize is a £1,750 hi-fi system!).

Proceeds from the evening will go Shooting Star Chase Hospice, doors open 7:30pm and the fashion show and make-overs start at 8:30pm with tickets at £5 or £10 for VIP experience that also includes front-row catwalk seats and a glass of prosecco. Thanks go to Haymarket for organising the show, Elements and Simply Me Boutique for hair and make-up.

Raffle tickets will be on sale from the Shooting Star Chase Teddington shop from Thursday 18th April, which will also take donations of clothes for the show & sale (the more high-end and fashionable, the better). If you drop some off on Thursday 18th, you can swap bags of donations marked ‘fashion night’ for one of their homemade cakes. If you have bought nice items but agonised over actually wearing them, they could be ideal for the evening!

After the sold-out success of last year’s wine tasting masterclass, The Wharf is to welcome back Master of Wine Adrian Garforth for another evening of wine tasting, education and fine food by the river. This time the theme will be a comparison between well known wines from traditional areas versus some more obscure, unknown grape varieties.

You don’t need to know a thing about wine to attend – you won’t be tested and the evening is very relaxed and friendly! Each course will be accompanied by two wines to compare and contrast and you’ll definitely leave being more knowledgeable about grape varieties.

The carefully selected fine wines from top estates in both the New and Old World have been expertly paired with an inspirational four course menu from The Wharf kitchen. The evening will take place on Friday 10th May 2013 (from 7pm) and the £55 price includes all tasting wine and four course meal.
