News about the cornerHOUSE autumn season !

A great run of staged events :

  •  Club Roguesque offers mature music in a specially devised club setting. Sultry singers and a knowing MC make for a hot evening. The show runs from 21 to 24 September. A few tickets remain for some nights
  • The Times described Barbara Nice as “ a hybrid between Victoria Wood and Mrs Merton “ and we are delighted to welcome Barbara in her show Hiya & Higher as a comedy special on Friday 30 September
  • Bymoonlight is the company presenting East for one night only on Saturday 1 October. This particular production of Steven Berkoff’s famous play has already had acclaimed runs at Kingston’s Rose and the Wimbledon Theatre. Lots of familiar cornerHOUSE faces involved. This will be a n extremely important and popular night. [ Update – all tickets reserved; returns only ]
  • Little Sister Blue is an acclaimed local musical force which has entranced audiences at the cornerHOUSE. They return on Saturday 15 October for a full evening, bringing with them friends to make for a very full programme of relaxed and enjoyable music.
  • Jack The Ripper is the latest vehicle chosen by cornerHOUSE regulars Upstage for their own brand of drama. Running from 26 to 29 October the company will bring the macabre tale to life in Douglas Road.

Free events

We are holding a gala on 6 October for Ashley Richardson’s new exhibition at the cornerHOUSE. Come and meet the artist, see the works, have a drink and a chat. A free event, including a free drink. The exhibition will be up from 1st to 29th October and can be seen at any time that the cornerHOUSE is open.


The popular bar night series continues on 14 October with live music, the ever popular book exchange, inexpensive drinks and great company. You are very welcome.

Updates on two cornerHOUSE traditions :

  •  the annual canvas exhibition and competition will be culminating in January, so now is the time to get your artists smocks on and create a master-piece. As ever , canvases in the required size are available at any cH event.
  • Scripts for the One Act Play festival, to be staged next April, are now being actively sought. The deadline is 30 October, so get writing now !

 Situation Vacant

You’ll be aware that everything at the cornerHOUSE happens because a team of volunteers are working hard behind the scenes to make the place happen. We are approaching a serious gap in our volunteer strength as our treasurer, Anna MacCafferty, has to stand down to attend to a major project for another voluntary organisations. From 1st January we will have no one to manage our accounts, balance our books and supervise our cash. We are therefore very keen to hear from anyone who can offer us help in this area. Anna has said that she is very happy to sit alongside anyone who volunteers to show them the ropes and provide a comprehensive hand-over.
