The Badapple Theatre Company present THE FROZEN ROMAN, a new comedy by Kate Bramley with songs & music by Jez Lowe based on an original idea by Jez Lowe. Design by Catherine Dawn, at Beaumont Parish Hall on Saturday 29th October starting at 7.30pm. 2022 marks the 1900th anniversary of the building of Hadrian's Hall on which the hall sits.

They came, they saw, they built a wall…. they went away again. Or did they? A clandestine meeting at the Phoenix pub gets heated, as the villagers rack their brains for new ways to fight the imminent housing development that threatens village life as they know it. The discovery of an ancient Roman site under foot may just throw them a lifeline if they can somehow authenticate their mysterious findings. But things aren’t always what they seem! Expect a double dose of comedy as the situation goes ”ballisticus maximus” in this brand new original comedy from Kate Bramley and Badapple Theatre. 

 Adults £12, concessions £10, under 16’s £6. Recommended age:10+.Bar, raffle. Tickets from Harold on 575010, Bryony 576403 or Michelle 576332..

The scheme offers a range of energy efficiency improvements such as solid wall and cavity wall insulation, heat pumps, solar panels, underfloor insulation and first-time double glazing. The grant is even available for private landlords to apply for qualifying tenants with up to £5,000 of funding available.

Grants for Students Carlisle Educational Charity (registration No.509357) may be able to help with grants to students aged under 25 on 1st October 2021.

To apply you:

- must be aged under 25 on 1st October 2021

- must be a resident (or your parents are residents) of Carlisle

- must be:

- due to attend a full time course this autumn at a university or institution of further education; or

- a graduate undertaking, or wishing to undertake, higher studies or obtain professional qualifications; or

- a student who has to travel in this country or abroad as part of their course (not travel to and from College/University).

When considering applications, the Trustees will take into account the financial circumstances of parents and the extent to which they have the financial means to support their children. The Charity invites applications from any students that fit the criteria above. However the number of applications that the Trustees are able to support is limited. The Trustees will give priority to students from low-income families. This has, in the past, been regarded as families with a joint income of £21,000 and under. Students with a joint family income above this level are still invited to apply but should be aware that, should sufficient applications be received from families in the low income bracket, it is unlikely that they will receive support. Application forms can be downloaded from the City Council’s website: http://www.carlisle.gov.uk/Council/More-about-the-Council/Carlisle-Educational-Charity and emailed to cec@carlisle.gov.uk Closing date 30th September 2022.
