Coming Soon


Tuesday 10th July


Nell Phoenix capivated us last autumn with her tales from Tricksterland.  The Guest House is pleased to announce she is returning to lead us through an old familiar tale in an unfamiliar way for our July fundraiser with a fish and chip supper at the Newhaven Life Boat Station.

The fairy tale world is littered with girls who are lost or mislaid, and very few are as innocent as you might first imagine. Nell Phoenix strays from the path in search of young, and not so young, women who have played in the woods, forgotten the rules, and should have at least had an inkling, that something was likely to go horribly wrong.Little Red Riding Hood July 18

Guaranteed to be darkly humorous and seriously playful.
Please book your tickets in advance and let us know if you want a fish and chip supper.  Tickets £10.  Optional fish supper £4.50.
