GUEST EDITOR EMILY SLACK – HUMPHREY: TOP 5 CHOICES FOR FEBRUARY
Each month IDEA1 invites a guest editor to choose their top five events for the month; this month was the turn of Emily Sack – Humphrey, Performing Arts student at University Centre Peterborough.
Currently in her final year of the course, Emily is a keen physical theatre/movement artist with a love for Performance and Live art, and all things pretty unique! Emily’s creative and innovative scope is forever evolving, and she hopes that these top picks can assist yours!
So, we’ve all made it through the month of January, which feels like a year in itself! Hoorahhhhh! Now to tackle February!

TUESDAY 12TH FEBRUARY – 11:00 AM

With a star-studded cast this is certainly a feast for the eyes, and not to be missed! With the likes of Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Nicholas Hoult, audiences are really in for an experience; more so from the comfort and delightful energy that the Key Theatre provides its audiences. A period drama based on the eighteenth century, exploring the life of frail Queen Anne and an introduction to a new servant, Abigail, and all her endeavour’s to return to her aristocratic roots. Will all be, as it seems? Click here to find out more.
WEDNESDAY 13TH FEBRUARY – 7:30PM Ends Friday 15th February
Tickets £11 – £25
This event is certainly one not to be missed! Produced and performed by Peterborough’s very own Gearbox Theatre Company, they introduce audiences to a combination of witty, comedic Shakespearean language, an indulge into the cathedrals aesthetics and some great music!
All this, wrapped up in their take of Twelfth Night. Music truly is the food of love, and if you are a true melodic lover, this is the event for you!
This Shakespearean comedic adaption takes on ‘love and marriage, laughter, mischief and cross-dressing. A sixties skiffle band harmonises with a cathedral organ to create the original and somewhat nostalgic soundtrack’. Get yourselves to Peterborough Cathedral on the 13th! Find out more here.
PETERBOROUGH ARTS CINEMA: LET THE SUNSHINE IN
THURSDAY 14TH FEBRUARY – 7:30PM
John Clare Theatre
It’s Valentine’s Day and what better way to spend it then with your better half, or a group of friends at the Peterborough Arts Cinema, watching a romantic film? Couldn’t think of anything better.
Let The Sunshine In, following Isabelle, a middle-aged Parisian artist and divorced mother, as she looks for love and meets different characters. As the hopeless romantic take on this personal journey, the different hearts she meets provides the artist with many emotional contradictions. Will she find what she’s looking for?
Why not take a trip to watch? With the person you were always looking for! Full info here.

WEDNESDAY 27TH FEBRUARY – 7:30PM
METAL, Chauffeurs Cottage
Virginia Woolf leads us on a transformative journey through liberating powers of the mind. This is the first Feminist book club of the year, and with a piece of writing as significant and emotive, what a start that is.
The book that will be discussed is Liberty, an exploration and understanding as to why women were barred from writing and the pursuit taken to break through that wall, stopping creative and talented female writers from speaking truths, and revelations.
This meeting is free, for everyone and all are welcomed to join us. Find out more here.
