Monday 26th June

Louis de Bernieres & Ilone Antonius-Jones

Monday 26th June, 1pm - 2pm
Central Library, Albion Street
Louis de Bernieres
& Ilone Antonius-Jones


The internationally best-selling author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin provides unique lunchtime entertainment with flautist Ilone Antonious-Jones.

The Antonius Players have been working with Louis de Bernieres for two years. In collaboration, they have delighted audiences all over the UK with their unique blend of poetry and music, including a highly successful sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The Antonius Players started out as a flute trio and the flute still remains the central instrument.

However, they have also demonstrated their ability to branch out onto different instruments using their own arrangements. Louis has become a central member of the group, adding his mandolin and guitar skills.

An unmissable event. Includes light buffet.
'a unique and entertaining amalgam of music and verse � simply to be enjoyed!' Nick Scott

Young people from the Lakh Kushia Young Women's group who meet at Route One Young People's Resource Centre have been working with Hull Truck Theatre to produce a play exploring their cultural heritage. Other young women's groups in Hull have also been working on their own cultural films - a work in progress will also be shown. The final work will be used as a resource for Wilberforce 2007 Education Centre.

The Education team at Hull Truck Theatre run a Youth Theatre which performs regular productions such as the recent ONCE A CATHOLIC. The team also visits schools to work on issue-based themes as well as exploring styles and conventions in John Godber plays. In addition to this, Hull Truck classics are toured around schools, the most recent being a performance of TEECHERS.
