Terrie is a remarkable performer whose energy and superb teaching have enriched the Feast of Fools from the start, and without whom we'd not be the same club, so here's a great chance to see her performing in her own right, with the added bonus of bringing the first double act of music and story to us.

Tickets available online here and on the door £9 and £7 (concs)
Please note that we absorb most of the booking charge online, so they're more or less the same price. If you book in advance it really helps us to know how many to expect!

Where we Meet

Delapre Abbey is the lovely place so many Northamptonians tend to forget about, tucked away off the London Road in Delapre Park.
From February 2018, we've met mainly in the Billiards Room or the Dining Room in the main building. (Follow signs to "Cafe" and you'll get there!) And if you came there in our early days in the Carriage House you'll appreciate the major step up in comfort of this venue!
The whole setting is a gorgeous site, and it belongs to our town, so it's great to be there now, as it's recently had a mighty refurbishment. Details are at and on their Facebook page

Details of how to locate it are on our map page
Once you're at the car park, follow the new path to the right, through the gate, leading across the front of the building, and you should see signs to the Cafe. It does get a bit dark round the corner of the building!
There's also a bus stop at the end of the drive. It's nearly 1/4 mile from the road, if you're walking. ..It's still 1/4 mile if you're not....
