Noel Coward – He’s Back!

Noel Coward was a precocious 15 year old would–be theatrical when he paid his first visit to Hambleton Hall as the guest of Eva Astley-Cooper. At the time he had had minimal exposure to the upper-class manners and wit of which Mrs Cooper was a brilliant exponent, and she provided him with many ideas for his later work.

I am excited by the prospect of “John Standing sings Noel Coward” to be performed in our drawing room (on July 26th / 27th & 28th) where the young Noel so often amused the house guests some 80 years ago.

John Standing is a distinguished actor from a great theatrical family. His theatrical career includes a number of roles in Noel Coward plays in the West End and on Broadway and earlier this year he performed his Noel Coward show to considerable acclaim in London at Bellamy’s and Pizza on the Park.

See you there!
