The National Trust Fan Club one-woman show comes to the South Holland Centre in Spalding
Helen Wood is on a one-woman quest to visit every National Trust property and become the NT’s biggest super-fan.
Her unique stage show, The National Trust Fan Club, stormed the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and comes to the South Holland Centre in Spalding on Thursday, February 27 at 7.30pm.
It follows hot on the heels of Helen’s previous sell-out hit The OS Map Fan Club.
Using a combination of personal stories, historical anecdotes, poetry, sketches, selfies and scones the comedian will take the audience on a funny whirlwind tour of National Trust properties and outdoor spaces around Britain.
And it’s packed to the brim with Gore-Tex, cream teas, and a loyal canine assistant (when NT rules allow).
Helen’s bio states that she started performing and trying to make people laugh at a very early age.
She says: “I love to play larger than life comic characters. Favourites have included Mrs Bennett in Pride and Prejudice, Mrs Sparsit in Hard Times and Captain Hook in Peter Pan, for which I had to learn to stage fight as well as say “ooh arr” a lot.
“With Freshwater Theatre Company I played Helena and Snug on a tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Italian schools and numerous, historical characters for performances in the UK.
“I’ve tried my hand at a variety of comic performance styles including stand-up comedy, performance poetry and clowning.”
