Come and see the show Clare presented to the staff of NASA - yes, THAT NASA!
Close up of Clare
A mathematician finds a gift from a god
Blacksmiths beat out the music of the spheres
And why are there turtles everywhere?
Where does myth meet science? Is it only in the middle of the night when we half wake and half sleep? In this timeless place of wonder and insight, time stretches and a fissure opens that builds a dream bridge between many worlds…
Performance storyteller Clare Murphy dances into this liminal space; merging myth, deities, science and a hefty amount of turtle, in a playful exploration of the beginnings of the universe.

Clare's in such demand that though I started trying to book her soon after she dropped in while staying with her friend and ours, Jo Blake Cave, one December evening in the first year of our existence, it's taken this long to get a date she could make to come here! Not to be missed!

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....
