Immerse yourself in the Tour de France and a wedding at Phoenix shows

By Post in Events

TWO IMMERSIVE productions – about cycling, and about getting married – are the latest intriguing offerings by The Phoenix Theatre and Arts Centre.

Ventoux rides into the Bordon venue on Thursday, May 25, at 8pm, following sell-out performances around the country.

Performed with road bikes, real race commentary and stunning film footage, it captures atmospherically the titan clash between cyclists Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani as they climbed Mont Ventoux in 2000, one of the most gruelling points on the Tour de France.

2Magpies Theatre recreate the 60-minute conflict with all the benefit of hindsight, and with the cyclists’ careers before and after that iconic race charted.

Tickets are £12, £10 concessions.

Audiences are invited too to a summer wedding at St Matthew’s Church in Blackmoor on June 2, at 2pm. The award-winning Theatre Exchange brings the family-friendly Our June’s Wedding to the church with its actual vicar, Rev Dominic Clark, playing himself.

Children can throw confetti, mum can bring out her best hat, and there will be cake of course, as well as a large serving of drama, on June’s big day.
