Serving up a Persian feast at Spring Bank

Feast your eyes on the latest production at Spring Bank Arts as it hosts an evening of traditional Persian food, song and dancing set in modern-day Tehran.

The Farnham Maltings Theatre show ‘Iranian Feast’ comes to the Spring Bank venue in New Mills on Friday October 18, at 7.30pm, as part of the new Live and Local season.

Live & Local helps voluntary groups choose and promote high-quality professional performances for their local community venue.

Philip Kendall, Chairman of Spring Bank Arts, said: “Audiences should grasp the opportunity of seeing entertainment at this level without having to travel out of town.”

Part thriller, part cookery lesson, Iranian Feast is a story of a family working out how life will be in the future; a story that is surprising, uplifting and a celebration of being alive. Going into the pot are fresh herbs, spices, sweet vegetables and Eli’s mother’s secret ingredient.

The Iranian Feast comes from the Farnham Maltings, a small creative arts centre in Surrey which has a knack for spotting plays with great stories that will work well at community venues.

They always cast them with actors who are hugely believable in their roles and direct them sensitively and expertly to produce superb theatre that will leave audiences with a taste for more.

Tickets, priced £10 or £8 (concessions), are available from Spring Bank Arts or High Street Books, New Mills. For more information, call 01663 308202 or visit

There will be a licensed bar to accompany the show.
