A THOUGHT-provoking evening of theatre and song is promised at the ‘Big Night Out’ show coming to Dorchester.

Somerset drama group Oddments Theatre has teamed up with award-winning singer and songwriter Paul Field to put on the event at the United Church in the county town from 7.30pm on Thursday, June 12.

Director and founder of Oddments Barry Boyton said: “I’m really excited to be able to put on ‘The Big Night Out’ with such a big artist here in Dorchester.

“I’m a huge fan of Paul’s work - I’ve seen him at numerous festivals and I’ve even gone back a second night to hear his whole set again.”

He added: “The night is not only a great way for us to reach out to the local community, but it’s a wonderful opportunity for Oddments to expand our prisons and schools work.

“If we can raise more funds, then we can reach more people.”
