Outdoors, there’s theatrical magic from leading French theatre company Le G. Bistaki, who bring their  bewitching and otherworldly Bel Horizon (6 August) to Greenham Common.

In September, experience  the shows developed in 101 Outdoor Arts: National Centre for Arts in Public Space, Corn Exchange’s very  own creation hub, in Made at 101 (18 September), as The Clay Connection & Supple Productions present Lives of Clay, which features thrilling classical Indian dance, live ceramics, original music and half a  ton of clay, alongside Alleyne Dance with Bonded, which explores human dependency through twin sisters.

Plested Brown and Wilsher return to Corn Exchange for a fourth year with hilarious pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk (25 November – 31 December).

Christmas will also see Festival of Light (11 December) as Newbury town centre transforms into a twinkling winter wonderland with hundreds of lanterns made by  families, schools and community groups, bringing the local community together.

The autumn season will also see exciting one-night-only performances of dance, music, talks and comedy including Magic of Motown (17 September), Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Sofie Hagen (21 September), Ballet Cymru’s Dream (11 October). The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show (15 – 16 October), Milton Jones (26 October), The Dark (29 October) and The Crown Ballet’s The Nutcracker (9 November).
