Watermill presents “Nesting” by Ellen Robertson

Linda is a self-confessed ‘collector’. She has all the necessities – broken umbrellas to match any outfit, unopened Amazon parcels delivered in 2012, shoes that don’t fit but were a bargain at 75 percent off and trainers because, one day, she will definitely take up running. To add to her collection there is Toby, an affectionately named rat who has taken up residence in her home.

With the arrival of Jonathan, a man who can’t sleep if the sponge is in the wrong place by the kitchen sink, comes a more life-changing situation than Linda could ever have imagined. The journey that follows is one of love, loss and an infatuation with Stevie Wonder memorabilia.

A poignant new play by Ellen Robertson, Nesting is a funny and moving look at compulsive behaviour and finding love in the most unlikely of places.

Ashampstead Theatre Club

atc-logoThe ATC was formed with the idea of getting together groups of like-minded people to go together to theatres, cinemas, museums, exhibitions and gardens.  The members attend a social evening once a year, when they choose where they’d like to go, and the outings are hosted by individual members.  Travel is often by coach.

Recent outings have been to The Royal Society, The National Theatre (Amadeus), the Royal Academy (Monet Exhibition), Kew Gardens, two Cotswold gardens, the Imperial War Museum, and the Old Vic (High Society), along with numerous visits to the New Theatre, Oxford (plays, ballet, opera etc.) and the Watermill Theatre, Newbury.

There is no annual subscription, just a one-off, lifetime payment of £10, and membership is open to anyone who lives, has lived, or works in Ashampstead.

New members are always welcome.

If you would like to join, please contact Mary Calvert on 01635 578591 or

The site is currently undergoing some work to upgrade it. This will take a few days and I hope to get the full site back on line early w/c 23/1/17.

In the meantime some parts of the site are still visible whilst others are temporarily unavailable. Don’t worry we haven’t lost any documents or pictures they’re in storage until we get back on-line.

Many thanks and apologies for any inconvenience.

Rob Barker
