A Different Drum

Riding Lights are bringing their tremendous theatre to Central once again at 7.30pm this coming Saturday, 2nd November, to finish the national tour of ‘A Different Drum’.

small stories to change a troubled world

In the blood of a flea, wrapped in a bundle of French silk, the plague arrives in the Derbyshire village of Eyam. With it comes a devastating decision. As the entire community chooses the bold path of sacrifice… they begin to march to the sound of a different drum.

Beginning in the 17th century the play follows a thread through history to the present day, picking up accounts of other men and women who dare to break the boundaries of self-interest. Beating with a heart of resistance and selflessness these are stories of individuals who set out in hope and discover their potential for remarkable love in action.

Full of life and colourful music, a different drum imagines how different the world could be if we responded unswervingly to the golden rule – ‘do unto others as you would have them do to you.’

Tickets are available and you can buy them via the Riding Lights website.  You can also buy tickets by phoning the Riding Lights box office on (01904) 613000 – which avoids the transaction charge applied for booking online.
