The Foundry Group return to The Silver Social following the success of their ‘Ministry of Biscuits’ tour in 2018!

This year is the centenary of one of the greatest moments of aviation history and a truly British first – the first ever non-stop flight across the Atlantic, completed by British aviators Capt John Alcock and navigator Lt. Arthur Brown and to mark the occasion the nail-biting, side-splitting true story of this daredevil flight has been turned into a rip roaring play and is set to tour Breckland rural venues.

‘Those Magnificent Men’, by acclaimed writing duo Mitchell & Nixon, tells the story of the intrepid duo who made the first non-stop transatlantic flight in a modified First World War Vickers Vimy bomber, flying not only through dense fog, sleet, snow and hail – sometimes upside down – from Canada to Ireland.
Starring Radio 4 regular David Mounfield (‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show’) and writer/performer Brian Mitchell (‘The Ministry of Biscuits’), they will endeavour to tell the epic tale with just cardboard, two stools and some left-over props!

The show will tour in Ashill, Harling, Attleborough, Shipdham and Necton from 3-7 June 2019. Tickets are just £5 and include tea and cake!
