Witness for the Prosecution

Agatha Christie, along with many of her fans, considered Witness for the Prosecution to be her best work for the stage. Based on a short story 'Traitor's Hands', written in 1925, it had a long run in 1953 (the period in which the play is set) at London's Winter Garden Theatre followed by an equally successful staging in New York. It has been filmed three timesand was recently revived in London. Despite its age, it is still a very ingenious courtroom thriller, retaining its suspense until virtually the last moments.

Light Up a Life 2021

St Margaret’s Hospice is inviting people across Somerset to come together and be part of this year’s Light up a Life campaign.

Traditionally, Light up a Life is the time when the hospice invites the local community to gather in churches across the county for a simple service of remembrance. But, after more people being able to access the service last year when they were forced to stream it, instead the hospice has now decided to keep the virtual format for 2021.

As well as the service in December, the hospice is inviting families across Somerset to share the names of their loved ones in remembrance and celebration. 

The St Margaret’s website is home to a virtual night sky where members of the community can dedicate a star in memory of a loved one and donate to the hospice.

There will also be a special Light Up a Life service which will be broadcast from the Bishop’s Chapel at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells on Sunday, December 12th at 4.00pm, available to watch via the hospice’s website.
