Ocean Theatre Company


 Ocean Theatre' recent  production, Legally Blonde,  performed at the LVS Ascot, from April 12th to 14th 2019, was yet another triumph.  


The Broadway hit musical LEGALLY BLONDE is based on the much-loved 2001 blockbuster movie of the same name. With a fun, upbeat score and a cast of quirky characters LEGALLY BLONDE  entertained everyone as it tells the story of Elle Woods, driven by love, setting out on a cross-country journey of determination and self-discovery in the hallowed halls of Harvard Law. With relevant themes and lively music we, the jury, found this musical ‘not to be missed!’ 

This high-energy show was written by Heather Hach with a catchy score with music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin. LEGALLY BLONDE the Musical was nominated for 7 Tony Awards and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical in London.

LEGALLY BLONDE the Musical takes you from the social whirl of California to Harvard's halls of justice with our heroine Elle, her Chihuahua, Bruiser and the unconventional beautician Paulette.

The current Ascot and Sunnings traffic chaos is an opportunity to find alternative routes which will reveal the charms of High Streets other than the main roads, says Colin Keating of Sapphire Estates.

Travelling around the Ascot area recently has been chaos. To say there are road works everywhere sounds like a bit of an exaggeration. But really there are - road works everywhere. It seems we must grin and bear it, while a cable is laid from Ascot substation to the new Longcross development.

The main problem is Ascot High Street. Recently, it was reduced to one lane, controlled by three- way traffic lights. A journey of half a mile to Ascot railway station could take forty minutes. People queued and fumed, and got very frustrated. Other roadworks compounded the problem.  And now Station Hill is closed altogether for a week, funnelling all the traffic down an already congested and accident-prone Ascot High Street and through traffic-calmed Sunninghill High Street ( though to be fair, official diversion notices lead traffic on down Blacknest Road). This could all be a taste of things to come-  if and when the massive housing developments in Ascot High Street and elsewhere start!

But what always puzzles me is this: There is another way!

Ascot Racecourse is basically a triangle. Three roads outline this triangle so you can treat it as a huge roundabout if you like. Then there are all the other roads that will ultimately get you around. I feel like asking; have you found 'New Mile Road' to Cheapside? Onwards to Windsor, Sunninghill and Dale, or the reverse.

At the end of March, the Cordes Hall saw 65 pupils, aged from 3 to 15, and 4 adults of the Vanessa Gardner Academy of Dance perform their beautiful interpretation of the Nutcracker ballet: Nutcracker, Clara’s Dream, Fritz’s Nightmare! From tap dancing soldiers, to modern dance evil forest creatures and the classical ballet Waltz of the Flowers, the dancers of all ages performed with enthusiasm and pride.

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals and InHealth celebrate 20th anniversary of Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Service

April 1st saw the 20th anniversary of the InHealth Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Service at St Peter's Hospital which was celebrated by staff and patients. 20 years ago, invasive cardiology procedures were not common practice in district hospitals, and there were many questions asked by commissioners about the need and safety of these types of procedures. After a successful presentation, it was agreed that St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey would be the first invasive cardiology centre in Surrey.

The service has developed and progressed over the years from a ground-breaking first joint partnership, from providing coronary angioplasty and simple pacing procedures to the expansive facility we have today - an all-inclusive, purpose built catheterisation suite encompassing a 10-bedded day ward and two fully equipped catheter laboratories with direct 24/7 ambulance access for heart attack patients. The InHealth Cardiac team is supported by Ashford St Peter’s Cardiac Physiologists and Cardiologists to deliver a seamless multidisciplinary team service.
