For Remembrance Sunday. Commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, Nicholas Collett brings “Spitfire Solo” to the Grove.

Written and performed by Nicholas Collett

Co-devised and directed by Gavin Robertson

Executive Producer Tim Marriott

Since 2010 the show has toured the UK, the USA and Australia and has returned from this year’s Adelaide Fringe with a haul of 5-star reviews.

The show is supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund.

June 2000 - for eighty-year old Peter Walker, ex-Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin.

As he re-lives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far!

Personal, charming, funny and inventive, ‘Spitfire Solo’ blends theatre, music and film.
