AUTUMN is the season for entertainment as a series of events sponsored by your roaring Reporter kicks off at a town centre theatre, writes Jason Goodyer.

The Reporter is bringing a packed schedule of more than 20 show events to the Woodville Halls, Gravesend, which includes the best in comedy, dance and light entertainment.

Kent Company Comedy Inc is to bring award winning comedienne and star of BBC's Red Dwarf, Hattie Hayridge and Fist of Fun and This Morning With Richard and Not Judy star Richard Herring to the Woodville Halls in Gravesend.

Hattie will be appearing on Tuesday, October 21 and Richard will be appearing on Tuesday, November 25. Both shows run from 8 to 10pm and tickets are £10 each.

The Big Ballet Company (pictured above) is due to appear at the Woodville Halls for the second year running on October 17, as part of their Size Does Matter tour.

Hailing from the mountains of Russia, all members of the group have to meet a minimum requirement of 100 kilos.

Principle dancer Ekatarina Yurkova said: "It's the perceptions about larger peoples' abilities that need to change. We have all gained enormous confidence since we became a troupe, so hopefully our stories are an inspiration to fat children."

Big Ballet show director Natalia Lenskikh said: "They eat normal amounts of food and the same kind of food as everyone else. It's in their genes that they don't lose the weight like other people do and the food is stored as fat."

Tickets for the show cost £17.50 for adults and £16.50 for children and over 60's.

Straight from great success at the Edinburgh Festival three of Covent Garden's well loved street performers bring their own shockingly new and very English version of Hamlet on October 5.

Ha Ha Hamlet is what the play would be like if Shakespeare had written it as a comedy - a cross between Mr Bean and James Bond!

Ben Langley, Andrew Fettes and Mike Raffone will be using their famous street theatre routines including the straight Jacket escape and acts used by Paul Daniels and Tommy Copper to get through a carry on romp of a show with songs and some rather camp dancing to shed a different light on the classic play.

Also appearing are crooning, television presenting legend Des O'Connor, medium Colin Fry and a host of other top attractions.
