The Sinden Theatre is located within the grounds of Homewood School and is at the heart of the Arts College. Opened in 2004, the 231 seat venue is named after its patron, actor and local resident, Sir Donald Sinden CBE. The theatre was created from a pre-existing school hall when Homewood achieved Arts College status in 2003, enabling funds to be made available for the year-long conversion to take place. The Sinden provides facilities for both the school, which has a strong Performing Arts Department, and for a wider audience in its role as a professional receiving theatre serving The Weald and south-east Kent.

Addy Van De Borgh - Headliner

He has subsequently appeared on ‘The World Stands Up’ and ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ for Comedy Central, and the BBC3 series ‘Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of ‘TV Meltdown’ for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher, has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including multiple appearances on the legendary ‘Loose Ends’ on Radio 4.

Russell Hicks - Headliner
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentlemans imagination. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage.
