An Evening with Paddy Ashdown
#paddyashdown
The Warehouse is delighted to welcome Lord Ashdown to launch his latest book, ‘NEIN! Standing up to Hitler 1934 – 1945’ in aid of the theatre’s Expansion Appeal. Known here in Ilminster as ‘Paddy’, he was our Member of Parliament from 1983 to 2001 and Leader of the Liberal Democrats from 1988 to 1999.
Previously Paddy served as a Royal Marine and Special Boat Service officer, an intelligence officer in the UK security services and as International High Representative for Bosnia and Hertzegovinia. Happy to be described as a polyglot, Paddy is fluent in several languages including Mandarin.
With such a background it would appear an almost natural progression that Paddy should re-invent himself as a writer. He has earned international recognition for his work and now we can look forward to this latest book which is a revelatory new history of German opposition to Hitler.

Ilminster Entertainments Society is a registered charity (no.291977) and was formed in 1947 with its inaugural production of ‘The Farmer’s Wife’. The society presents five productions in the theatre every year including its very popular Christmas show. It comprises over 100 members, both active in the theatre and also social members.

Some years ago we were lucky enough to obtain premises at the former fruit and vegetable warehouse on Brewery Lane. Through much hard work, grants and donations a theatre was formed which now seats 150 people and represents one of the most well equipped, professional-standard amateur theatres in the county. The theatre now stages IES productions as well as outside theatre and musical companies and also plays host to Ilminster Cinema Club, Ile Valley Flower Club and many other social clubs. The Theatre is also available for private hire for parties and corporate events.
