2016-01-28: 'All Roads Lead to Rome' At Dunstable Library


A one-man show, All Roads Lead to Rome, is coming to Dunstable Library on 28th January 2016, combining storytelling, comedy and bits of a Triumph Herald Estate.

Chris Dobrowolski  has lovingly repaired his family car so that he can drive it from his childhood home in Braintree to Rome via Turin where his English car was designed.

One review of the show said: ‘This is one of the best shows I have ever seen in a theatre – and it isn't really a show… It's like someone showing you their holiday snaps - except this time you actually want to stay.’

'All Roads Lead to Rome' brings together car mechanics, a road trip, dictators, and the fetishisation of possessions in a solo performance using old photos, new film and surprising mechanical objects.

The doors open at 7pm. This show contains strong language, which would be unsuitable for children under the age of 14. Admission is on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis, and after you have seen the show you can donate an amount of your choosing up to £5.

Microchip Your Dog!


In England, all dogs will need to be microchipped from 6 April 2016. Dog owners will need to:

  • Have their dog microchipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases
  • Keep their contact details up-to-date on the databases
  • Where a dog is transferred to a new keeper, the new keeper must, unless the previous keeper has already done so, record their details and any change in the dog’s name with the database on which the dog’s details are recorded


Model Making and Car Racing Coming to Dunstable Library


The top floor of Dunstable Library is to be turned into a model-making den. Members of the public are to be invited to create their own model replica of a family car, and then race it in the Selfie Slot Car Championship event on Saturday, 5 March 2016.

Anyone who loves model-making, cars, Scalextric, the Grand Prix, experimenting, making, getting things to work is invited to come have some fun.


Model-making workshops will take place during the half-term school holidays from Monday, 15th February, to Saturday, 20th February, 10am-12pm and 3-5pm, (there is no workshop on Thursday morning, 18 February). The workshops are free to take part but booking is essential as numbers are limited.

The main event (Saturday, 5 March, 10-4.30pm) will take place with qualifiers in the morning and the final race event in the afternoon.

To book:

  • email Dunstable.library@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk or,
  • call Dunstable Library on 0300 300 8056 or,
  • drop in and book your places on the workshop.
