Sunday 27th of July: Nick: An Accidental Hero
Baycourt presents Arts on Tour - bringing live and local top acts to our top town!
Nick: An Accidental Hero is an inspiring true story about an ordinary man overcoming extraordinary challenges. A solo show written and performed by Renee Lyons, it will have you bursting at the seams with laughter one minute and reaching for the tissues the next!
Nick Chisholm was a typical Kiwi bloke who was struck with a devastating stroke on the rugby field at age 27. Unable to walk, talk, or even swallow, he was left with a condition known as “locked in syndrome”, but throughout twelve years of hard work, fierce determination, the love of his family and the crazy and entertaining antics of his friends, Nick Chisholm not only survived but thrived. He even found the unthinkable ... love on the internet.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. This is the ultimate story of friendship, of triumph over adversity and of love.

In 2012, Rovers songwriter/producer George Millar responded by heading back to the studio and recording a new CD full of songs of the sea, including a tribute to The Titanic for its 100th anniversary. The release made headlines in both America and Ireland, and was the soundtrack for a Canadian documentary about the Harland and Wolff shipyards of Belfast where the mighty ship was built.
