17 December

For the perfect kick start to the festive period Peter Gill's Swinging & Rocking Christmas Evening with his band The Good Time Charlies is always the answer but this year particularly, when we all need cheering up, this is the perfect antidote.  With audience numbers restricted, Peter will present two different performances, both of 90 minutes without an interval, on the same night.  Each will be a smorgasbord of boogie woogie, rock n roll and swing classics and Christmas gems such as 'Down The Road Apiece', 'Santa Claus is Coming In A Boogie Woogie Choo Choo Train', 'Run Run Rudolph', 'Santa Claus Boogie', 'White Christmas', 'Santa Claus Is Comin To Town', 'Winter Wonderland' and 'Well Alright Okay You Win'.  A wonderful evening filled with great, feelgood tunes and plenty of humour - simply too good to miss.

The Dowager's Oyster starring Dr Evadne Hinge

28 April - 1 May

DUE TO THE PANDEMIC IT HAS BEEN NECESSARY TO RESCHEDULE THIS PRODUCTION TO APRIL 2021. BOX OFFICE WILL BE IN TOUCH SHORTLY REGARDING REFUNDS FOR THOSE WHO HAD ALREADY SWITCHED BEFORE OPENING FOR NEW BOOKINGS

We're very pleased to announce that a legend of British comedy is to come out of retirement in France to appear in a musical romp here this year as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations. The Dowager's Oyster is described as a light opera that captures the comic book charades of a 1920s murder mystery farce and at its heart is the return to the stage of Dr Evadne Hinge, one half of the enormously popular double act Hinge and Bracket which entertained audiences with their songs and 'theatrical memories' for 30 years.

The story so far...

Persephone, Lady Tindale, sits in her boudoir, deep in thought. Cynthia, her only daughter, has recently become engaged. The Honourable Freddy Marriott would appear to be on the surface an admirable choice of fiancé. But the Dowager has doubts about him. Serious doubts. And now feather-headed Cynthia seems to be set on planning a trip to France. And she wants her mother to accompany her. The Dowager has never up till now encountered a situation she was unable to dominate and control through the sheer force of her personality. But she is about to come up against circumstances unparalleled in her experience.

Musically, the show has a roaring 1920s dance band score that nods to Gilbert and Sullivan with a twist of Kurt Weill and with just four performances scheduled we are expecting a sell out run long before the show opens - be prepared to book early!
