A CHRISTMAS CAROL
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Karen Louise Hebden.
Charles Dickens’ timeless classic is brought to life in a joyous adaptation by Karen Louise Hebden.
One bitter Christmas Eve, a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to, and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?
All the iconic moments are here from this timeless epic, and we have gone to great lengths to find the most miserable "Baa Humbug" actor we can find and stuffed him full of Christmas Spirits.
Tickets £10.00 on general sale from 4th November

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (U)
George Bailey has so many problems he is thinking about ending it all - and it's Christmas! As the angels discuss George, we see his life in flashback. As George is about to jump from a bridge, he
ends up rescuing his guardian angel, Clarence - who then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn't been for all his good deeds over the years.

Following the last two years of sell-outs of her show “Billie & Me” Patti returns with her brand new one-woman show “Aretha and Me”. In this fascinating show, Patti compares and contrasts her life with that of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, whose celebrated career included 17 Top 10 singles and 20 No.1 R&B hits during her 5 decades of recording.
Patti will be singing some of her favourite Aretha Franklin numbers including Respect, Say A Little Prayer, Natural Women, Chain of Fools and Think and many more with some of her own favourites which are special to her.

By Richard Harris
They're back! The ladies from 'Ladies Day' and 'Ladies Down Under' are joined by some new friends to bring you this hilarious and touching play by Richard Harris.
'Stepping Out' centres around eight individuals from disparate backgrounds, with differing motivations who all attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall.
Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness that culminates is a spectacular dance number.
Tickets £10.00 available 11th Jan
Saturday 6th March at 8.00pm
An Audience with Allan Beswick
Witty, acerbic, charming, chatty and occasionally just down right rude he has earned plaudits, awards and even a few death threats in more than forty years of broadcasting. He’s not sure of which he is most proud. Unlike his phone-in across the north west he will be live on stage with no ‘cut off’ button to hide behind; he’ll tell tales of life and the Universe as seen through the eyes of a working class lad from a council estate in Lancashire. Two hours of “whatever comes into his head comes out of his mouth”.
Tickets £10.00 available 18th January
Don't forget that a number of local restaurants offer discounts with your ticket for any event.
