Clock Tower Theatre Company present



by Emily Garside


Grace meets Louis, who tries to chat her up in a waiting room. Pretty soon they spark up an ill-advised affair. Meanwhile she has started having coffee with John, who she talked out wasting the rest of his life on self-help books. While Grace helps John finish his life’s work, before life gives up on him, she loses herself in Louis. When Grace’s father dies, it brings home what brought their dysfunctional group together in the first place, and all three are forced to confront their feelings.

‘Don’t send Flowers’ is a darkly funny look at life and death and living with both. And how cake if not a cure for cancer, is a pretty effective placebo.


Tickets £10.00 - on sale 30th August

We have been able to bring this event to the Playhouse 2, Shaw with thanks to the support of Tradewind Recruitment - a Sunday Times Top 100 employer. I have been a supply teacher with Tradwind for over a year and their commitment to their candidates, education and young people's education is paramount. Tradewind invests in their teaching staff and sponsoring H is for Harry is just one example of the investment they put into both schools and teachers alike!


If you’re interested in registering with them or would like more information on how they can help you, they will be at the screening on the night, plus you can visit 


Thursday 3rd October at 1.00pm

Crompton Stage Society presents
THE GHOST TRAIN by Arnold Ridley

Written by Dads' Army's very own Godfrey, this play revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station one evening.
Despite the station master trying to persuade them to leave the site, they refuse – citing the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles around as their reason. He warns them, however, of the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train that sometimes haunts the line at night, bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, the group still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a terrifying night at the station.

This is a Halloween tale bound to raise the hairs on your neck.

Crompton Stage Society presents



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 11th November
