An evening of Lancashire music and fun
NORMAN PRINCE and PAUL JOHNSTON
Norman Prince was the front-man and leader of the country’s top comedy folk group, The Houghton Weavers, for over 24 years and his humour and tales were a major part of the Weavers success.
Paul Johnston was a member of the ‘Legendary’ folk group – The Fivepenny Piece. He currently performs with his own group ‘Cracked Flag’ and, like Norman, has amassed a tremendous knowledge of songs and stories, with the group, over the last 20 years or so.
After meeting some of the old ‘Weavers’ fans at the dinners where Norman was ‘Speaking at’, he and Paul decided to get together every so often and return to their ‘roots’ and Norman’s first love – the folk comedy and music of his beloved Lancashire.

Crompton Stage Society presents
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

An Audience with Allan Beswick
In aid of the charity SADS which serves to provide defibrillators to local communities.
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
Friday 17th April at 8.00pm
