Sean Kelly live in Millom this Friday!

Posted on: July 5, 2017 in the category homelatest by Cassie Day

So, we are coming to the end of the season and will be having a couple of weeks break for me to head up to the Edinburgh Festival and see what more lovely shows I can bring to our little town

This Friday we have our last Comedy gig until September.  This is a Goody!!!  Sean Kelly is a fabulous American Stand UP  and you may know him as the Star of “Storage Hunters” on that Telly Box!!

Sean is coming to us all the way from London Town and he is going to run a Comedy Auction in the second half too.. all proceeds going to ‘Help for Heroes’, a charity close to his heart.

Now the, we have a fair few tickets booked but I honestly thought that this one would fly off the shelves!!  This guy is going to be doing a National Tour later on in the Winter time, with other guys but he is heading to see us ( and a few others) before this and I think if we can get him a good house, we’ll have yet another Fantastic Night here in Millom.

The Thing That Came From Over There Friday 3rd February…

Posted on: February 2, 2017 in the category latest by Cassie Day

Hi Folks,

We are up and running and looking at a very busy season.

Another fantastic theatre show this week.  Gonzo Moose are an amazing theatre company and I used to manage the young lady in it too! She is Alys Torrence and a comedy actress and performer…  This is a spoof take of the 50’s Horror movies and is absolutely hilarious.

This isn’t a kids show but is suitable for ages 8+ should you wish to (and you should) your young one along.  It’s always great to see them coming to the theatre with you.

Here is the link to the show, do take a look and have a little read as I know it will be a fantastic performance.  I have booked them in to Kirkgate and the Coronation Hall too and they have already sold a lot more tickets than us!! (Honesty time)

“From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads” This Friday!

Posted on: January 17, 2017 in the category latest by Jakki Moore

Hello Folks, What a treat we have for you coming this Friday!

This Wonderful piece of theatre has completely sold out on the rest of it’s tour, So come on Millom what are you waiting for?

Written and Directed by Adrian Berry FROM IBIZA TO THE NORFOLK BROADS Adrian Berry’s acclaimed sell-out production tells the tale of a young David Bowie obsessive Martin is a boy with problems – an illness no-one understands and a head full of sound and vision. So when an unexpected gift arrives on his birthday, Martin embarks on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths about himself. What follows will change his life forever… Powerful and touching, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving tourde-force solo show featuring Alex Walton and the voice of comedian Rob Newman.

‘Heartwarming, poetic and vivid, sensitive and delightful, a real reminder of just how important it is to have people to look up to’ Love London Love Culture

“Berry has created this compelling & heartbreaking narrative….joyfully hilarious…. keeps you hooked the whole time. Completely beautiful and moving” A Younger Theatre.

Will you be joining us this Friday 20th January 8pm? Tickets are still available…

Forward Theatre Present “Genesis”

Posted on: November 21, 2016 in the category latest by Jakki Moore


Tuesday 22nd November 7.30pm Forward Theatre Project Present “Genesis”

Tuesday 22nd November 7.30pm we have a brilliant NEW Theatre show, brand new writing “Genesis” in collaboration between Forward Theatre Project and Breast Cancer Research in Manchester.
Given the subject matter, you might expect it to be either very serious or very preachy.. well.  I was at the Opening Night on Friday at The Lowry in Manchester and it was anything but either of those!

The play is very modern and has a fantastic set.  Futuristic. The three actors were fabulous and the story is relatable and well told.  It’s educative, funny and thought provoking.  It is 1 hour 20 mins straight through and I can honestly say, I was shocked when it was the End as it went so quickly.  I loved it!

We were there with the likes of Sally and Hayley (now dead of course) from Coronation Street, don’t you know… just saying!!  (Not like me to name drop!!!) Sally who plays Sally in the show will be on “Lorraine” on wednesday talking about the play too.  This play is only playing to 5 venues, 2 of which are The Lowry in Manchester and Soho Theatre in London! We are very privileged to receive this show!!! Please do come along, it is brilliant.

THIS IS NOT JUST FOR WOMEN…. MEND GET BREAST CANCER TOO!!!!  Lots of men there on Friday night.
