Coven (Lady Maisery, O’Hooley & Tidow, Grace Petrie)
Friday 8th March, 8.00pm (Doors 7.30pm)
Come and celebrate International Women's Day 2019 with Coven - the collective of three of the British folk scene’s finest, most formidable and forthright acts: the exquisitely harmonic songwriting duo and BBC 6 Music favourites O’Hooley & Tidow; the enchanting BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning band Lady Maisery, and the irrepressible Leicester songwriter, activist and performer Grace Petrie.
Four years ago, they got together to celebrate International Women’s Day with a series of three concerts. Since then, the tour has extended year on year, with 2017 seeing them release Unholy Choir; an EP of the songs the group has collaborated on ("potency and purpose" - Louder Than War). 
Coven's 2019 tour includes six of their favourite venues. Advance booking highly recommended!
Lady Maisery – “With purpose and urgency, they create powerful, enthralling work" Songlines
O’Hooley & Tidow – "Defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.’" Independent
Grace Petrie – "A powerful new songwriting voice." Guardian
Tickets: £17.00 (£14.00 unwaged & under 18), available from:

Moonlight and Magnolias
By Ron Hutchinson
Wednesday 13th – Saturday 16th March, 7.30pm (Wed-Fri) / 2.30pm Matineé (Sat)
This hilarious slice of old Hollywood is based - in part - on fact. In 1939 David Selznick the producer of "Gone With the Wind" halted production because he hated the script.  Calling on two friends and within five days the screenplay was re-written and the rest is history.  This is Ron Hutchinson's fictional take on what happened during those five days.  The New York Daily News review said "Frankly, my dear this is one very funny play.  A rip-roaring comedy with witty and pointed dialogue around an hilarious situation"

Only Micky’s father knows the truth of what happened years ago and tries to warn Micky that the play is doomed. Micky ignores the warnings and as rehearsals progress unusual and mysterious happenings begin with deadly and terrifying consequences.

The play is a fast-moving entertaining ensemble piece in which all the children are played by adult actors.  The audience will run through a range of emotions from laughter to tears.  Don't miss this thought-provoking, entertaining piece of theatre.

Cattle Productions presents
Snow White and the Seven Ugly B*****ds
Friday 7th June, 7.00pm
Snow White is a seemingly innocent young girl. The only problem is, she’s still a virgin! This is fantastic news for her best friend, Dickey, who can’t wait to get in her knickers! The only trouble is, because Snow White is a Princess, it can only be a Prince who gets the desirable task of deflowering her. But Dickey isn’t going to put up with that – no he most certainly is not! Therefore, he enrols in Prince School, in order to train to become a Prince. Throw in an Evil Queen and her disloyal Huntsman, a genuine Prince with an irritating scrotum, and seven bloody horrible dwarfs and it’s bellyaching laughter all the way through! But the question is, just how long will Snow White have to wait for her Prince, to come?
 “It’s lewd, rude, crude, and full of filth, sexual innuendo, smut and bad language!”
Adults only: 18+ show.
Tickets: £16.00 (+£1.00 booking fee), available from:

Tudor Players presents
A Chorus of Disapproval
By Alan Ayckbourn
Tuesday 15th – Saturday 19th October, 7.15pm
A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining the local amateur light opera society.  By accident rather than design, in fact by not saying no to anything, (be it a request to obtain confidential information from his company, or an offer of illicit sex!) he advances from a small part to the lead.
“A brilliance and invention remarkable even by Ayckbourn’s standards.”
“Psychologically acute and painfully, heart breakingly funny.”
Parallels are skilfully drawn between The Beggar’s Opera and the day to day activities of the amateur society which is performing it.
