Bouncers, presented by Amici Touring Theatre
Friday 5th May, 7.30pm
Originally conceived 40 years ago, Amici Touring Theatre’s latest production, Bouncers, is now one of the country’s most performed plays.It’s Friday night in a town near you. The music is playing, and it’s all happening at Cinders, the hottest spot in town. Come and see Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph play threatening bouncers, mincing lads on the make, giggly girls, pogo-ing punks and Hooray Henrys. Fast and furious, the action is non-stop against a backdrop of tatty, glitzy glamour and the flashing lights and pulsating beat of the disco floor. So get yourself down to Cinders for a great night. Tickets cost £8 and £7 for concessions.

Kirsty Mead from Rhubarb Theatre returns with her popular interactive storytelling:

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
Saturday 27th May, 2.00pm to 3.00pm and Sunday 28th May, 3.30pm to 4.30pm
The children are encouraged to act out this exciting sensory journey, using song, movement and story-telling. They will wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. This workshop also includes making their own bear masks.

Dinosaurs Love Underpants
Saturday 27th May, 3.30pm to 4.30pm and Sunday 28th May, 2.00pm to 3.00pm
This story explains the real reason Dinosaurs became extinct. Starting in a time machine, the children travel back to explore the world of the cavemen in their first pairs of pants — silly, musical and creative!
Tickets cost £6 and £2.

Steptoe and Son, presented by Hambleton Productions
Wednesday 31st May, 7.30pm
Albert and Harold; father and son. One proclaims he’s ‘a poor old man’ while the other protests that he’s ‘a dirty old man!’ In actual fact, both are telling the truth. Now it’s time to relive some of their finest misadventures through this brand new production. Marking 55 years since the show’s first broadcast, Hambledon Productions breathe life back into the Steptoe household with this faithful, fresh and hilarious adaptation. Tickets cost £10 and £9 for concessions.
