Stop Press - Spotty Socks Theatre Company
With the last minute enforced cancellation of the proposed "Educating Rita" production, the theatre company has pulled out all the stops by securing an alternative comedy to replace the event - Teechers. Same date, time and costs, so ticket sales are open again.
See the 'Events' page for details.
Educating Rita: Friday 25 August
We have been advised by the Spotty Socks Theatre Company that their application for performing rights to produce this play has not been granted. The show has therefore been cancelled.
Alternatives are currently being investigated, and we'll advise of any solution asap.
Full refunds for those who have already booked will, of course, be offered as soon as the options are presented.
