Coronavirus. We have suspended all shows until the end of June. Realistically it could be longer before we can re-open and we will assess events on a rolling monthly basis. For now we are showing shows scheduled for July onwards and you can safely book tickets for anything listed as we will, of course, give full refunds for any events that are cancelled.
At the moment we have no income and although our costs have also reduced, we still have to pay various bills. If you value the Public Hall and want to help ensure we are still here for the long term please consider making a donation, no matter how small, by going to our PayPal Charity Fundraiser page.

The King and I

By Rogers and Hammerstein

One of the most colourful and spectacular musicals ever written, The King and I is based on the real life story of the British governess, Anna Leonowens, who is employed by the tyrannical King of Siam to tutor his 67 children. First staged in 1951, the show was an immediate hit and went on to win several awards before being made into a very successful film starring Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner. With songs like Shall We Dance, Getting to Know You and Something Wonderful, this is the gem in the Rodgers & Hammerstein library.

This brilliant family musical, based on a true tale, is laced with an abundance of humour, toe-tapping company dance numbers and one hit song after another, such as There’s No Business Like Show Business, Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better, and They Say It’s Wonderful.
