Although we have sold 178 of 200 tickets for our Iolanthe show this week, we have taken the decision to POSTPONE the show until further notice.

We owe a duty of care to our cast and audience but due to the current Corona Virus situation we feel it necessary to help protect our friends.

Once the current situation is resolved we will resume rehearsals and advise of the new production date.

All pre-paid tickets may be held and will be honoured for the rescheduled show but also, upon request, ticket monies will be fully refunded.

Contact Tony Johnson on 07759 413289 or email tony8j@talktalk.net for details.

This was not a decision taken lightly but we trust our friends will understand.
