19th June – Tristan & Yseult – West Yorkshire Playhouse – Kneehigh Theatre
7.30pm plus Post Show Discussion

This is the original tale of forbidden desires, broken hearts and the agony of choosing one human being over another.  Seen through the eyes of the ‘Unloved’, Tristan & Yseult blends comedy, live music, grand passion and tender truths in an irresistible night of love.

Tristan & Yseult is one of Kneehigh’s most loved shows, which critics have called “a triumph”, “deliriously joyful” and “breathtaking in every respect”.

Tickets £17 (with group discount)*

Sign up now closed.

Sunday 27th October- 2pm

Slava’s Snow Show – Alhambra

A global phenomenon SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW, winner of the Time Out, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards for ‘Unique Theatrical Experience’, is unlike anything you have seen before – a world of wonder combining hilarity and poignancy with stunning spectacle and breathtaking images. The ensemble cast of clowns use water, cobwebs, bubbles and dry ice to dazzling effect; a world of wonder in which a bed becomes a boat, a web of cotton envelops the audience and one tiny piece of paper begins a blinding, heart-stopping snowstorm that engulfs an awestruck audience in a blizzard of sparkling snowflakes.

Bring the whole family (although it is billed as ‘not suitable for under 8s’ and strictly no under 2s are allowed).

Tickets £26.50 each

Sign up now – bookings will be paid for and finalised by July.

*Please note that group discounts will only be available to us if a group of 20 or more plan to come along.
