A Bunch Of Amateurs

19th October - 26th October 2019     

 Director:Debra West
Writer:Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steel arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!

Dinner For 100


Friday 8th November 2019

Join us for an evening of celebration of the career of a little known (local) comedian called Freddie Frinton (though he is far better known in countries such as Germany, Sweden, Denmark, South Africa and Australia to name but a few!)  The evening will consist of a full Music Hall show by Adam Borzone and the Music Hall Society, a two-course fish and chip supper, as well as local volunteer actors performing skits and comedy monologues around the tables of guests.

Tickets can be purchased from Papa's Fish & Chips, Cleethorpes Pier.
