2017/2018 Programme

Please note different venues, timings and prices for events.

Shows in October and December will be held at The Bay, formerly known as By the Bay. These include a 2-course supper.

Shows in January, February and March will be held at Marine Theatre (The Bay is closed for refurbishment during those months) and include a 2-course supper courtesy of Dottie Kitchen, the new highly rated on-site caterer

To help both kitchens cater for such large numbers of guests and keep costs down, you will be asked to indicate whether you require a vegetarian option when buying your ticket – your cooperation is very much appreciated.

In November we are holding a special one-off big band concert for Remembrance Weekend at Marine Theatre (please see below for details)
