The Hawth has just announced its new season for the Summer months and it certainly promises a fun-packed summer of laughter, music and more.
Some of the big names in comedy have already sold out, with tickets flying out the door for Julian Clary,
Al Murray, Shappi Khorssandi, Jimmy Carr and Romesh Ranganathan. However, there is still plenty of comedy to enjoy with The Horne Section presenting a night of comedy, songs, dancing and a lot of mucking about, This is Going to Hurt delving into Adam Kay’s Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor. Plus Sam Avery: The Learner Parent, Mark Watson’s Infinite Show and Power and Chaos with Fern Brady will have you laughing all the way home.
There’s music that will have you reminiscing, relaxing and rocking out… but perhaps not all at once! The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra make a welcome return with their Film Music Gala, we have Americana Live, a free afternoon of fantastic music in the foyer, Battle of the Bands offering up a £500 prize to the winners and Northern Live – Do I Love You, the most authentic Northern Soul show on tour today. We will also be playing host to tributes to some chart topping favourites, including Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, Queen, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin
If you are looking for show-stopping choreography, dazzling costumes and iconic songs, then look no further as Cabaret hits the stage this September to delight audiences for one week only. Come along any enjoy Money Makes the World Go Round, Maybe this Time, Cabaret and many more.
There are even more fabulous theatrical treats outside in our beautiful woodland amphitheatre. Immerse yourself in Shakespearean classics Romeo & Juliet and The Tempest, enjoy the frisson of fear in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or come along to Ali Baba for an afternoon of family fun.
There is more for family to look forward to this summer as Eric Carle’s ever-popular picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar is brought to the stage, Schlomo takes children on a Beatbox Adventure and Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom comes to life before your eyes. For those who would prefer to be on the stage themselves the Aladdin Junior Summer School is the ideal opportunity for 7 – 18 year olds to get involved.
Dance comes in many forms this season with Ballet Central giving young professionals the chance to begin their careers, Rhythm of the Dance showcasing the best in Irish dance and Dreamboys showing off their moves to delight the crowds!
As always there are fantastic films, live screening and exhibitions to look forward to in The Hawth Cinema.
