Calendar Girls

When Annie's husband John dies from Leukaemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new sofa in the local hospital waiting room.

They manage to persuade four fellow Women's Institute members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar. With their modesty spared only by artfully placed cakes, knitting and flower arrangements, and a little help from the hospital porter and an amateur photographer they complete their calendar.

Based on the true story of eleven Women's Institute members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls became the fastest selling play in British theatre history and is now a worldwide comedy hit!

Come along from 7pm for our free Ladies Night function with a glass of wine on arrival, nibbles and prizes for best dressed!
