SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT

Friday 1st July 2016

7.00pm – 9.30pm

Join us in the Great Hall for this production of ‘Frankenstein’ by popular theatre company, Dont Go into the Cellar.

‘Frankenstein 1899’ The nineteenth century is drawing to an end, and a brave new world is set to dawn. But the new age of enlightenment and reason will soon be challenged, and scientific fact cast asunder, when the charismatic preacher, Frankenstein, shocks Britons to the core with his claims. For the Reverend can communicate with the dead, and those sceptics intolerant of his beliefs will soon pay for their blasphemy.

£8.00 per ticket

Ages 16 +

The show is upstairs in the Great Hall, so there is limited access for those with disabilities.
