What's On Highlights

Nigel Slater's Toast
+ More Info +

Nigel Slater’s Toast is a new play based on his award-winning autobiography. Vividly recreating suburban England in the 1960s, Nigel Slater’s childhood is told through the tastes and smells he grew up with. From making the perfect sherry trifle, waging war over cakes through to the playground politics of sweets and the rigid rules of restaurant dining, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and…toast.

The Red Shoes
+ More Info +

Matthew Bourne's double Olivier award-winning production of The Red Shoes, based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

The Red Shoes is a tale of obsession, possession, and one girl's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world.
