We’re delighted that A Parson’s Tale is now back performing in village and church halls around the north west. Last year the show, which stars entertainer Bob Young, visited 9 venues, with the very first performance taking place at the end of 2012 in Bolton. That’s a total of 10 venues.
On 17th January we were extremely pleased to visit the fabulous village of Mellor (nr. Marple) just outside Stockport where we were treated to a warm and receptive sell-out audience. Thank you to Guy for all his efforts in pulling in the local parishioners and friends of the Parish! We had a great time!
Theatre in Bolton
We’re very pleased to be returning to the outskirts of Bolton next month on Thursday, 20th February when we visit Christ Church Hall in the village of Little Lever. Tickets for the show are available online or via the church hall themselves if you live locally! As always, you may also pay on the door – but if it’s anything like the last show, we may not always be able to guarantee you a seat!!
After Little Lever we’re also making a return to Waterfoot, Rawntenstall. This time A Parson’s Tale is performing at The New Millennium Theatre. The show is actually going to be performing there for 2 nights – Thursday 24th and Friday 25th April. We’re quite looking forward to this visit actually as it will mark the first time the Rev & Mrs Fletcher have appeared in a theatre style venue on a raised stage, and with a balcony – up to now, Bob has performed on a level or very low stage in church and village halls (although, not to break too much with our norm, the theatre is in fact an old converted Church Hall)! Again, tickets are available online, from the vibrant theatre themselves or on the door.
We are currently in the process of booking in further venues for this year’s run. If you have a village hall, church hall, community centre or similar, who may wish to host a night of live Victorian entertainment, please do check out details on joining our Touring Network!
