Out now! Towngate Winter / Spring Brochure

The Summer holidays are over, but there is a ton of Winter fun coming up at the Towngate!

Towngate Brochure large This Autumn we have an incredible line up of productions for all ages and tastes. We're dusting off our deerstalkers in October when everyone's favourite detective, Sherlock Holmes, comes to the Towngate in the deeply daft theatrical caper - Sherlock Holmes And The Crimson Cobbles! If you liked The 39 Steps, you'll love this!

Further highlights in 2017 include the return of Mad About The Musicals which stars Britain's Got Talent winner Jai McDowell, also; Milkshake! favourite Jen Pringle will be donning a pair of ruby slippers to play Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz; and the Russian State Ballet will be performing the Christmas classic The Nutcracker - the perfect festive ballet which is loved by all generations.

We can't believe how quickly this year is flying by - we're already gearing up for PANTO TIME! If you haven't already heard, this year's magical panto will be the 'genie-ous' tale of ALADDIN! Our panto dream team, Simon Fielding and Sophie Ladds will be returning to the Towngate stage from 28 November-2 January, and we are thrilled to welcome back the wonderful Daniel Stockton who stole our hearts last year as Dame Dolly Dumpling. Aladdin is continuing to break all previous Box Office records - so if you haven't booked yet, call the Box Office quickly before the best seats fly away!

There's no sign of us slowing down in 2018 - we have a jam-packed season to pull you out of the post-Christmas blues! If you need a laugh then The Only Way Is Dick will have you rolling in the Mirren aisles (strictly for ages 18+ only!); or if you loved The Wam Bam Club then we have another magical evening with Cirque Enchantment; or if you're in the mood for a dark, mysterious, drama then Blackeyed Theatre will be returning to Basildon with The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde.

Don't forget that Gift Vouchers are available from the Box Office in a variety of amounts to suit all budgets - perfect for Christmas presents! And speaking of Christmas - check out our Festive Menu on the back page - we've got our table booked already for the Towngate Christmas Meal!

We hope you enjoy reading through our new season brochure, and myself and the team look forward to welcoming you to the Towngate soon.

Best wishes, Anne-Marie Woodley and the Towngate Team
