Whilst our volunteer editors will do their best to ensure our events listings are as up to date and accurate as possible; with the fast pace of how things are changing, it is inevitable that some will slip through the net. If you are planning on travelling for larger events, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly to avoid disappointment. We are putting in place new measures to give event organisers a friendly reminder to see if they wish to remove cancelled events, so we're sorry if it looks a bit bare in here :(

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for free, professional advice.

Saturday matinee at 2.30 pm.

Suitable for 12+

Tickets £15, £12 plus booking fee.


Fur Coat and No Knickers, 5th June 2024 to 8th June 2024, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (12.8 miles)
The Rejects return to The Headgate Theatre after their recent successes with ‘Abigail’s Party’, ‘Boeing Boeing’, ‘Little Voice’, and ‘Bouncers’. This sidesplitting play is unashamedly politically incorrect. It transports us to riotous antics at the wedding of Deirdre and Mark. The fun begins on the stag night when an inebriated Mark is chained to a lamppost with a blow-up rubber doll. The wedding itself is hysterical too, with half the guests, including the priest, suffering blinding hangovers. If you delight in comic chaos and a night of high-spirited farce this is the play for you.

Contains adult themes and language.

Saturday matinee at 3pm

Tickets £15,£13.50 plus booking fee.
