Laugh? it’s a continuous roll! :-) Tonight was opening night for Lamphouse Theatre’s edition of their ‘A Christmas Carol ‘ and what a night it was....! A ‘Clever - Ingenious - Full of Humour’ rollercoaster ride of entertainment. Take my hat off to Tom Fox, the one-man Scrooge, Cratchit family, Marley, Ghosts, bystanders and all. It’s a mad-cap caper of a live stage show that’s worth the tenner to go, have a laugh (what we probably need) and keep a small theatre company going, in the process. From flying ghosts and hidden rooms to clever acting - it’s a nonstop

A crash of drums, a flash of light…

A crash of drums, a flash of light, his golden coat flew out of sight.....from 1920's flappers to Paris in the moonlight, from camels in Israel to Elvis in Egypt... it's a non-stop colour blasting, costume changing, musical that ignites you from start to finish!   Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat opened tonight at New Theatre Peterborough and is here until Saturday 11th. It was a FULL HOUSE and I mean FULL HOUSE with people queueing outside to buy tickets tonight at 7.30pm as the show was still due to start. 800+ seats taken up.   If, like

Shout all about it! Did you go to the Lulu concert at the New Theatre? It wasn't a full house but there were certainly a lot of people there. I went as I thought it would be a good pressie for my mum as Lulu was more her era than mine. And I say that because even though Lulu has lasted through the years, she's not really someone who has been in the headline of music, in the charts much or grabbed our attention. I also can't say that 'we' all know her because most of the younger than

If you've never seen Avenue Q (premiered on New York's Broadway) then you're going to be in for a bit of a surprise when you see puppeteers on the stage alongside their puppets...after all you never saw them on Sesame Street, Pitkins or the Muppets.. but then again, this isn't any of them, is it! - This an ADULT take on it and that's why it's definitely NOT A CHILDREN'S SHOW!!!! 🚸 Tonight was the opening night at New Theatre Peterborough which had a good audience for a Tuesday night and the stage looks huge after its makeover by Selladoor Worldwide making room for

PCRFM’s Craig Bunday speaking with David Hutchinson (Director of Selladoor ) and Richie Ross (Peterborough’s Manager) We're at a Press Invite today talking about all the new shows, productions, music and plays coming to New Theatre Peterborough, when they take over, officially, in September 2019. Changes in the theatre will be minimal with some extra stage space allowing some larger shows to appear here, however, the theatre still has its ‘wow’ factor and they want to bring the West End to us in Peterborough. New Press and Marketing Manager Jack has moved from Vivacity so it’s great to have some Peterborough

Delilah! So, initially I wasn't interested in the concert that was going to be performing at Peterborough United Football Ground, mainly as I'm not personally a concert follower. The only one I've ever been to was waaaayyy back in 1989, Wembley Stadium for Cliff Richard (and before you start....he was really popular back then). It was 'The Main Event' I got to see him sing and came away with a lovely colour glossy brochure, so was chuffed to bits. However, I missed out on Madonna and Michael Jackson when they played at Leeds in the 1980s, because as I

The Yaxley Vintage festival is a fantastic way to spend the weekend. Hosted by the local scouts and guides, the festival was home to numerous stalls and rides, as well as a petting farm, supplying you with food to feed the bunnies and goats (for free!) making it a perfect place for young children. The event ran on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June. The festival is free to enter, although donations are accepted. However, it doesn’t stop there! The main attraction of the festival was the fun dog show. The audience were greeted by an abundance of cute

It's mid-June which must mean it's the wonderful Peterborough Heritage Festival! And this year the theme is the Victorian Era. Based over the whole weekend, the Heritage covers the town centre, Cathedral grounds and the museum. Visit the Victorian fun fair on Cathedral Square. There’s the huge #HelterSkelter#TestYourStrength and #SwingBoats  Visit Heritage Street for some activities too... art, creativity, family history, local history society and where you can see Roland with his free art workshop - Why not make a Father’s Day card or a Father’s Day plaque - something to make for dad for today? There is even a competition...

It’s Day 28 of our 30 Days In May Challenge: Zooseum! If you go down to the museum this week you’re in for a big surprise! On entering the main Zooseum room I’m greeted with an activity sheet for the tots and for the juniors to complete on their way around on the Museum’s trail. I’ve met Clunk the Eurasian Eagle Owl who’s the largest of the bunch... he’s 26 years old already and can live up to around 50 in captivity... the oldest known is around 86! Wow! Owlbert is the tiniest and cutest here, she is a White

Welcome to Day 25 of our 30 Days in May Challenge: The Greatest Hits of Motown - How Sweet It Is. I was so fortunate to get tickets to this event as it had nearly sold out at Peterborough Theatre! But, why is it so popular? Now in its 18th successive year, it's a stunning 100% live show which combines first-class music with the slickest choreography and an amazing band - it's set to deliver a truly outstanding performance for the best Motown experience you will ever have! It promises...."This show will have you Dancing On The Ceiling, with songs
