TICKETS are now on sale for Whitehaven Male Voice Choir’s Annual Concert, which takes place on Saturday, June 11 in the town’s Civic Hall.
The concert will feature a selection of the popular choir’s varied and versatile repertoire.
They will be joined on the night by award-winning Irish classical crossover soprano Margaret Keys.
Tickets priced at £8 (and £7 concessions) are available from Don Messenger (concert secretary) on 01946 63452.
AGONY aunt and journalist, Virginia Ironside, will be bringing her stand-up show, The Virginia Monologues, to Rosehill Theatre on Friday, May 6, at 7.30pm.
When an agony aunt reaches the age of 60, she can lie like a trouper, jump off a bridge – or take to the stage!
Virginia Ironside is a well known British journalist, whose career has spanned from the 1960s, when she wrote a rock column for The Daily Mail, through to the present day, writing the Dilemmas column for The Independent and a monthly column for The Oldie.
The Virginia Monologues explains all that makes the sixties the best, and funniest time, of your life!
The show is presented by Scamp Theatre and it previously ran at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The director is the actor, Nigel Planer, who was in hit comedy The Young Ones.
Tickets for this event are priced at £15 (£7.50 if aged 26 or under). Contact the box office on 01946 692422.
A HEADLINE act will bring a touch of 70s glam to Hensingham Rocks.
The Glam City Rockers will perform a two-hour set of 70s classics to round off the three-day festival (May 27 to 29) in style.
The band, who play on Sunday, May 29, are fronted by The Doctor, from Dr & The Medics, alongside John Springate and Pete Phillips (from The Glitter Band), Jackie Chambers (from Girlschool) and Bob Bradbury (from Hello).
Alex Dyke, the BBC radio DJ, will play all the cheesy 70s discs to back them up.
Tickets for the weekend at Hensingham RLFC, and a sportsman’s evening with Frank Bruno, are available from www.hensinghamrocks.co.uk.
