Last year

We got to the Semi Final!

The weekend of the 29th - 30th April 2023 we performed Cream Cracker under the Settee at the Northern Semi Final. At the All England Theatre Festival in Liverpool.


The wonderfully talented Sally Lewis won the best Actress award. We are extremely proud of her.

Unfortunately we didn’t win best production but we are very proud of our achievements and all that took part.
