Theatre Trip

Tonight I went off to see the Calendar Girls at the Hall for Cornwall with the girls from work, and Sally-Ann.

I have borrowed this wording from their website to illustrate what the show was about, for those of you who have never heard of it before:

"A group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, spark a global phenomenon by persuading one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference! As interest snowballs, the CALENDAR GIRLS find themselves revealing more than they'd ever planned...
A very British story, with a very British heart, CALENDAR GIRLS is based on an uplifting and very inspiring true story that is quirky, poignant and hilarious."
(wording from http://www.seecalendargirls.com/)

The place was packed, and we were up in the gods so to speak, but the atmosphere was electric, and all of the women there were looking forward to a unique performance.

Our show is with the cast that runs up until 24 July, and includes, Letitia Dean, Charlie Dimmock, and Hannah Waterman.

The show was fantastic!

I laughed 'til I cried and then cried 'til I laughed again.

An inspiring story for all women and well worth a trip to the theatre if it is showing in your area.


  1. Sounded like a wonderful night out...

  2. one day (approx 2015) we will go to the theatre again

  3. I'm sure you had a great time. I have seen the movie and it was brilliant, I should imagine seeing it at the theatre is even better.
