The Royal Ballet's Swan Lake

Out hunting, Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans. One among them transforms into the beautiful human Odette and he is immediately enamoured. But Odette is bound by a spell which keeps her captive as a swan during the day. Can Siegfried free her?

Tchaikovsky’s sensational score combines with the evocative imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and designer John Macfarlane to heighten the dramatic pathos of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s quintessential ballet classic. Swan Lake remains to this day one of the best-loved works in the classical ballet canon.

The National Theatre's Nye

A new play by Tim Price directed by Rufus Norris

Michael Sheen plays Nye Bevan in a surreal and spectacular journey through the life and legacy of the man who transformed Britain’s welfare state and created the NHS.
Confronted with death, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan’s deepest memories lead him on a mind-bending journey back through his life; from childhood to mining underground, Parliament and fights with Churchill.

Written by Tim Price and directed by Rufus Norris (Small Island), this epic new Welsh fantasia will be broadcast live from the National Theatre.

 

The Met's Madame Butterfly

The title character of Madama Butterfly—a young Japanese geisha who clings to the belief that her arrangement with a visiting American naval officer is a loving and permanent marriage—is one of the defining roles in opera. The story triggers ideas about cultural and sexual imperialism for people far removed from the opera house, and film, Broadway, and popular culture in general have riffed endlessly on it. The lyric beauty of Puccini’s score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterfly timeless.

Extraordinary soprano Asmik Grigorian tackles the demanding role of Cio-Cio-San, the loyal geisha at the heart of Puccini’s devastating tragedy. Tenor Jonathan Tetelman stars as the callous American naval officer Pinkerton, whose betrayal destroys her. Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong reprises the role of the steadfast maid Suzuki, and baritone Lucas Meachem is the American consul Sharpless.

BINGO!!

We're thrilled to announce our next BINGO event on Saturday the 18th May.  We have brought this forward a week to avoid the May Bank Holiday. 

We're keeping the core format the same – all cash prizes! We will keep the two special ticket games after games 5 and 10.  We will have the main draw after the break and also the additional draw at the end where you can sign the back of your books (we will do it properly next time!!).  

To ensure everyone has a chance to join in the fun, we highly recommend booking early as the hall's capacity is 120. Only those who reserve places will be allowed in, and we've streamlined the entry process with a QR code reader. Don't forget to bring your printed tickets or have an electronic copy on your phone for smooth entry.

We're incredibly excited about our BINGO sessions and with your continued support, we're confident it's going to continue to be an extraordinary event!  The proceeds from the event will go towards the Hall refurbishement programme.


The Royal Ballet The Winter's Tail

King Leontes of Sicilia is crippled with an all-consuming jealousy when his friend, King Polixenes of Bohemia, stays with him and his wife Hermione. What follows is a tale where a marriage is destroyed, a child is abandoned and all hope is seemingly lost for two lovers.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, The Winter's Tale is an award-winning modern ballet classic, packed with emotional turmoil heightened by Joby Talbot’s compelling score and Bob Crowley’s atmospheric designs

Portrait of Pembridge

Pembridge is full of historic buildings; we know a lot about them and while the lives of noblemen, bishops and kings are well recorded, little is known about most people whose lives have built the fabric of our community.

“Portrait of Pembridge” helps to explore our past by creating a record of people and events in Pembridge today for future generations.
