There’s an abundance of summer fun coming up at The Berry Theatre in Hedge End!
The Unwrapped free live full day of pop-up surprises will return to Greta Park on Sunday 12 June. Don’t miss the exciting line-up of outdoor theatre, music and dance, as well as a feast of market stalls and festival fun.
Inside the theatre, laughs aplenty will be provided by: Gill Sims, author of the bestselling ‘Why Mummy’ series of books (5 May); stand-up Sam Avery (13 May); Bumper Blyton (28 May) with their riotous parody show for grown-ups, chock-full of innuendo and lashings of puns; and Primrose Productions’ The Navy Lark (10 June), which harks back to the classic days of the much-loved radio series.
Experience an Ode to Joyce Grenfell (17 June), a regal sing-along with tribute band Forever Queen (2 June) as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations and community performances from Roynon Performing Arts, Diva Academy and Platform School of Dance.
There will also be NT Live screenings of Straight Line Crazy (26 May) in which Nicholas Hytner directs Ralph Fiennes in David Hare’s blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, and Prima Facie (4 August) in which Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.
Charlotte Hall, Creative Director at The Berry Theatre, said: “We are so excited to celebrate summer, creativity and our Borough over the coming months, and our teams have pulled together an abundance of activities for our communities to enjoy with friends and family.
“With so much of our work taking place across the Borough this year, we are delighted to launch Anywhere, a new programme of work encompassing all the creative things that happen beyond the walls of the theatres. We’re working together with Eastleigh Borough Council and Arts Council England to make sure that no one misses out on creative experiences.”
