The Snow Queen

Sunday 21st January

Join Ballet Theatre UK in their beautiful re-telling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale ballet, The Snow Queen.

This spectacular production follows the story of Gerda and her quest to find her friend Kay, whom the Snow Queen has placed under an evil spell.

Gerda’s fantastic adventure takes her on a journey across the frozen north where she encounters a band of gypsy’s, enchanted reindeer and a mysterious and reclusive Lapland woman. Gerda is told by the mysterious woman to continue traveling north, where she will find Kay and the Snow Queen’s Palace of Ice. Only Gerda’s love for Kay can release him from the spell and break the Snow Queen’s curse of eternal winter.

Ballet Theatre UK's renowned company of international dancers, beautiful costumes and glittering stage sets combine to create a magnificent spectacle, all set to a glorious and magical score.

A variety show for Mental Awareness

Sunday 28th January at 7:30pm

An evening of superb variety entertainment for an excellent and much needed local cause!
Book today, brighten up a dark January evening and have a great night out, raising funds for local not-for-profit groups which support people with mental health problems alongside NHS teams and help raise awareness of the fact that mental health issues can affect absolutely anyone, from any background, in any profession, at any time. We need to lose the stigma associated with mental health and accept that it's not something that should bring judgement on the sufferer but is an illness which deserves treatment without bias, just the same as any physical condition. The money raised from ticket sales and the raffle will be distributed to groups working with people suffering with mental health issues in the UHMBT area.

The following amazing acts have given their time and trouble at no cost in order to support mental health awareness and groups, some have agreed to perform as they themselves, or friends and relatives, have experienced many of the issues addressed by the various teams in our area.


Danny Matthews - The Bay Radio’s ever-cheerful breakfast and Solid Gold Sunday host will compere the evening for us, poor Winston and Lulu have to stay at home…

Holly Lovelady - a delightful singer/songwriter from Kendal who has been recognised by BBC Introduces 2016 and 2017. She has performed at many, many events in the local area including the Christmas Lights Switch On in Kendal, Lancaster and Morecambe.

Joe McCorriston - an independent Lancaster-born Singer-Songwriter, who has earned a reputation for his upbeat energetic live acoustic show. Joe is playing in Spain the week before and returning for the show!

Greenheart - a fantastic Lancaster band featuring Scotty Moorhouse, James Fraser,
Laurence (Loz) Hamilton. Creating amazing sounds using Didgeridoo, guitar loops and mesmerising drum beats. Contemporary Folk, Pop, Jazz.


Tony Vino - a comedian from the Costa del Preston, half spanish/half Scottish hybrid! He has toured the comedy scene since 2005 and has enjoyed recognition for his seamless mix of observational humour, audience interaction and quick witted responses. He has supported TV acts such as Jimmy Cricket and Tim Vine, often performing on TV and radio.


Mazza Vee - a multi talented artist and performance poet from Liverpool/Lancaster, who has a remarkable way of expressing emotion in verse. Mazza will perform a poem addressing a mirror on stage and express the emotion many of us find difficult to deal with or explain.


Together - for one night only, a group of patients and local GPs, NHS staff/students and representatives from local support groups will perform I Love My Life, a Robbie Williams song, which has a powerful message of getting through the difficult times with the support of others and looking forward to a time when life is more enjoyable. If you are a patient, former patient, NHS staff or from a local support group and you would like to join us please email socialease@yahoo.com we’d love to have you, being good is not a requirement it’s all about being together!
