Spalding theatre ready to welcome Helen Woods with her National Trust Show and the Amazing Bubble Man
Think ‘National Trust’ and you may think of conservation, country estates and coastal walks; but we say, think of an evening of good old-fashioned humour and a delicious afternoon tea!
In celebration of National Trust’s recent 125th birthday, Helen Wood’s very funny one-woman show The National Trust Fan Club gallops over to the South Holland Centre stage at the end of the month. During the show, the audience will follow Helen’s quest to visit every National Trust property and become their biggest super-fan.
Spoiler alert, there are ALOT, at least 500 in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, with stop-offs at our local(ish) Belton House and Woolsthorpe Manor, home of Sir Isaac Newton and the apple tree that inspired his theory of gravity.
You’ll hear hilarious tales as Helen romps around the country ticking off each and every visit on the grand National Trust map including arriving to find winter closures in place to leaving with more than she bargained for thanks to local guides and jigsaw fayres!
The show runs for 75 minutes on Thursday, February 27, with curtain up at 7.30pm, and there is an option to book ahead for a great value Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, scone and fancies (with or without prosecco) at 6pm.
But before then, half-term is careering towards us which means we are gearing up for another busy week of family friendly events.
Little disco divas are invited to strut their stuff on the dance floor and enjoy dancing games at our undersevens family disco Top Of The Poppets on Tuesday, February 18, at 11am, and tickets are already selling fast for the bubbletastic live show The Amazing Bubble Man on Saturday, February 22, at 2pm.
In between, Aardman Animation’s favourite woolly creation comes to the big screen in Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon (U); we welcome the latest comedic adventure from the gang in Jumanji: The Next Level (12A); and finishing off the week we see the return of Angelina Jolie as the vengeful fairy in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (PG).
