'Finding Nana' is on at the South Holland Centre on Thursday, February 22.

The South Holland Centre is celebrating all things ‘Granny’ (and ‘Grandad’) and is seeking your help.

Inspired by New Perspective’s live performance of Finding Nana on Thursday, February 22, the centre is asking people to send in their special grandparent memories, stories and photos to be displayed on a grandparent wall in the bar before the show.

The play is an autobiographical story by award-winning writer Jane Upton, who takes a nostalgic journey back to her childhood summers to bottle the memories of her nana before they are lost forever through the sands of time.

With a captivating central performance, this one-hander garnered a string of four and five star reviews at Edinburgh last year and comes highly recommended for lovers of live theatre or those who wish to tap into special memories of their own beloved grandparents.

It came about after the centre manager, Sally Harrison, saw a performance of Finding Nana by New Perspective at last year’s Edinburgh Festival and arranged to bring the play back to Spalding for local audiences to enjoy.

She said “It was a fantastic performance and it really made me think how special that relationship is between grandchildren and grandparents. I had a close relationship with my own granny and I would really love to hear others.

“We’ll be chatting in the bar before and after the show or you can send your memories for our grandparent wall to shcentre@sholland.gov.uk”

The play is aimed at an adult audience aged 14+ .

It starts at 8pm, with the grandparent wall open from 7pm in the bar.

Tickets £12.50, £11 concessions or £7.50 for under 26s. Tickets are available from the South Holland Centre box office from 01775 764777 or www.southhollandcentre.co.uk
