CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

Performed by a company of 27 actors, David Edgar’s new version of Nicholas Nickleby is presented across two performances, combining to create an experience of rare scope and genuine scale. There are opportunities to experience this exhilarating spectacle, afternoon and evening, all in one day.The ebullient narrative follows Nicholas, left penniless on the death of his father, as he escapes the influence of his villainous Uncle Ralph and the tyrannical schoolmaster Wackford Squeers and embarks on a thrilling journey through 1830s’ England. Dickens’ genius for creating eccentric, exuberant and captivating characters is brought vividly to life in this action-packed epic as theatrical spectacle and genuine big-heartedness flawlessly combine.Corporate Sponsor Oldham Seals.
