CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


Crown Prince archiveJack Batley is the crown prince of Beech Hill Bowling Club. Groundsman, champion, expert and much love by East Yorkshire's 'ladies who lunch'. Whatever it is, Jack's done it twice over; the romances, the fights, the rivalry, the dirty tricks... From St Anne's to St Ives Jack is a legend, and he's got the back support to prove it! But Jack's getting older, he's losing his edge, his eyes, his charm and the rest of his hair, and there are young pretenders challenging for his title. He may be the Rocky Balboa of bowls, but for how much longer? In a surprising and touchingly funny look at crown green bowls from the worm's eye view, we follow battling Jack Batley as he takes on all comers in this amusing and unsettling bitter sweet comedy. The world is changing fast, but Jack knows that some things will always stay the same, come hell, Hull or high water... he'll always be the crown prince.
