CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.


But First This archiveAlong with the countryside, the monarchy and freedom of speech, Radio 4 is in the top seven "Best Things About Britain Today", according to a recent poll. But a new Controller is out to destroy this cherished institution! Can the intrepid team of presenters foil her wicked plan? Written by BBC newsreader Kathy Clugston with music by Desmond O'Connor, But First This is a witty and lovingly irreverent new musical set in the world of Woman's Hour, The Shipping Forecast, The Today Programme, Big Ben and, of course, the Pips. Just a Minute, make sure you're on the Front Row, Today, Saturday Live or Midweek, not at Broadcasting House but at The Watermill Theatre. It's guaranteed to be livelier than Book at Bedtime. Warning: an in-depth knowledge of Farming Today may be required!
