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.


Rise and Fall of The City of Mahagonny archiveWelcome to the city of Mahagonny. Anything goes for those with enough cash. Those with criminal tendencies can feel right at home. As hedonists flock to wallow in drink, sex and gambling, Jenny the prostitute and Jimmy the lumberjack become lovers. But a failed wager leads them to a court which sets murderers free while the poor are sentenced to death.

Music Kurt Weill. Lyrics Bertolt Brecht.
