Thursday August 17th

I am delighted to announce that we have once again managed to get our hands on very special tickets to another exciting preview night at the lovely Theatre Royal Margate.

We are very lucky to have the Youth Music Theatre UK (YMT) making their first visit to Margate this summer with the musical production of “Jabberwocky”

This company is renowned for launching the careers of the musical theatre stars of tomorrow, and their shows are always something special.

This performance is on Thursday 17 August at 7pm and there are more details about the show here:

The show is suitable for all ages and last approx. 2 hours including one interval.

We have issued allocated free tickets for 50 people who would like to come along and see this fabulous young company ( and help spread the word afterwards of course).

Tickets for the Preview will only be available to an invited list.

We have invited people to join us who would otherwise not be able to come along and see the show due to hardship.

We have allocated some tickets to service users we are working with who will hear from this weekend and also to the majorettes group who have been ever so busy at carnivals all summer supporting the Alfie Gough Trust, a charity we support and who has supported us too over the years.
