An Evening of Clairvoyance with David Holt

david-holt-evening-of-clairvoyanceFriday 26 September 2014

One of the UK's leading Spirit Mediums returns to Heywood Civic after his very successful show earlier this year.

Tea and Coffee available from the Kitchen

"There is no death, just life beyond this"

As a medium it is my purpose to show beyond all doubt that the human soul continues to live after physical death and that the separation we feel when a loved one dies is only temporary.

The character and personality that made your loved ones who they were in life is still very much alive and well in the world of spirit. One day when we make this inevitable journey our selves, they will be there to greet you."

Join David for an evening with a difference as he passes on messages from the other side and delivers mind blowing evidence of life after death.

"An emotional and fascinating experience"

Tickets £15

Doors: 7.30pm for 8pm start.

Hey Kids present The Wizard of Oz

Tuesday 21 October - Saturday 25 October 2014

Dorothy Gale is a young farm girl who lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, in sepia-tinted Kansas in the early 1900s. She is in trouble with a cruel neighbor, Miss Almira Gulch, but Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and farmhands Hunk, Hickory, and Zeke are too busy to pay attention to her. Miss Gulch arrives with permission from the sheriff to have Dorothy's dog Toto destroyed for biting her on the leg. He is taken away, but escapes, much to Dorothy's delight. She runs away from home with him to escape Miss Gulch. They meet Professor Marvel, a fortune teller, who realizes Dorothy has run away and tricks her via his crystal ball into believing Aunt Em is ill. As Dorothy returns home, a tornado comes up. Unable to get into the storm cellar, she is hit in the head by a window pane and knocked out. She wakes up to discover the house is being carried aloft by the twister.

The house lands in the Technicolor world of Oz in Munchkin Land. Dorothy is greeted by Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, and the Munchkins, who treat her like a heroine because her house has killed the Wicked Witch of the East. Her sister, the Wicked Witch of the West, arrives. As she is about to claim the ruby slippers from her sister's feet, Glinda transfers them to Dorothy's feet instead. The Witch of the West swears revenge on her (and Toto). Glinda tells her to follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City, where the Wizard of Oz might be able to help her get back home.

On her way to the Emerald City, Dorothy meets and befriends the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion (played by the same actors who play the farmhands). They decide to join her to ask the Wizard for a brain, heart, and courage respectively.

Aladdin

aladdinSunday 21 December - Wednesday 24 December 2014

Somewhere far away, in a Kingdom known as No Peking, Aladdin spends his days toiling away in his mother's laundry. Treated as the lowest of the low, all street peasants are forbidden to set eyes on Princess Jasmyn. And so, with every pair of smelly socks he puts through the mangle, Aladdin dreams of a life where he is rich enough to look upon and woo the Princess. Just at one such moment, Aladdin's mysterious long forgotten Uncle Abanazar arrives on the scene promising all the treasures in the universe... If only Aladdin will agree to rescue a dusty old lamp...

Join Aladdin and a whole host of panto favourites including the wondrous Widow Twankey, the particularly pompous PC Pong, evil Abanazar and his silly sidekick Suzie the Slave of the Ring, on a frolicking laugh-a-minute, all-singing, all-dancing magic carpet ride through panto land!
