John Godber’s ‘Poles Apart’ Nov 24th at 7.30


If you enjoyed ‘Bouncers’ as much as I did then you will thrill at this little gem being offered at the Capstone tonight…and it’s FREE!

Enjoy a free performance from the award winning play-writer John Godber with his new comedy ‘Poles Apart’ play, which is being staged as part of Liverpool Hope’s Cornerstone Festival.

This play is a fast paced humorous take on culture, class and theatre, professionally performed at the Capstone Theatre tonight at 7,30pm by one the country’s most professional teams in acting.

The play centres on the class and cultural clashes that happen when a team of scaffolders come into contact with a group of thesps.

Well, meet Phil, Fat Glen and Polish Jan who are on task and finish as they deliver a breathless rant on life, art and sausage sarnies in a desperate effort to mend a leaking roof.
It seems it’s never over till the fat man sings!

Theatre should reach out to people where they are, but what happens when they just aren’t interested – find out what happens and how they mangle their way through a labyrinth of personal views when you visit the Capstone tonight.

‘Let It Be’ Royal Court……. till 14th November!


Last night, the show that celebrates the music of the Beatles came to Liverpool, direct from the West End.

This is to be a five week sell-out performance run, opening to coincide with John Lennon’s 75th birthday.

The smash hit show established itself as one of the West End’s most popular shows, having long runs at the Savoy and Garrick theatres.

Now, this extravagant, musical, vibrant production has arrived here in Liverpool.

This is a show that Liverpool needs 24/7, and it needs somebody with the flare and publicity backing to go out there and draw in a wider audience in a big way, so ownership of this gem of a production belongs to Merseyside as a permanent feature of the Beatle landscape.

‘The Beatles’ Superstars of our time, whose meteoric rise to fame in the sixties made them a legend overnight, and put Liverpool on the global map with their visionary music during that revolutionary era.

A show like this would certainly support the Liverpool economy further, drawing in the cruise liner pleasure seekers for their evening entertainment, as an example, and would compliment the existing Beatlemania attractions in and around our Merseyside home.

Seen by over 1 million people worldwide, ‘Let It Be’ will delight Liverpool audiences in the next few weeks.

Book a ticket for the next performance and take a trip through an evenings visual Beatlemania tour, a tour with the multimedia spectacular performance, featuring over 40 songs of the Fab four, all set in the spectacular surroundings of the Royal Court theatre Liverpool.

You will love this musical show; and you will travel back in time singing along to ‘Love me do’, and songs that held the first five places in the American top ten and dominated the charts all over the world.

Beatles words and music have been, without doubt, the biggest and most diverse influence, musically speaking, in our lifetime.
This show gives you the opportunity to not only sing, but get up and dance your socks off! Curtain call after curtain call!!!!

You will love this show,…… will travel back in time to the magical sixties when all you needed was love and a little help from your friends!

A mega-evenings performance and delightful entertainment with the music that defined a generation and captured the hearts and ideals of millions.
Relive your memories…..
Royal Court Liverpool, 01517094321
till 14th November
