The Wizard Of Oz

Theatre Severn

23rd March-26th March (Matinee on 26th see brochure)

One of the biggest projects that an amateur theatre company can take on must be The Wizard Of Oz; not only did the Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company take it on, they owned it.

It is in the world of British Folk Music that we find our history. Our oral traditions, our customs, our sports, our interests and the stories of our characters throughout the years: Shropshire has played a huge part in this scene since time began. It is here we boast a thriving folk scene, we are home to one of the biggest folk festivals in the country, Shrewsbury pubs are usually alive with...

The Basin Stone

Gareth Scott



 Shrewsbury has always shown an interest in the work of Kimber’s Men. They have been known here ever since those fun days during Shrewsbury Folk Festival when crammed into the Bird In Hand they would sing the night away with their infectious and powerful shanties. So it is always interesting to see what they are...

John Archer

Walker Theatre

Sunday March 1st 2020


It wasn’t a full Walker Theatre that awaited the comedy Magician John  Archer. One of the very few magicians to fool Penn And Teller and with his doing so well on Britain’s Got Talent, the audience were looking forward to being both mystified and entertained and by the reaction at the end of his show? He did please...

Herman’s Hermits

Theatre Severn


There’s a funny old tale about a worker who had had the same sweeping brush since he started in the job Fifty years ago. The punchline goes I have only had three new heads and four new handles! One finds that with a lot with Sixties and Seventies Bands. It happens by natural wastage or splits, artistic differences or for...
