May the Twenty Seventh is the date and the venue is The Hive in Shrewsbury. For many years there has been great music played in the Pubs and Clubs and Shrewsbury. Great singers, guitarists and poets. Shrewsbury people may only see them once or twice and sometimes never again. However, it is worth saying the standard of music played is top level and most players in the pubs and clubs of Shrewsbury...

The Amazing Bubble Man, Walker Theatre, 24th April 2022 It was a packed Walker Theatre that welcomed back Louis Pearl A.K.A. The Amazing Bubble Man.

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. With a cast of 49 the stage was filled with people enjoying themselves and their performance, as was the audience that gathered tonight...

Ireland, The Show Theatre Severn 10th March 2022 There are two things I wish to say to you initially before I come on to tonight’s performance.

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 the Shrewsbury Crowd....

Herman’s Hermits Theatre Severn 28th/February/2020 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 whatever reason but it is...

Get Your Wigle On Shrek The Musical Theatre Severn 5th February- 9th February (Matinee Saturday 2 p.m. & Sunday 1 p.m.) The year was 2001 and we were all in a brand new century expecting brand new things. In cinema we got Shrek. A sweeping success, it gave just the right amount of irreverent humour to win its way into the very psyche of the British population. Sarcasm and Irony were the key...

Geared for the younger audience (5 to 12) Exciting Science...

The Pitmen Poets, Walker Theatre, Wednesday 30th November 2019 If you were around pre-Nineteen Eighty Four you will be very much aware of how mining and mining communities were the very backbone to our existence. They kept us warm and illuminated. You might also be aware that that date is one of the most crucial dates in our industrial heritage. It was the year that the miners stood firm against...
