We have been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s #BagsofHelp initiative! Vote for us to win the top prize in store!

During March and April this year, we will be participating in the Tesco Bags of Help Competition in the two Congleton Stores. Please help our fund-raising efforts by voting for us each time you shop in either the main Barn Road store, or the smaller West Heath Tesco Express. Simply voting for us each time you shop will determine how much of the money available we will get, with a maximum of up to £4,000.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores – being awarded to local community projects.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from carrier bag sales in Tesco store. The public will now vote in store during March and April on who should receive the awards.

Constellations by Nick Payne

Directed by Beckie Morley
Assisted by Joe Stevenson

By special arrangement with Curtis Brown

Constellations tells the story of two people, Roland and Marianne and explores the deepest depths of their relationship and what could have happened if they had done things differently in another universe. A heart-warming comedy that manages to touch every emotion, the play follows the ups and downs of their relationship from the beginning to the end.

Constellations premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in January 2012 and the play received strong reviews from critics and subsequently transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End in November 2012. Constellations was named as the winner of the best play category at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards making the 29 year Nick Payne the youngest ever winner of the award.

Wind in the Willows , by Kenneth Grahame, specially adapted for the stage by Gill Morrell. The rural tranquillity of life on the river bank and its inhabitants - Mole, Ratty, Badger et al. - is shattered by the eccentric behaviour of Mr Toad of Toad Hall. Following an incident with a motor car, Toad is arrested by his arch enemies the weasels and sentenced to life in prison. But he escapes, and after a series of adventures returns to Toad Hall, to find that it has been occupied by the Weasels. An exciting conclusion is assured as his friends rally round in his hour of need.

A rollicking adventure story, suitable for all the family

'Finding Your Feet’ follows ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott as she tries to rebuild her life after discovering that her husband of forty years is having an affair.

Moving in with her estranged sister Bif, she reluctantly allows herself to be dragged along to the local community dance class, where a new lease on life, new friends, and – possibly – new romance await her.

A brilliant British cast

In the UK, we’re lucky to have a strong tradition of “actoors” rather than stars – theatrically trained to enjoy a longevity in their careers that isn’t necessarily the norm elsewhere.

Far from throwing a few hot young things at a poster and hoping for the best, the most successful British rom-coms have one thing in common, and that’s an impressive cast of homegrown talent.

In the vein of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Calendar Girls and Bridget Jones’s Diary, the cast of Finding Your Feet reads like a who’s who of British greats, including Imelda Staunton, Joanna Lumley, Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall, all giving fantastic performances that prove they’re still very much at the top of their game, darling...

Tickets: £5.00 available from Congleton Tourist Information Centre - 01260 271095

The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre near the leisure centre. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows. The original theatre built in the 1980s has been extended. The extension has rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.

These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows. pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have during our season something to all tastes.
