Picture-house

National Theatre Live:

The Madness Of King George III (12A)

George III

Live Broadcast Starts At 7pm (Doors Open 6pm)

Advanced Tickets Priced

£15/£13/£11

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Save the Signal Box

Following recent leafleting at Hebden Bridge station, a number of people have given their contact details to say that they are potentially interested in being involved in the campaign to secure the HB signal box in community ownership. The two organisations leading the initiatives, the Friends of HB Station and the Calder Valley Community Land Trust, have called an informal meeting on Sunday, 25 November at 4pm.

This will be a chance to brief people on the discussions so far with Network Rail, the ideas which the Community Land Trust has for ways to preserve the signal box over the longer term, and the possible sources of funding we have identified. We also hope that it may be possible to establish an embryonic Friends of the Signal Box.

If you would like to come, please email the CLT on info@caldervalleyclt.org.uk, and we'll send you the full details and the agenda.

Andrew Bibby, Secretary, Calder Valley Community Land Trust Lesley Mackay, secretary, Friends of HB Station.
