Calendar Girls is based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude­not naked for a calendar to raise money to buy a new settee for the relatives' room of the local hospital after Annie's husband, John, dies of leukaemia.


The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire and hordes of press soon descend on the small village in the Yorkshire Dales.

The play is a mix of comedy and pathos, highlighting the strain, all the success and
new found fame put on Chris and Annie's long friendship.


The cast includes new member Lynda Golightly, Shakun Beadle (seen recently in The Crucible) and Will Davies, along with - Anne Hogg, Val Neal and Sylvia Collins, and many others.
