Village Hall 8.00 pm     

Tickets: Adults £12  Booking essential 07964 710983

The Improvised Adventure is a riotous improvised spoof chock full of innuendo and lashings of puns, all in the style of the Nation’s favourite author, Enid Blyton.

Come and delight in lashings of ginger beer, grab a cheeky tongue sandwich or wrap your lips round a nice spotted dick!  

Cast yourself back to your childhood in a show that’s utterly unique and spontaneous whilst taking a sideways glance at childhood favourite books like The Famous Five and Mallory Towers.

'The Make Em Ups' are a cast of some of the UK's best-known improvisers (as seen in; Austentatious, Showstoppers! and TV’s Doctor Who) invent a hilarious improvised adventure live on the hoof. Performed in vintage costume with music and songs, the show is an hilarious tongue-in-cheek homage.
