From the producers of the West End hit shows 'Seven Drunken Nights - The Story of The Dubliners' and 'Walk Right Back - The Everly Brothers Story', this brand new production takes to the stage for 2019.
'Carole - The Music of Carole King' is the story of the career of one of the most successful and admired songwriters in the history of popular music.
With a cast of the UK's finest musicians, singers and dancers, we tell the story of the music of Carole King, from its early beginnings in New York in that hotbed of creativity that was the Brill Building to life in LA, The Troubadour Club and the singer-songwriter movement of early 70's California.
Featuring not only songs from the Carole King songbook but also songs that were written and recorded by some of the greatest artists and songwriting partnerships and iconic artists such as Aretha Franklin, The Drifters, The Shirelles, The Monkees, The Beatles, The Everly Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Little Eva, Herman's Hermits and James Taylor. This incredible journey through the music that defined an era will have you on your feet and dancing in the aisles.

Now that Rock Challenge rehearsals have commenced it seems like a good time to start selling tickets!Rock Challenge is a National school dance competition and is a fantastic community event with the Regional round being held at the Hawth Theatre on Tuesday 26th February 2019.Sixty-five BHG students have signed up to take part in the production that excludes those that will later sign up to help with hair and makeup, staging and lighting so it really is a whole school event.For the first time, Rock Challenge are doing a pre-release group booking option, where schools can book for a large group who will then be able to sit together to really get behind their school. To be a part of this we ask you to buy your tickets through the school ticketing system.There will still be an option to book your ticket after the deadline directly through The Hawth Theatre but you wont be grouped together as a school.

Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show to the stage.
Based on her number one best seller, “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled.” She’s been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it.
Ruby Wax if you don’t know is a much loved, U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous” and is a mental health campaigner.
This event is your passport to saner living and is a follow up to her previous sell out show and book, “Sane New World.”
By the way, she graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness–based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago so she should know her stuff.
