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.

Dorking Halls

Opened in 1931, mainly to act as a venue for the Leith Hill Music Competition, Dorking Halls was the property of the festival until WWII during which they were commandeered by the Meat Marketing Board and the army. In 1946, the halls were thriving, with community events being held there, including flower shows, scout meetings and dances. They were refurbished in 1997 and the venue became a location for theatre, comedy and music, as well as films.

The halls are located in the centre of town and there is parking available at the side and rear of the venue as well as opposite in the council offices car park.
