World premiere tour of a new comedy by Kate Bramley with songs and music by Jez Lowe.
Design by Catherine Dawn
From the great age of the steamers and through the heyday of the British seaside resorts the old Palace dance hall stood proudly on the pier front attended by the greatest of all attractions, The Mechanical Elephant. But the relentless tides have chipped away at the coast and the mighty Elephant Rock that gave the headland its name has seemingly walked off overnight.
Come and join us for a night of comic capers from a family who are trying to keep the Palace doors on, and open, as they delve into the complicated family history of music hall owners spanning 100 years and 5000 miles to the elephant-filled grasslands of Sri Lanka.

The talk is packed with amusing anecdotes, colourful characters and inspiring stories from her two decades spent farming at Ravenseat, all delivered with Amanda's trademark energy, humour and charm.

Amanda Owen is a shepherdess, farmer's wife, mother to nine children, a passionate photographer and Sunday Times bestselling author.

Home is Ravenseat, a 2000 acre hill farm at the head of Swaledale, North Yorkshire, one of the highest and most remote places in England. In November 2018, the Owens became the stars of their very own Channel 5 TV series 'Our Yorkshire Farm', which became the channel's highest rating factual show of the year, attracting an average of 2.2 million viewers per week. Amanda has also appeared regularly on Countrywise and The Dales.
