About the show:

Do you need a jolt of fun and energy to distract you from everyday life? Well, Cygnet Players have just the thing! Join the ‘man in chair’ for this show within a show, and transport yourself back to the world of a 1920s musical, crammed full of every cliché, gag and gimmick from the golden age of theatre. A world of showgirl starlets, gangsters, mistaken identity, a tipsy chaperone... and what musical would be complete without a wedding... or two?! As the show’s main character so appropriately describes it, this show is the perfect antidote to “the dreary horrors of the real world” – and guarantees you a night of light-hearted entertainment and laughter!


----- The Alfred Hitchcock London Locations Walk
By Street Market Blog

Film Historian Sandra Shevey segues into the 12th year of her walk around Alfred Hitchcock`s London film locations.  In addition to the disclosure of arcane film sites Sandra runs through some of the director`s original storyboards and plays `soundbites` from her own 1972 interview with the film director.

`He had just finished filming `Frenzy` which had opened in London and I had recently seen when I was there.  It is very, very eerie to visit a Covent Garden location and stand within the frame of a shot about which he is talking on tape.  Some little has changed in Covent Garden, this is still possible`, says Sandra, age 66.

The walk which profiles locations from 3 important films in the Hitchcock oeuvre (`Frenzy`, `The Man Who Knew Too Much` 1956, and `The Paradine Case`) runs weekly on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

The start time is 11am and the walk runs for 3 hours.

25 excl Travelcard and/or breakfast
