There’s an evening of cabaret entertainment with a wartime feel at Hitchin’s Market Theatre next Wednesday night.
The 1940s night at the Sun Street venue will feature iconic songs from the period performed by Market Theatre stalwarts Kelly Bibb, Charley Durrant and Pippa Johnson.
The team have performed a number of different reviews over the years, showcasing songs from eras including the 1960s and the 1980s, but the 1940s has always gone down best with eager audiences.
Tickets are £12 each from 01462 433553 or online at www.markettheatre.co.uk.
In a busy week for the theatre, next Thursday night sees familiar Radio 4 voice and TV panel show regular Lucy Porter headline the monthly Mostly Comedy stand-up night.
