Diary of a Theatre Manager – Episode 20

Will Gareth open the flood Gates?

In the last 24 hours, two new events have gone on sale. Flawless, the Britain’s Got Talent dance troupe and Gareth Gates are both coming to The Broadway! For dance fans, you will have to wait until October before Flawless are in the building but for fans of Gareth, he will be with us on 30th June.

This week has been busy with planning events, discussing possible transfers and working on the possibility of a large event coming to The Broadway in November. Watch this space!

While looking into booking Gareth Gates, we came across a number of 80s, 90s and 00s acts that are available for concerts and events. We are thinking of bringing a few in on one bill here at The Broadway. If you have any suggestions who you would like to see, do let us know.

One of the events that has been agreed, there will be a staged concert of a musical coming to the venue in the autumn. The show will see local people working with a professional musical director and director to bring the show to life. More details will be announced shortly.Read More

Dinners to remember, nights to remember…

Half term has arrived and schools are breaking up. Soon it will be Easter and another school holiday will upon us. Have you any plans? If not, never fear! I can help with a little forward planning so you don’t get caught unawares again. For this week I have booked in two shows, one for February half term and one for Easter… both in 2019! Alright, so it won’t solve your problem with what to do next week but it’s always worth thinking ahead.

If you are looking for a small half term treat next week, you can pop along to Sundays here at The Broadway and treat yourself (or be treated) to a fabulous lunch. Food is served Wednesdays and Sundays over lunch time. (I did have a little taster and I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed).

Currently, The Broadway Suite is playing host to Revellers and their play Sisters? which had a great opening night last night and is on tonight and tomorrow. There are still a few seats left but do book in advance to ensure you get your fish and chips!

This weekend we have two very different events on. On Sunday in the main house we have Lithuanian stand up comedy, and in The Broadway Suite, Peterborough Jazz Club will be holding their first event. We are delighted to be welcoming them into the building and are pleased they have chosen us to be their new home.Read More

What else has been happening at ‘Broadway Towers’? This Sunday we have the grand opening of Sundays. The restaurant has made the move into The Broadway Suite and will be serving up its famous food on Sundays and Wednesdays. They will also be providing the catering for events and parties here at our venue throughout the year (those of you who came along to the Funhouse Comedy have already tasted it!)

Next week we have a world premier here at the theatre. Local group, Revellers, are staging their new work Sisters? in The Broadway Suite. And, if seeing a theatrical first wasn’t enough, the ticket also includes a fish and chip supper!Read More
