Whether battling Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee for the last loo roll or attending the Mad Hatter’s tea party via Zoom, Alice’s socially-distanced adventures are the perfect  antidote to the stay-at-home blues.

Councillor Eileen Callear, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Leisure, Libraries and Culture, said: “It is a shame that events like the carnival and the balloon fiesta could not take place as planned. However we are delighted that we are able to put on a programme of entertainment for all the family during the summer holidays.

“I hope people will bring a cushion and come along and enjoy these excellent shows which take place in unique outdoor settings.

“We would like to reassure all customers that all these events will take place under strict government recommended social distancing guidelines.”

Event description: BSL British Sign Language Interpreted Performances-
Sign-language is a visual means of communicating using gestures, facial expression and body language. Within Britain the most common form of Sign Language is called British Sign Language (BSL). Seats are assigned close to the signer.

About the Performance: Nominated for 5 Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, the sellout international smash hit SIX is the phenomenon everyone is losing their head over!

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.

It’s time they told their story.

Think you know the rhyme, think again…

It is always best to book through our Access phone line 0121 689 1060 when booking assisted performances.

Concessions for patrons with disabilities:

  • £5 off standard price tickets in all seating areas.
