The 'Great Train Robbery' will be performed by Scratchworks Theatre at the Guildhall Arts Centre on Tuesday, February 12.

In the early hours of Thursday, August 8,1963, the heist of the century is under way.

Signals are scrambled, phone lines cut and millions of pounds of cash – stolen.

Five days later, the first clues are found, the gang is busted and the rest is history

But what about the ones that got away? Join the four forgotten females as they leave behind their kitchen-sink lives and embark on a madcap adventure of mischief and mayhem.

Using a raucous combination of physical theatre, live music and clowning, Scratchworks will unfold the untold tale of the unlikely female four.

Tickets are priced at £12/£10 concessions/£5 students.

+ There will be fun for all the family with two matinee performances of 'Grandad's Island' at the Guildhall on Saturday, February 16.

Written by Benji Davies and adapted for the stage and directed by Matt Aston, Syd’s favourite person in the whole wide world is Grandad. And Grandad’s favourite person is Syd.

Join the intrepid duo as they head off on a heart-warming adventure filled with songs, laughter and jungles that will change their lives forever.

Sure to provide comfort to young children struggling to understand loss, Davies’s tale is a sensitive and beautiful reminder that our loved ones live on in our memories long after they’re gone.

His award-winning book is brought magically and sensitively to life by the team behind Flat Stanley and Red Riding Hood. Running time is 50 minutes with no interval.

Tickets are priced at £8/£6 concessions/£24 family of four.
