Something for everyone at Whitby Pavilion, say entertainment bosses

The new management team behind Whitby Pavilion has unveiled a spring programme with a range of high profile shows and promising "something for everyone." 

Jane Eyre: lined up 
for March.
According to Sheffield International Venues, which took over management of the venue, the January to April schedule offers an eclectic mix of music, theatre and comedy and is the most varied in several years.

Listings include Keep in CASH, a celebration of the music of Johnny Cash on 15 February, Hull Truck Theatre’s adaptation of the Charlotte Bronte novel, Jane Eyre, taking place on 9 March and singer, songwriter, comedian and author Mike Harding’s Me, a Guitar and Some More Daft Stuff’ show on 12 April.

Other shows include the Ugly Duckling from the Northern Ballet, one of the UK’s premier ballet companies, and, following sell-out shows at Edinburgh Festival and London’s Soho Theatre, Chris Ramsey brings his Feeling Lucky show.

MOST VARIED
Helen Broadbent, general manager of Whitby Pavilion, said: “The exciting range of shows we have at the start of 2013 is the most varied to line up at the venue for a number of years, with something to suit every audience.

“We have a host of productions by the various local theatre companies and it’s been great meeting them all – they have such a passion and commitment to performing.
