Over 2,000 tickets gone – and there’s still a week to go

June 19, 2018 - Reuben Milne

Richard, Duke of Gloucester would no doubt approve.   It appears that the public would like to see him as king – at least for a little while…  With just a week to go before opening night, we’re delighted to announce that Friday 29th & Saturday 30th June, as well as Saturday July 7 are all but sold out and most other nights now have less than 40 tickets available.  I guess what we’re trying to say is check the weather (looking nice!), check the world cup schedule (flexible at this stage) and get yourself to our ticket page to make sure you don’t miss out.  Long Live King Richard!

Help us win an award for Huntingdon…

May 14, 2018 - Reuben Milne

We are delighted to be announced as one of the finalists for the Muddy Stilettos Awards for the Best Theatre/Arts Venue in Cambridgeshire – and we’d love your help to win it!

Obviously, we’re in very good company (the Cambridge Arts Theatre, Cambridge Junction, The Key Theatre in Peterborough and The Cambridge Picture House are the other finalists) but if you fancy helping us cause a bit of an upset as well as highlighting the thriving theatre scene in Hunts (our friends at Hunts Drama Club have just won the best play at the latest NODA awards for amateur theatre in the area – congrats guys)  then please feel free to vote for us.  You’ll need to be quick – voting closes on Friday – but if you fancy putting in a good word, all you need to do is go to https://cambs.muddystilettos.co.uk/vote.

Thank you.

A horticultural victory for Pericles

September 15, 2017 - Reuben Milne

We found out today that the fine people at ‘Huntingdon in Bloom’ received awards a-plenty for their floral displays this year, one of which was the rather fantastic ‘Pericles’ display which we were proud to sponsor.

Huntingdon In Bloom received a GOLD award under the large town category as well as the Local Authority Award for the best floral displays in East Anglia.

Our congratulations go out to Peter and his team at Huntingdon Town Council for the fantastic work they do and for the huge amount of effort put into Huntingdon’s floral displays and green spaces all year round.

 Let’s see what they can rustle up for Richard III next year!
