Theatre Trip with free time in Canterbury
June 17, 2020
Explore the Cathedral City of Canterbury
With so much to do and see in Canterbury we will leave Dorking at midday, arriving in time to peruse the Wednesday market. There’s also the opportunity to take a boat ride on the river or visit The Canterbury Tales attraction (local charges apply on the day). Alternatively enjoy one or more of the many churches or museums. There are of course a plethora of cafes and eateries as well as substantial options when it comes to shopping! Canterbury’s Whitefriars brings you the best in fashion and lifestyle brands with popular high street names while the more historic areas of the King’s Mile, Westgate and St Dunstan’s offer specialist and independent shops and boutiques. And we haven’t even mentioned the Cathedral! World-famous as the site of the shrine of Thomas Becket and the seat of the Archbishop, the spectacular building houses many stunning features, including a Romanesque crypt, a perpendicular nave and beautiful medieval stained glass windows. Take time to enjoy a meal and drink before ending the day at the Marlowe Theatre for the evening performance of Some Mother’s Do ‘Av ‘Em.
Following unprecedented response to the 2018 hit, receiving twenty one 5-star reviews, the new stage version of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is back by popular demand and is touring the UK next year. We will take advantage of it visiting the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, giving us time to explore the beautiful Cathedral City whilst we are there.
Hilarious mishaps and DIY disasters are bringing the house down, quite literally, as Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em hits the road with Joe Pasquale (New Faces, I’m a Celebrity, Spamalot, The Producers) as the lovable accident-prone Frank Spencer. Susie Blake (Coronation Street, The Victoria Wood Show, Blithe Spirit) stars as his disapproving Mother-in-Law and Sarah Earnshaw as his long-suffering wife Betty.
Betty has exciting news for Frank, but he’s preoccupied by possible newfound fame as a magician. With guests arriving for dinner and crossed wires all round, priceless misunderstandings are on the menu.
Based on the 1970s classic TV comedy by Ray Allen and directed by the award-winning Guy Unsworth, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is the ultimate feel-good night out, washed down with lashings of nostalgia and Mother’s prune wine.
