Live & Local theatre at Alfreton

kings of the cloth of gold flyrARTSBEAT THEATRE: In response to requests for theatre in Alfreton, the town’s business club and Alfreton Grange Arts College are working together with Live & Local  to do just that.

The first production is Kings of Cloth of Gold presented by Angus and Ross Theatre Company
 which is on tomorrow evening at 7pm at Alfreton Grange Arts College.

The year is 1520. In this brand new family comedy, Henry VIII of England meets Frances I of France at the most magnificent tournament ever held: the ‘Field of Cloth of Gold’. (So many pavilions were made of costly gold cloth that it became the byword for extravagance).

These two kings compete to outdo each other in displays of wealth, wit, feasting and sporting prowess.

Each king is proud, intelligent, and the epitome of chivalry. But who will eventually win this battle of vanity?

With Emanuel Brierley as King Frances I and Dominic Goodwin as King Henry VIII, this sparkling comedy from the Angus and Ross small touring theatre company based in north Yorkshire, reunites two actors whose humour and onstage chemistry has gained standing ovations across the national touring circuit.

Go along and enjoy a fun, witty and lively performance.

Tickets are available from the box office at Alfreton Grange Arts College at  £8 full price or £6 concession.
