Calendar Girls


THE most successful play ever to tour the UK will take to the stage in Bristol next week - and we are offering you the chance to win tickets.

Calendar Girls will bare all at The Bristol Hippodrome from Monday until May 12.

The show has taken more at the box office than the original film and the award-winning producers have announced that this will be the farewell tour before the amateur rights are released in September.

The original Calendar Girl herself, Lynda Bellingham, returns to the show with Jan Harvey, Sue Holderness, Camilla Dallerup, Deena Payne, Lisa Riley, June Watson and Ruth Madoc, with Joe McGanna as John and Kevin Sacre as Lawrence the photographer.

A group of ordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, sparks a global phenomenon by persuading one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference.

As interest snowballs, the Calendar Girls find themselves revealing more than they had ever planned.

The stage version the story has been adapted by Tim Firth from his smash-hit film.

The production opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in September 2008 and has subsequently toured the UK, breaking box office records at every theatre it has visited.

Tickets, priced £12.50-30, are available via

The Mercury has teamed up with The Bristol Hippodrome to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of top price tickets for the 7.30pm performance on Monday.
