The Seagull Theatre in Pakefield will host a range of entertainment in the coming weeks.

Tonight (Friday, July 20) at 7pm guests can come along and enjoy a variety of different shows and films though the years – including Annie, Matilda, The Jungle Book and much more – as the Wiggle and Giggle youth theatre group, for children aged from five and above, take to the stage. Tickets £5.

On Saturday, July 21, at 7pm, the Seagull’s annual Youth Charity Concert takes place.

Some of Lowestoft’s talented youngsters will grace the stage as they host and perform in this delightful variety show.

Tickets £6/ £3 (children)

The Seagull’s regular platform for poets and songwriters, New Words: Fresh Voices, returns on Sunday, July 22 at 7.30pm.

New voices are always welcome to join this friendly, thoughtful and frequently humorous event.

Next Friday, July 27, at 7.30pm, Mustard Theatre present ‘One man, two governors’, by Richard Bean. Set in Brighton in 1963, this classic comedy features a man who, by mistake, finds himself working for both a gangster and a criminal on the run.

In a world of extortion and a bit of romance too, he must at all costs keep his two governors apart - does he succeed? Tickets £8.

On Saturday, July 28, at 7.30pm, there will be a night of pure rock nostalgia with ‘Purple Jimi - Hendrix Tribute and Forever Sabbath’. Two great bands guaranteed to keep heads banging the whole night long. Tickets £10.

After 35 glorious years, The Seagull Theatre Club will be changing its name - to the Red Herring Theatre Company.

The group’s final production as The Seagull Theatre Club will be ‘God of Carnage’, written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hamilton.

God of Carnage will be performed three times on Thursday, Friday and Saturday August 2 to August 4 at 7.30pm at the Seagull Theatre.
