A choir’s welcome return to the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield starts a busy period of entertainment at the venue.

On Friday (October 13) the Rogues Chorus Shanty Choir is back by popular demand with ‘Shanties, Sails and Smugglers Tales 2.’ Celebrating the heritage, culture and legacy of Lowestoft’s bygone seafaring communities with performances of the music they left, this show is likely to be very popular. Tickest cost £8/£6.

On Saturday, October 14 at 7.30pm, The Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company present Anglian Mist, by Tim Lane and Cordelia Spence. Inspired by the desolate beauty and strange structures of Orford Ness, this thrilling drama is set in the days of the Cold War. Tickets £10/£8.

On Sunday, at 2.30pm, for the first time at the Seagull a ‘one-dog’ show - ‘Once upon a Labrador’ - is presented. This show features Alfie the Labrador, with Charles Garland doing all the talking. Tickets £10.

On Friday, October 20, at 7.30pm, ‘The ELO Encounter’ will hit the Seagull stage. Not only flawlessly recreating the wonderful music of ELO, this is a spectacular live show from start to finish. Tickets £12/£10.

On Saturday, October 21, at 2pm and again at 5pm, Tigerlilys Productions present ‘Once upon a Fairytale’. Featuring favourite fairytale characters, this engaging show is great fun for all the family. Tickets £6 (children) £4 (adults).

On Sunday, October 22, at 7.30pm, the Seagull is delighted to welcome back star of London’s West End, Rob Houchen for a live and unplugged show with special guests. This will feature great classic songs from musical theatre as well as some of Rob’s own material. This is a rare opportunity to hear a great young star. Last time Rob performed the tickets sold out very quickly - so don’t miss out. Tickets £15/£13.
