It's Christmas Eve in the Bunker household and stress levels are rising. Belinda wants peace and goodwill, Uncle Harvey wants peace and quiet to watch the telly, Phyllis wants another drink, and Rachel just wants to be loved! The arrival of Clive (a young author), and an incompetent puppet show from the hapless doctor Bernard, sets the scene for a night of comedy of the darkest variety.

Before you start to think about decking the halls with boughs of holly, and trying to remember the names of all Santa's reindeer, why not join us for a Yuletide comedy treat from one of UK's best loved playwrights - Alan Ayckbourn?



As always, your committee is busy working on a wide variety of tasks: from researching new advertising avenues, to considering options for future productions.

An audit of keys and key holders is another one of the tasks currently being undertaken. If you find that you have a set of keys that the committee may not already be aware of, please use this opportunity to let us know.
