Love theatre? Then come to Tideswell Cinema at the George Inn where our live broadcasts this month feature a feast of Shakespeare, David Hare and world-class opera.

On Wednesday March 4, from the Royal Shakespeare Company, we have Love’s Labour’s Won (or Much Ado About Nothing) – the sequel to Love’s Labour’s Lost which delighted a packed audience at its live showing in February.

Though the live broadcast is fully-booked, we are showing encores of both Love’s Labour’s Lost (Sun March 8, 6.30pm) and Love’s Labour’s Won (Sun March 15, 6.30pm). The plays are set before and after the First World War, adding poignancy to the witty lightheartedness of these productions.

On Monday March 23 at 7pm we have a recording of last year’s Hamlet at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, with TV’s Maxine Peake in the main role. This is an innovative, thought-provoking production and there’s a second chance to see it on Sunday April 12.

These broadcasts are an ideal run-up to Tideswell Community Players’ next play, Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (May 21-23), in which two minor characters from Hamlet try to work out where they fit in to the mighty plot – with much humour and spectacle along the way.

And on Wednesday April 1, we return to the Royal Opera House for a live broadcast of The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny – Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s satire on consumerism – starring Anne Sofie von Otter conducted by Mark Wigglesworth.

Plays are £10, opera £15 (£12.50 concessions). Book through or 01298 872993. Cheques (to Tideswell Cinema) may be left at Tideswell Stores or posted to Tideswell Cinema, c/o 1 Manchester Rd, Tideswell, SK17 8LL. Please write name/date of production on back of cheque. More information on

All performances are upstairs at The George Inn – you can book pre-cinema meals direct on 01298 871382.
