Tuesday 23 April 204 - St George's Day!
Our favourite dinner theatre - The Mill at Sonning Theatre, Sonning Eye, Reading

THE CALANDAR GIRLS will make you feel good … in fact it wil make you feel great! Whether you have already seen the show, or not, it’s worth seeing Calendar Girls over and over again!

It’s St George’s Day. Spring will have sprung and it will be a wonderful Charity Gala Night at The Mill  ………. so why not treat yourself to an afternoon and evening out – with a delicious dinner in great company!  

We always have such a wonderful time at this delightful theatre, so we’re back in the Spring for something to lift your spirits into the summer.

This heartwarming and hilarious play by Tim Firth is based on a true story and the hit 2003 film.

When Annie’s husband dies of leukemia, she and her best friend Chris decide to raise funds for the local hospital. Despite raised eyebrows from the local community they create a calendar featuring themselves and their friends from the Women’s Institute…in tastefully nude poses.
As they embark on their fundraising journey over the seasons, the friends discover a newfound sense of confidence and sisterhood, breaking free from societal expectations of middle age. And as the word begins to spread, these Calendar Girls begin to turn heads and capture hearts around the world.

Destined to make you laugh, make you cry and make you blush! CALENDAR GIRLS is a glorious celebration of friendship, community, and the power of ordinary people to make a difference. Presented with a mixture of fun, laughter, Excitement and comedy to make for a memorable evening.

A delicious two-course dinner with tea/coffee is included and served before the show. 

If you have never experienced intimate setting of The Mill at Sonning,  you’re in for a pleasant surprise! It’s Solent Events’ favourite dinner theatre, located in a tranquil position in the countryside beside the Thames at Sonning Eye, adjacent to George Clooney’s house. George and his wife Amal are patrons of the theatre and have hugely supported them in the past two years and are often seen in the audience at the Mill.

On arrival, we will be dropped off in the car park, right in front of the theatre – so there is very little walking  – in fact,  approximately 20 yards! A delicious 2-course hot & cold buffet meal with tea & coffee will be served in the restaurant on the first floor,  where the theatre is also situated. (NB. if you find stairs a difficulty, a small lift is available on request).

Unfortunately, like everything else, prices at The Mill ahve risen slightly for 2024, but we’re still great value and this venue is so special. As they say, ‘you get what you pay for’, so it’s definitely worth it! We’re sure you will be as enthralled as we are by this delightful theatre!

The limited number of tickets available will sell fast, so it’s advisable to book as soon as possible, especially as Club-21 Travel Club Members have a discount if booked before Friday 05 January 2024 …. AND we have the very BEST seats in the theatre – again!
