At 7.30pm in the Joseph Wright Hall the company is performing Tea with Oscar Wilde where the audience is cordially invited to the 1890s where you’ll be “Wilde” about who Oscar has on his chaise longue.

The popular modern chat show is reimagined for the Victorian age, hosted by the acclaimed wit of the era, Oscar Wilde. Following the now familiar format, guests include a selection of some of the ‘celebrities’ of the day.  Packed with gossip, song and humour – and a few surprises – this light-hearted performance invites the audience to experience the 1890s wittiest “chit chat” show.

Tickets cost £9, concessions £8
