Festive Frivolities And Divertisements


A tradition, which is fast becoming an essential part of Christmas in Thanet, is the Sarah Thorne Festive Production. This year we are pulling out all the stops and have for your delectation and delight: FESTIVE FRIVOLITIES AND DIVERTISEMENTS. This will be a chance to envelope yourself in the glory of Christmases past, with a return to the elegance and refinement of the supper club!

Once inside the Memorial Theatre you will be transported back in time: hat check girls to take your coats, table seating with mince pies and nibbles, mulled wine served at the bar, plus of course cigarette girls selling confectionery at your table. A world of courtesy, elegance and rollicking good fun.

Entertainment will be provided by the cream of Thanet Artists, performing comedy sketches, magic and songs. Eminent local artists performing will include Miss. Lisa Payne, Mr. Steven Todd and Mr. Bill Harris recreating their Jeeves and Wooster roles, magic and prestidigitation provided by Alan Wright with support acts by Gordon Eyles, Leah Lawry-Johns, Andrew Nolan, Charle Evans and pianist Wilmot O’Higgins. Your compere will be the vivacious local authoress Jane Wenham-Jones.

This is something a little different to the traditional pantomime that the whole family from grandparents to grandchildren will enjoy. We are encouraging the audience to dress up in any style from a bygone era and we will be awarding a nightly prize to the best dressed!

We will also be holding a nightly raffle to promote and support a deserving local charity. These will be, on the 28th Thanet Owls, on the 29th Leukaemia Research, on the 30th Thanet Hospice and on the 31st The Animal Sanctuary.

Seating will be limited so advance booking is very advisable; this is one Christmas treat you don’t want to miss!

Performances will be nightly at 6.30pm on December 28th, 29th & 30th, with a special New Years Eve Matinee at 2.30pm Members tickets are £9 adult, £7 children and a family ticket at £28. Non-members tickets are £10 adults, £8 children and a family ticket at £32. Seats are bookable in advance from the theatre Box Office on 0845 2626263. Whilst the 24-hour booking rule applies to non-members of Sarah Thorne, seats can be reserved by telephone or e-mail on to avoid disappointment.
