Welcome to our November Theatre newsletter with thrills, spills and entertainment for the whole family.
Our energetic line up starts on the 2 November with Damned United a football-themed play detailing Brian Clough career as the Leeds football manager, a team he despises.
Then on the 3 November, we have a play as equally energetic, for kids aged 2- 5 years. Combining physical theatre, circus and original music this play is set to teach our little ones that through stories and interaction they can change the world.
To round up our November theatre season we have the acclaimed production Ventoux on 7 November. 2Magpies venture to take on the most fearsome mountain the Tour de France, with a pair of road bikes onstage this promises to be like nothing you have seen before.
The Damned United | Doors open 7.45pm | Tickets £12.50
Originally co-produced with the Leeds Playhouse, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man’s ballet.

Ventoux | Doors open 7.45pm | Tickets £12.50
Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France.
It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the greatest cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions.
