Because of the layout of this weekend’s local Beer Festival we have had to re-configure some of the seating in the auditorium which may affect you.  If you have bought a ticket for a seat in the Raised Centre Stalls

M 12 – 23 to T 12 - 23,

X 12 – 14, 21 - 23

W 12 – 14, 21 - 23

please be advised that your seats are still available but they are no longer raised. Because of this, we have reissued those tickets and given you a raked seat in the first few rows of the balcony.  If you wish to sit in the balcony instead of the stalls, please go to Box Office when you arrive to collect your re-issued tickets.  Your original tickets are still valid, so you can still sit in the stalls if you wish as we do not anticipate any major sightline issues. Anyone who has booked an aisle seat in the stalls will have been reissued with an aisle seat in the balcony. 

Sorry for the confusion, due to circumstances beyond our control.  Please call the Box Office on 01424 229111 if you need clarification or talk to us this evening before you go in.


Award-winning writer Alan Bennett is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner and Olivier Award-winning actress Frances de la Tour, with whom he worked on The History Boys and The Habit of Art.

People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one’s house. But with the park a jungle and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy (Frances de la Tour) wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.

Alan Bennett is one of Britain’s most celebrated playwrights, and the much anticipated People is the sixth of his plays to have its premiere at the National Theatre. Following its original run at the National Theatre, The History Boys transferred to Broadway, winning the Tony Award for Best Play in 2006, and toured internationally before being turned into a film, again directed by Nicholas Hytner and with a cast including Frances de la Tour.

Bennett and Hytner also collaborated on the award-winning play and film The Madness of King George and their last stage production, The Habit of Art, was broadcast as part of National Theatre Live in 2010.

Doors open at 6.30pm. Everyone to be seated by 7pm. Full bar will be available from door time prior to screen times.

12A u12’s must be accompanied by an adult.
