"One way or another you've had quite a full life haven't you? A house full of ghosts then? No wonder you look slightly haunted. Like a character out of Edgar Allen Poe. Beware!" A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over 60 years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen. From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates' romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, the love and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy.
A musical based on the Bertie Wooster stories. Originally a flop when it was launched in the 1970's it made a successful re-appearance in 1996. American Express Award for Best Musical - winner 1996. Disaster threatens when Bertie Wooster's banjo mysteriously disappears just before a charity recital. Time to call for the ever-dependable Jeeves! Bertie soon finds himself involved in all manner of strange goings on in this tangled tale of mistaken identity, romantic trysts and raucous escapades.
Theatre Voices Ambleside present The Christmas Gift - a heart-warming, family friendly show that truly captures the kind of Christmas we all long to have.

Who will find the Magic Key? Can you activate the reindeer dust? Where are the Christmas elves? Who can light the Christmas Tree? Even old Scrooge makes an appearance. This really is The Night Before Christmas!
This pitch perfect tribute to Fawlty Towers starts as the audience waits to be seated then hurtles along for two hours of fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre. With only a third of the show scripted, everything stays fresh as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up some madcap mayhem and a three-course meal - with the audience playing the part of their restaurant diners. Do expect 'a rip-roaringly hilarious night out' (This Is London) with all the best gags... but don't expect a herd of giant wildebeest, and certainly don't mention the war!
From a miserable childhood controlled by uncaring adults, Jane Eyre learns to rely on her own resources and determination to make her way in the world.
