The show covers an incredibly successful decade for Dusty featuring the songs ‘I Only Want to be With You’, ‘You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me’, ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, ‘I Just Don’t Know What to do With Myself’ and ‘You Don’t Own Me’.

Supported by the glamorous Shades, the soulful Dusty Springfield is honoured and her personality brought back to the stage in a great night out that takes you back to the era of peroxide blonde bouffant hair.

About Macmillan coffee mornings...
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. We ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone we raised over £27 million and together we can make this another successful year.
We understand how cancer can affect people’s whole lives – health, money, family, job; everything. And, after more than 100 years of caring, we understand that the most important thing is to treat people as individuals, not patients.
So we take the time to understand the support people need to live their lives as fully as they can. From the moment of diagnosis and whenever we’re most needed, we’re here to help people find their best way through. Our help is totally focused on each individual person, so everyone receives the support that’s best for them.
NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE
Broadcast live from London’s West End, this new production stars Ian McKellen in an ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a king, the other his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.
Tara is a housewife in suburban London who's raising two young children while married to an overworked, self-absorbed husband. In desperate need of a change, Tara makes the bold decision to leave everything behind and buy a one-way ticket to Paris. Her newfound freedom and journey of self-discovery soon give way to the realization that walking out on life isn't as simple as one imagined.
Starring Gemma Arterton and Dominic Cooper.
