Band of HM Royal Marines, Rich Hall, Children’s Easter Party & History of Rock

THEMemorial Theatre has a busy line-up of music and entertainment for the coming months.

Saturday 14th March 7.30pm – The Band of HM Royal Marines. In 2020 the Frome Royal Naval Association celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Royal Marines Band concerts at the Memorial Theatre.

Organisers say, “This fundraising event has supported various activities in the area including local Sea Cadet unit TS Achilles. This has been possible because of the vision and hard work of one man, Shipmate Ken Ring; we are determined to continue with the gift he left behind. 

“We invite the people of Frome who have supported us over the last 24 years to join us again and bring along a friend to experience this wonderful evening of music, pomp and humour.” Tickets £18.

Friday 3rd April 8pm – Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe. Rich Hall’s comedy/music locomotive keeps on rollin’. Ever-evolving, ever-changing, Rich’s combination of keen acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism is a “win-win” (Guardian), as sold out crowds across the UK have attested. Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare: Barrow-in-Furness for example.

Rich’s acclaimed BBC4 documentaries (most recently Rich Hall’s Red Menace) and his Radio 4 series Election Break-down have established a whole new legion of followers. He’s also a stalwart of QI and Have I Got News For You. But seeing the Hoedown is a whole different experience. Gut-busting, rib-tickling, toe-tapping, and muck-kicking, Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe covers the full anatomical spectrum.

Strictly 14 years plus – Parental Guidance, likely to be swearing and adult content. Tickets £17.

Bar will be open for refreshments and light snacks. Tickets are £8 per child, adults are free. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets from our box office.
