Super Spring in store at The Point and The Berry Theatre

 

Live Arts lovers in Eastleigh can look forward to an exciting programme of events at The Point and The Berry theatres this spring as tickets for shows at both venues go on sale.

The Point

Strictly Come Dancing’s strictest judge Craig Revel Horwood promises a fab-u-lous evening when his his All Balls and Glitter Tour arrives. For another great night out you can socialise at the Stick of Rock Cabaret Club, presented in a traditional set-up or belly laugh at Omid Djalili and new monthly Comedy Networks, and eat, drink and compete at Board Game Café

Dance and theatre treats include the acclaimed James Cousins Company with The Next Generation, including Hampshire Youth Dance Company’s premiere of a new piece, Folk Dance Remixed’s Hope, Sophie Ross’ new comedy musical Swings and Roundabouts, and Johnny Donahoe’s warm and uplifting Forgiveness.

The Berry

The Berry Theatre in Hedge End has lots of fun planned for half-term and beyond. The Long Nose Puppets bring the heart-warming and funny The Hug, whilst Zoo Co’s Messy, created in partnership with the ADHD Foundation, is performed by a deaf and hearing cast with Sign Supported English. April brings The Highland Joker with The Bubble Show.

Laughs are guaranteed with the visits of comedians Shaparak Khorsandi, Kerry Godliman, Aurie Styla, Lou Sanders and Matt Forde, and at the performance of New Old Friends’ riotous whodunnit Crimes Camera Action.

The Point and The Berry Theatre are owned and operated by Eastleigh Borough Council.

Councillor Tonia Craig, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Social Policy, said:

Cultural activities are so important to wellbeing and it is great that, after such a difficult period, The Point and The Berry Theatre have been able to pull together such a fantastic and varied programme that offers something for everyone – and features some big names.

Charlotte Hall, Creative Director at the venues, said:

We’re so excited about our Spring season and all the opportunities for enjoyment it offers with top quality entertainment, big names and a brilliant mix of art-forms.

Our teams continue to work hard to make visiting our buildings safe and welcoming, so there has never been a better time to make the most of the return of live performance.
