The recording will take place as follows:

Tickets will be priced at £6.00 (this price includes the theatre’s levy and booking fee) and are obtainable from 10am on Thursday 10th May for theatre members and mailing list subscribers. To access earlybird tickets please use the code CLUE2018 or quote it for telephone bookings. Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 11th May.
