Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Wednesday 3rd March
Julian Clary at the Civic Theatre
Julian Clary’s "Lord of the Mince" UK tour comes to Chelmsford. "I have done for mincing what Michael Flatley did for Irish dancing. I’m 50. The shame of it. This will be an intimate evening – a celebration, no less, of my twenty-five years in the camp spotlight: how I got there and why I refuse to leave. Come and see me before they put me in a home for tired old knackers."
"Lots of camp smut and double entendres – he was side-splittingly hilarious" - Daily Mirror
Starts 7.45pm at Chelmsford Civic Theatre (Fairfield Road car park, accessed via Coval Lane).
Tickets are £20. Please send payment to Dave P.
