This spectacular musical tells the true story of Yorkshire’s own CALENDAR GIRLS. The death of a much-loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic calendar to raise money for a local hospital and charity. Overturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman expectedly into flower.
The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.
This heart-warming and hilarious story, combined with Gary Barlow’s stirring music with unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman. As The Times reported “It is pure gold”
