Chelsea Theatre presents Inside Out On Stage’s production of Golden Socks and The Three Bears
Come and join us for this year’s Christmas Pantomine spectacular which gives a terrific, modern twist on the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Follow our cheeky Panto Forest Fairy in this all-singing, all-dancing production as she jumps inside the stories of Pantoland and shakes them up, leaving the audience in heaps of giggles. Be amazed by porridge rapping poems and golden socks galore. As said by baby bear, this Christmas Pantomine will be “just right”!
Written and Directed by Octavia Fearns, our Christmas Panto will be showing on 16th and 17th December at 1:30pm and 3:30pm each day (45 min running time, no interval).
Trigger warning: this performance contains flashing lights and occasional smoke from a smoke machine: this product is a water-based mist and does not present any risk to the audience. If you require more information, please ask a member of staff.
THE GRASSROOTS BATTLE FOR THE NHS AND DEMOCRACY (2020)
Filmmaker John Furse spent 5 years following the battle by ordinary people from across the social and political spectrum to save the NHS from covert takeover by global free-marketeers who have dominated society for over 30 years. It’s a roller-coaster David and Goliath story.
His insider’s revelatory film of a new, non-party NHS grassroots campaign group 999 Call For The NHS’s journey from Britain’s streets to the corridors of Parliamentary power covers the impact on it of the Labour Party’s internal conflicts, the first-ever strike by NHS doctors, the shocks of the Brexit referendum and Trump’s election as US President, and Jeremy Corbyn’s rise from little known MP to leader of the Labour Party and his fall in the 2019 General Election.
It records the long history of American influence on the dismantling of the NHS, which accounts for many of its problems since the onset of Covid, and includes powerful contributions from world-famous physicist Professor Stephen Hawking and actor Dudley Sutton on his deathbed.
“An urgent, compelling film that needs to be seen widely” (The Independent).
“Shocking and eye opening. Watch and worry a lot.” (Jerome Burne, Daily Mail/FT/Guardian journalist)
“It is rare to see a film that explores complex issues and attitudes with such clarity. Extraordinary.” (Archie Tait, ex-ICA Cinema Director)
“Fantastic and very moving.” (John McCarthy, broadcaster & author)
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with John Furse and leading NHS campaigners.
