Eleanor Conway Walk of Shame

Book Tickets

Friday 10 Nov 201720:00 Book Now

Some people talk the talk but don’t walk the walk, one person that puts her money where her mouth is, is comedian Eleanor Conway.  Her debut stand up show ‘Walk of Shame’, premiered at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival to critical acclaim and is currently on a huge nationwide UK tour.


Ferocious clubber and party girl Eleanor Conway has always been a woman of extremes; she partied around the world as a music journalist, ran off to Asia to work for The Triads, made hard-core porn and Tinder’d her way through most of London. Now sober from alcohol and substances she’s failing to find moderation and meaning. This critically acclaimed comedy debut is about sex, sobriety and the modern addict, and following a sell-out 30 date national tour it returns to Edinburgh Festival before coming to the Nottingham Arts Theatre.

Thursday 16 Nov 201719:00 Book Now

Shakespeare Schools Foundation uses the unique power of Shakespeare to transform lives. We are the world’s largest youth drama festival, enabling over 1,000 schools to bring their interpretations of Shakespeare to 138 professional theatres across the UK.

Being part of SSF is a life-changing opportunity for young people to gain professional theatre experience and to perform in front of a paying audience alongside their peers from other schools. It may well be the first time in a professional theatre building for some of the students and indeed the audience members.

Each performance night aims to be a celebration of the young people who take part; to bring a community together and to raise the profile of the arts in your region.

We hope you enjoy the Festival.

Claude the contract cleaner is employed by the local theatre; she received a vision from God to write about Mary and Joseph prior to the birth of Jesus.  Claude informs her fellow workers about her written play gaining an insight of how she sees her Saviour Jesus Christ; her fellow workers see a different side to Claude who takes them on a journey where they themselves also become part of the play.  A musical play with town sellers, village gossiper seeking to marry the handsome bachelor Joseph the carpenter.  Joy to the World includes a singing Herod obsessed with authority, a Paige scared of his own shadow, three wise men with no sense of directions along with Shepherds.  This musical is a worship experience bringing to life the visions of a simple cleaner who writes from the book of Luke. Jesus Christ born to save, he is the Joy to the world.
