Gladstone's Bag present a programme of comedy films from the silent era with music and sound effects, featuring the most famous silent clowns:- Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Fatty Arbuckle and Laurel & Hardy. Don't miss this opportunity to experience these films the way audiences first saw them in this venue which first featured the "cinematograph" in 1896. With live musical accompaniment and sound effects by the fabulous Gladstone’s Bag - what better way to watch them than in the very music hall where Stan Laurel’s career began.

Unfortunately from now on we will no longer be allowing photography at our evening shows, as we will be engaging the services of a professional photographer to take pictures of our events.

We will still be allowing photography of our daytime shows, with the exception of our junior acts, provided the photographer has completed model release forms from the performers.



Tickets for all our shows are sold through Universe, unless otherwise stated. 


Please note that it is our policy to provide refunds 30 days in advance of the event, and no nearer.
