WINSTON’S Wish is that as many people as possible go along to Trestle Arts Theatre tomorrow night to watch a viewing of the classic film The Commitments.

It is being shown by two local women who are doing the Great North Run in September to raise funds for Winston’s Wish, a charity which helps children who have lost a parent or sibling to come to terms with their bereavement.

The film is being shown at 7.30pm and the ticket price of £12.50 includes not just the film but also a champagne reception and complimentary nibbles.

A raffle with prizes ranging from a restaurant voucher, to a signed Saracens shirt and two tickets for the London Philharmonic Orchestra performance at the Royal Albert Hall will also be held.

Tickets can be booked online at www.trestle.org.uk, phone the box office on 01727 850950 or email kirsten.whitehous@yahoo.co.uk

Next Thursday, June 3, sees the arts theatre in Russet Drive play host to Prodigal Theatre’s collaboration with playwright Andrew G. Marshall to put on Caruso and the Quake.

The performance chronicles the life of Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and his escape from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. In order to return home to his family, Caruso had to escape his collapsing hotel room, cross a city swept by fire and fight his way past the military on the only ferry out of town.

The show combines story telling with live opera from Puccini and Rossini and begins at 7.30pm. Tickets at £11 for adults, £9 concessions and families £36 can be obtained on the online address and box office number above.
