    Theatre Royal’s 150th anniversary season is unveiled

    Two Nottingham chorus girls, who trod the boards together at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in the 1940s and ’50s, were among those who celebrated the launch of the theatre’s 150th birthday celebrations.

    The two friends, Cherise Crewe (née Hutton) and Gillian Haywood (née Widdowson), joined local dignitaries, theatre representatives and actor Christopher Biggins, who plays Widow Twankey in this year’s pantomime Aladdin, to remember the theatre’s rich history – and to look forward to a new programme of shows.

    Dimitri, star of the French DJ scene is playing in Nottingham on bank holiday Sunday 5th April, and you could be going along to see him. Enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to see Dimitri live at Riverbank Bar and Kitchen.

    It was DJing that gave 36-year-old Dimitri his start more than a decade ago, when the European radio station CFM hired him to mix records on the air. Because of what he describes as a lack of dance remixers in France, his career in radio led to his being asked to rework tracks for various artists, among them Björk, New Order, and the Brand New Heavies.
