SPOOKY GOINGS ON

Halloween Fancy Dress Hunt! 1st November

CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS 2014

Tickets for this years's Celebration of Christmas go on sale mid-September available from The Grove Theatre, Dunstable. The performance was a huge success last year and the venue is ideal to hear local children singing. Expected to take part are choirs from six Primary schools, The Chiltern School and Luton Mencap with stage performances from Full House Theatre. The event is made possible by a generous discount from Central Bedfordshire Council on theatre hire, and sponsorship from a local developer. Proceeds from the event goes into Houghton Regis Mayor's nominated local charities, which this year are  Dunstable Army Cadets, Houghton Regis Day Centre, and Kingfishers.
