Chef Show a triumph
In collaboration with Spot on Lancashire, The Centre hosted The Chef Show n February 9th – a fusion of comedy and cooking. This was a hugely successful sell out event with an enthusiastic and appreciative audience – apparently the highest attendance of The Chef Show’s Lancashire tour, after the Dukes Theatre
The feedback from those attending was very positive and amongst the many comments received, were:
“Razor sharp story telling. Beautifully observed and expertly crafted. Hilarious multi-roled brilliance. Racially inclusive.”
“An excellent show that should be shown in every town!”
“Excellent: interactive, personal. Covered some challenging issues in a great fun way. We can all laugh at ourselves”
The actors also commented favourably on the very warm welcome they had received from the organising team at The Centre. This included the stage building (Carl), delicious cakes served in the Centre’s popular Coffee Shop (Pat Richardson) and main organiser and co-ordinator (Centre Manager Maureen ).
The actors stayed on after the show to share with the Centre volunteers a “Staff Supper” of chilli and rice, prepared by Jim Lively. Staff Supper is served in Indian Restaurants at the end of the working day.
Any profits made from this event will contribute to the refurbishment fund at The Centre.
