Bloxwich: men in tights!


These are serious theatrical artistes. Stop laughing at the back…

I see that Glen, Dave and all the folk behind the wonderful Cart Before the Horse community theatre company have a great Christmas production on this weekend at the Bookmark Theatre, Bloxwich, which is situated in the new library. These are the folk, you’ll remember, who have been doing such wonderful work with street theatre, mumming and the enigmatic Bayards Colts.

They are putting on a performance of Robin Hood and the French Magician, written by company member Dave Calcutt, whose work his hugely entreating and very, very funny. This will be an excellent show put on by great local people.

Shows are this Friday 13th Deccember 2013 (evening only), Saturday 14th December  2013 (matinee and evening), and Sunday 15th December 2013 (matinee only). Doors open from 1:30pm for matinee performance, which start at 2:30pm; 6pm for evening performances, which start at 7:30pm. Adults £5 per ticket (£4 concessions) or up to 5 on a family ticket at a pocket-pleasing £14.

There’s a bonus, too: if you become a friend by emailing them at, you could win a personal appearance of the Tatman and his horse Nell for your next kid’s party. What’s not to love?

Call the box office as soon as you can on 01922 655900 and reserve your tickets, or pop in to the theatre to purchase them directly.

If you go, do let me have a review. I love these guys.


These people put on a brilliant show…

Hi Everyone,

If you are anywhere near Bloxwich, you just have to make it to one of these shows! They are hilarious! Unfortunately I’m am not acting in them this time around but will be there because I just can’t resist a good laugh! Get your tickets….. they are going to sell fast!

Everyone in the cast are wonderful people but I must admit The Tat Man is my favourite!!! Hope to see you there.

Also look forward to a One Man show being held in the Walsall Library & Museum , Directed by Glen Buglass Starring Tony Barrett called “Life & Times of The Tat Man” written by David Calcutt starting April 2014.
