Bloodwise cancer charity to benefit from Godfrey's Last Summer

Bloodwise, the blood cancer charity, will benefit from Talking Stock's latest theatrical play. The tour of 'Godfrey's Last Summer' will raise money for their excellent cause.


The play, currently touring the north of England, is being staged here at the Millgate Arts Centre for one night only this coming Saturday (24th March) and its subject matter - the cricket-loving Yorkshireman - Godfrey Shackleton, is very apt to the Bloodwise charity as for many years, cricketing legend, Sir Ian Botham, has been raising money for Leukaemia.


Written by Alan Stockdill of Talking Stock Productions, the play is the third to feature the fictional Yorkshireman, Godfrey Shackleton. It is not necessary to have seen the previous plays as the story stands alone perfectly. In this heart-warming comedy drama, Godfrey, the international cricket umpire and famous lottery winner, is coming towards the end of his innings. Before he leaves the middle for the very last time he need to put his affairs in order...


Talking Stock raise money for charities by creating and performing wonderful theatre. Over the past five years they have raised over £24,300 for different causes.


'Godfrey's Last Summer' starts at 7.30pm on Saturday 24th March and tickets are available from Delph Library or online via this website or on the door (subject to availability).
