Royal Spa Centre

Welcome...

to the Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall Autumn/Winter 2013 brochure. The Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall are operated exclusively by Warwick District Council for the benefit of residents of the District and visitors to the area. We are dedicated to presenting the best available theatre and entertainment to audiences in central Warwickshire and beyond. As household budgets become increasingly tight, we recognise that our customers’ expectations are now higher than ever. We are doing everything we can to ensure that we continue to offer you excellent value for money and a fantastic night out in Leamington Spa! In 2011 major refurbishment works totally transformed the foyers and auditorium seating of the Royal Spa Centre, making it an extremely intimate and comfortable venue to visit. Changes were also made to the programme of performances – attracting a diverse range of entertainment to the venue. In August 2012, the Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall had a change of management and we continue to work hard to implement many initiatives that place our customers firmly at the core of what we do. The Town Hall is open to the public from 9am – 5pm and is one of the most historic buildings on the Parade. Easily recognisable due to its distinctive clock tower, the Town Hall is a popular venue for community events, meetings and functions. Last year the University of Warwick Learning Hub and Bromford Support also leased office spaces on the ground floor.

“Everybody loves and respects Kate Rusby, not just for her lovely voice, but for the way she has moved folk forward while remaining true to tradition” Sunday Times 2012

kate rusby

A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that rare ability to transport her audience, of touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination. Kate will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents. “...exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit.” Daily Telegraph 2012

Saturday 7 December 2013 - Saturday 4 January 2014 Main Stage | For times and ticket prices see table opposite Come and see if Aladdin, a poor Chinese boy, can win the heart of the beautiful princess! With a law decreeing that the princess can only marry a prince, and the evil Abanazar up to no good, it looks as though Aladdin’s dream may never come true. And he’s not the only one! Aladdin’s mum Widow Twankey, has got the mixed-up Chinese laundry blues; her other son Wishee Washee is being particularly unhelpful; and they’re also very poor…If only Aladdin could make his fortune and then all their dreams could come true.

Toby here again! There’s nothing like a family trip out to see the panto to make you feel festive, and this one’s extra fun...oh no it isn’t...oh yes it is!!
