Part of It All – 75th anniversary show, The Hawth Studio – 24-25 May

Since the 16th century, The George Inn has stood. It has seen visitors come and go. Held within its walls those who have stayed for a while, those whose visits were fleeting. It has witnessed altering seasons, faces old and new. Change. Change on the High Street within which it stands, in the town, particularly in the last 75 years... Through dance, music and theatre, local creatives and community groups join to reflect on the last 75 years of Crawley New Town in its anniversary year from the point of view of one of the town's oldest landmarks. Tickets: £8 (child: £5) from The Hawth Theatre.
