In a year full of 50th birthday celebrations, Shropshire’s rural theatre company, Pentabus, has another very special event coming up.

On Wednesday, July 10, the charity will be holding a Theatre Promenade Supper, which will start with a glass of fizz and some live entertainment at Pentabus’ new home at Ludlow Assembly Rooms.

Ticket holders will then be divided into three smaller groups and walk between three Ludlow venues for a starter, main course and dessert.

Kin Kitchen, CSONS, and Bill’s Kitchen will provide each group with a course before they walk to the next venue.

“We’re very excited to be a part of Ludlow’s first ever theatre promenade dinner,” said Bill Sewell, from Bill’s Kitchen. “I can’t imagine a better way to spend a summer evening than promenading around our lovely town from one delicious restaurant to another – and being theatrically entertained on the way. We can’t wait!”

Reuben Crouch from CSONS added, “When we were asked if we’d like to be involved in this exciting, food-based fundraiser we didn’t give it a second thought.”

“We’re delighted to be part of the Pentabus celebrations,” said Janet Morris from Kin Kitchen. “We love the promenade supper idea and are really looking forward to inviting guests into the garden for summer evening dining.”

Entertainment will include Zoe Hanna May who grew up in Shropshire and whose career took off when she appeared on the BBC’s The Voice UK. She will be singing a selection of songs with Izzy Culliss on piano. Actor and former Pentabus Young Writer, Aled Gomer, will perform his own piece Learning to Float, and former guitarist and vocalist with the world-famous Electric Light Orchestra, Dave Scott-Morgan with partner Mandy, will perform a set with Pentabus trustee, Joel Hall.

The Pentabus Theatre Promenade Supper will kick off at 5.30pm on Wednesday, July 10 at Ludlow Assembly Rooms. Tickets are £50 per person which includes the three-course meal, a glass of fizz, live entertainment, and support for Pentabus’ work producing new productions and. There will also be a raffle to help raise funds.
