Otford Memorial Halls refurbishment funds will benefit from the purchasing of tickets for a performance of Gloriator being held at 8pm on Friday April 21 in the hall. This is the story of what happens when a glamorous French actress and her hapless assistant stage their version of Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator. It is wonderfully inventive, physical and very silly and has won awards and support from organisations such as the Arts Council England and Bristol Old Vic Ferment. Tickets will be available from March 1 at Yvonne’s, Telston Lane, Otford Emporium, Otford Parish Council Offices and Wegottickets.com and cost £10 per adult, £5 for children 5-16 years, under 5’s free.
