January is almost over and many of us will have spent the month recharging the batteries after a heavy festive break, but now it’s time to start filling that social calendar of yours and we have just the idea for you – why not check out some of the fantastic events taking place at one of the region’s local theatres.
The Hawth Theatre (Crawley)
If you are looking for a live show then The Hawth is your best bet in the next few weeks. Head down for an adaptation of the Oscar-winning film Rain Man between Monday 11 February and Saturday 16 February. The show stars former EastEnders actor Paul Nicholls as Raymond and another former soap star Chris Fountain as Charlie.
Alternatively, if you like more of a musical flavour to your shows they are also showing performances of the smash hit musical Rock of Ages for just one week between the 19-23 February. The rock-themed love story will have you singing and laughing along with its epic songs played loud and proud by an awesome live band.
More information on both of these shows and everything else on at The Hawth Theatre can be found at https://www.parkwoodtheatres.co.uk/The-Hawth
The Harlequin Theatre (Redhill)
If shows aren’t really your thing then our advice is for you to check out the Harlequin Theatre in Redhill during February, as the Mayor of Reigate and Banstead, Cllr Mrs Dorothy Ross-Tomlin is hosting her film gala and help raise money for two great charities George and the Giant Pledge and The Born Free Foundation.
Spread across the weekend of 15-17 February they will be showing four great films for you to enjoy – Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Lego Movie 2, The Greatest Showman (Sing-a-long version of course) and Casablanca.

Dorking Halls (Dorking)
If nothing so far has taken your fancy then surely a musical performance is the answer, and that is where Dorking Halls can help. Over the next month, they will be hosting a number of fantastic tribute shows to some of the music industry’s biggest names including The Electric Light Orchestra, Aretha Franklin and Meatloaf.
It’s time to warm up those vocal cords because you won’t be able to stop yourself from joining in with all your old favourites.
