‘Barker Gotelee Solicitors are proud to be sponsoring the Eastern Angles Christmas Show for the first time in conjunction with chartered accountants Ensors who are regular supporters of the theatre company. For the past thirty years the popular regional touring theatre company has blazed a trail across the East of England with its annual programme including community tours of shows and plays to village halls and theatres.

The Brontes of Dunwich Heath…and Cliff, billed as unique comic extravaganza, will be shown in the Sir John Mills Theatre in Ipswich and at the Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge over the Christmas season. The show, written and directed by Eastern Angles founder and Artistic Director Ivan Cutting, will have specially composed music and lyrics by comedy writer Simon Egerton.

Complete with Mad Cath, Plain Jane and a panoply of off-the-wall Victorian characters, this will be a classic Eastern Angles musical Christmas caper full of the usual frenetic costume changes, quick fire humour and hilarious audience participation.

James Skellorn, Senior Partner at Barker Gotelee, said; “We are absolutely delighted to be sponsoring the Eastern Angles Christmas show. We know that the Christmas production will be of the highest calibre, as always. As a firm we are always keen to support and work with local talent and we look forward to supporting this festive performance. For many years Barker Gotelee and Ensors have worked closely in business and felt this was an ideal opportunity to join forces with them again to support our community.”

Robert Hatch, Senior Partner at Ensors, adds: “This will be Ensors 15th year supporting the Eastern Angles Christmas Show and we are really pleased to be marking this special occasion by welcoming Barker Gotelee to the ‘cast’.  I am sure 2013 will be another sell out year for the Christmas Show and I congratulate all at Eastern Angles for continuing this very successful & enjoyable tradition.”

The Christmas show runs from 4th December 2013 to 25th January 2014, with Peterborough performances being added in soon. For tickets ring the Box Office on 01473 211498 or book online at
