Choice Grenfell (CANCELLED)

Saturday 27 June 2020
6.15 pm - 9.00 pm

The health and safety of our visitors, staff and community is paramount. Due to the continuing global public health crisis and following Government advice, we have taken the decision to cancel all of our Summer Season Shows.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused and we will be issuing refunds to anyone who has purchased a ticket. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for the latest updates.


Join us at the Weald & Downland Living Museum on Saturday 27 June for a  heart-warming 40th anniversary tribute to the unremittingly genteel, comedienne and monologist, Joyce Grenfell.

Gates open 6:15 pm. Performance begins 7.00 pm.


Choice Grenfell by Kick In The Head Productions is a wonderful tribute, featuring some of the best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately as a Galleon and School Nativity Play to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight. Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

We are delighted that the family of William Blezard have allowed Kick In The Head productions access to previously unpublished rehearsal recordings and personal letters from Joyce, allowing a unique insight into the queen of comediennes.

Directed by Simon Downing, and Staring Suzanne Walters as Joyce Grenfell and Andrew D Brewis as William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company”.


Tickets will be available to book online or on the gate.

  • Adults £15

Doors open at 6:15 pm. Performance begins 7.00 pm.
