Arts Centre – January

The Arts Centre on campus is truly a magnificent place. Not only do they do Free Film Friday, but they have a magnificent array of other shows on offer! Even better, if you have an Arts Centre membership (which is free, by the way!), you can get 4 tickets free per semester!

Question is: what to use them on? Here are some of my recommendations!

Bad Girls – Jan 9 & 10 – 7:30pm
Third Year Musical Theatre Students present Bad Girls. A fresh, funny and original British musical, based on characters from the award winning and hugely popular television drama Bad Girls.

Sister Act – Jan 12 & 13 – 7:30pm
Third Year Musical Theatre Students present Sister Act. Featuring dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around.

(If you are on campus on any of these dates and want to support fellow students, these are both great choices!)


EHU Musical Theatre Society Winter Showcase – Jan 20 – 7:30pm

If you’re a fan of musical theatre or just fancy something different on a cold January Saturday night in Ormskirk, come in and feel the warmth of the stage lights and the red-hot talent Edge Hill Musical Theatre Society has on offer and we promise you’ll have a wonderful evening!

(Because who doesn’t love a good bit of musical theatre?)


Jazz in The Red Bar – Jan 29 – 8:00pm

The Red Bar transforms into a cabaret style jazz club! The Phil Shotton Quartet will entertain you with jazz standards from the 1930’s onwards and popular songs from the American songbook – swing music at its best! FREE – just turn up!

(You don’t even need a ticket for this one! Just head over to the Red Bar – you’ll see it as you walk in – and enjoy the music!)


Open Mic Night – Jan 31 – 7:30pm

Edge Hill is bursting with talented students who can sing or dance, recite poetry, play an instrument or have another hidden talent. Book your slot with the Box Office – or be part of the audience. FREE, just turn up!

(Again, no ticket required! Just turn up on the night – or register with the Box Office to take part! There may even be a performance from yours truly…)


Pan’s Labyrinth – Jan 31 – 7:30pm

Spanish fantasy story directed by Guillermo del Torro (‘Cronos’) with stunning sets, shocking scenes and effects – set in the mind’s eye of a lonely young girl. Cert: 15 with English subtitles.

(If an Open Mic Night isn’t your thing, you can pop down on the same night and watch the Labyrinth that didn’t have David Bowie in it!)


Of course, my opinion is not the only one in the world – if none of these excite you, check out the link near the top and see the whole list for next semester! You can book online or head to the Box Office to get any tickets you want! And remember – 4 free tickets with a membership!
