Lyceum Celebrate LGBT+ History Month

O’Hooley & Tidow are appearing at The Lyceum

Crewe Lyceum Theatre & Studio proudly plays host to a month of performance, screenings, and special events to celebrate the rich and varied history of LGBT+ communities in Cheshire. Presented in partnership with Body Positive, the theatre features an exciting line up of events to embrace the diversity of the LGBT+ community across the local area throughout February.

Settle down to a story with Drag Queen Storytime on Saturday 1 February. Fun and engaging for all the family and ideal for ages 3-11, join in with some sing-a-long nursery rhymes, an arts and crafts activity and meet and greet with storyteller and female theme Queen Mz Elle Toe, who prides herself in not taking things too seriously and uses her drag to spread the message of self-expression, self-love and inclusivity. Tickets priced at £3.

The Lyceum Studio stages an exciting line up of live performances including Qweerdog Theatre Company’s Absolute Certainty on 7-8 February and Edinburgh Festival hit Yours Sincerely on 13 February. Original Nolan sister and internationally renowned cabaret star and West End leading lady Denise Nolan celebrates The Music of Judy Garland on Saturday 8 February, and in a coup for Crewe, fresh from their performances at the Glastonbury Festival, the Theatre welcomes BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Nominees O’Hooley & Tidow on Saturday 22 February, famed for penning the theme to Sally Wainwright’s BBC/HBO series Gentleman Jack.

Complementing the on-stage activities, the Lyceum Studio plays host to an exciting range of film screenings from classics, to new works and Oscar winning features:

The Favourite (15) Thursday 6 February 6pm

The Happy Prince (15) Friday 14 February 2pm

Postcards from London (15) Monday 17 February 6pm

Tell It to the Bees (15) Thursday 27 February 2pm

Also throughout February, the free exhibition From Prejudice to Pride will be on display in the theatre. Gathering significant archives from Cheshire, it documents the incredible speed of change for LGBT+ communities over the last 30 years, and will be on display in the Lyceum Circle Foyer.
