January Shows coming up at Unity Theatre

AFTER a successful year of shows, Unity Theatre looks forward to an eventful start to the new year, with a major capital redevelopment taking place, from January to May 2017. During this time, Unity embarks on its 'Out of Space' season, which reaches out of the theatre and into the community, with a selection of bold and reactive shows.

Artistic Director and CEO, Matthew Linley, explains:- "We're delighted to be presenting a season of shows across several venues in the Merseyside area between January and April next year. While our own theatre undergoes a transformation, we want to take the opportunity to use some of the fantastic venues around the city, new and old, conventional and unconventional. We will then reopen, in May 2017, with our summer season, and we can't wait to show off our new spaces."

The 'Out of Space' season will draw on Unity Theatre's aims to collaborate and encourage new and burgeoning talent, engage families and individuals from economically disadvantaged areas, tackle current issues and say the important things that would otherwise go unsaid.

Before the builders come in, there's still the chance to catch popular Christmas show:- 'Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf...' That is before it wraps up, on 7 January 2017. The family friendly Christmas show, perfect for ages 5+ and their families explores the thrill of adventure and unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be, as well as the tension between mankind and nature.

Your unwanted gifts can make a difference to poorly pets

SANTA may have finished his deliveries for another year, but if you didn't quite get what you wished for remember that any unwanted gifts can make a huge difference to poorly pets. Vet charity PDSA is encouraging animal lovers in Southport to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to help raise cash for pets in need. PDSA's shop in Lord Street, is on the look out for any unwanted, duplicate or unsuitable presents, such as gift sets, books, DVDs or clothes.  Toria Salisbury-Scott, PDSA Central Operations Manager, said:- "Sharing gifts at Christmas is a real highlight of the year, but there are always a few gifts that just don't take our fancy, from unfitting clothing to duplicate gift sets, or items that you'll never need or use. Rather than storing them away and feeling wracked with guilt, your unwanted gift could help save a sick or injured pet. Why not donate them to a really worthwhile cause and help your local PDSA."

PDSA shops raise vital funds to provide veterinary treatment to the pets of people in need.  The shops also welcome donations of good quality, 2nd hand clothing, home ware, books, toys and DVDs.

Toria added:- "If you're having a sort out to make room for Christmas presents please think of PDSA and donate your pre-loved items. You can bring items to your local shop or call to arrange a collection."

To contact PDSA's Southport shop call:- 01704 536 948.
