9 to 5 Musical, Trinity Theatre, Sun 24 March 

Tumble outta’ bed and stumble to Dolly Parton’s rip-roaring West End musical! 9 to 5: The Musical performed by Chichester’s celebrated Tour Company at The Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on Sun 24 March. 9 to 5; the Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit? Inspired by the cult film this hilarious new touring production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business! The production features a West End professional live band and some of the most freshest voices, dancers and actors on stage. Showing at 7:30 pm, there’s still a few tickets left. 

Violet Jive, Powder & Magazine, Sun 24 March

Powder & Magazine are known for their Sunday lunches where live jazz is often played and our sources tell us that it can be a struggle to get a table! You’ll love the cool historic setting in the old Royal Navy Ordnance Depot, think funky, high-ceiling warehouse but with a very welcoming vibe.
