Head back to the 80s and join the party this April

Get ready to party like it’s 1985 with the classic musical comedy - ‘The Wedding Singer’ which will be performed at Landau Forte Academy from April 4 to April 7.

Tamworth Musical Theatre Company (formerly known as Tamworth Arts Club) presents this hit production set in 1985 when hair is huge, greed is good and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favourite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.

It’s show time again with Tamworth Assembly Rooms ‘on tour’


The show must go on! Tamworth Assembly Rooms may have closed for refurbishment but audiences will not miss out this autumn and winter as a number of popular events will be taken out into the community to ensure the show goes on.

Annual favourites such as Tamworth Arts Club productions, Christmas concerts and the pantomime will continue as part of ‘Tamworth Assembly Rooms on Tour’, which aims to make sure the theatre’s regular users still get opportunities to perform while the venue is extended and modernised.

“Over my dead body”

Tamworth Assembly Rooms Archaeological dig drew to a close this week following 2 weeks of excavating ahead of the extension and redevelopment of the building. Although we didn’t find our ‘king in the car park’ it did provide a small glimpse at Tamworth from times past.
