Students of Musical Theatre and Arts Development at the University of Chichester stage a musical comedy about a group of nuns desperately trying to raise money after finding themselves in a strange situation.

They stage a show to raise more funds – but will the inspector find out? This is a fundraiser for the Regis Centre.

George Egg – DIY Chef

Chequer Mead Community Arts Centre, De La Warr Road, East Grinstead

Friday February 23, 7.30pm

Tickets £14/pensioners and students £12

Award-winning comedian George Egg, famed for his shows demonstrating how to prepare and cook meals using equipment in hotel rooms, has a new show. In DIY Chef, George‘s doctor has told him he needs to rethink his culinary habits and as a result his family have banned him from using the kitchen. They’ve banished him to the shed. But George simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food. It’s a cross between stand-up comedy and an illustrated lecture.

Read our interview with George Egg.
