Calendar Girls The Musical

Tuesday 9 – Saturday 13 May 2023, Civic Theatre Chelmsford

A group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute decide to do things a little differently for their annual fundraising calendar, without realising how much of an impact their daring behaviours will have. In creating an artistic, nude calendar, we see each woman bloom in unexpected and fabulous ways. The true story of the Calendar Girls which launched a global phenomenon, has now been turned into this beautifully poignant musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow. Robyn Gowers will make her caods directorial debut and will be joined by Rachel Plunkett as Musical Director.

Some of our very brave members have posed for a calendar for charity and to raise money for Blood Cancer UK and Home Start Essex. Here are just some of the images by Film Free Photography. Well done ladies and gents!
