We are going to need considerably bigger buns

Blasting away all preconceptions and suppressing their inhibitions, the death of a much-loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. They decide to pose for an artistic nude calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund.  

Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower and shines a light on the enduring strength of women’s relationships. 

The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, this stage play, and a musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time. 

Every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
