WLOS are chuffed to bits to be gracing the London Oratory School stage in October 2022 with ‘Calendar Girls’ – the musical comedy inspired by the true story of a W.I. coming together to raise money in a unique way.
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. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. 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.

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

With beautiful songs, unforgettable characters, and real heart at the centre of it all, ‘Calendar Girls’ proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
