Bristol Kelvin Players Reach 250th Production with Howard Brenton’s Anne Bolyen

Bristol’s Kelvin Players will be putting on a landmark 250th production at Tobacco Factory Theatres this summer.

The non-professional theatre company was established in the city in 1929 and is one of the oldest and most respected companies in the region.

The group boasts more than 100 company members of all ages and rehearse for their five shows a year from their permanent base on the Gloucester Road.

The company’s celebration production is Howard Brenton’s Anne Bolyen, which will be staged at popular Southville studio theatre Tobacco Factory Theatres.

Artistic Director at Tobacco Factory Theatres, Mike Tweddle said: “We are very happy to welcome Kelvin Players for a second time following the success of Tartuffe presented here three years ago. As its 250th production, Anne Boleyn is a great example of this non-professional group’s continuing talent and heritage. The Bristol non-professional theatre scene is very healthy, bringing huge enjoyment to both audiences and participants, and we’re proud to have Kelvin Players join us this summer.”

The show will be at the theatre from Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 July 2018.

The play celebrates the controversial historical figure through a humorous ghost story set during the reign of James I, 67 years after her death.

Age Recommendation: 13 years upwards
