Went to the Hall to see the musical 'Crazy for you'. The Hall itself was the old town hall complex, big for its time. They used to run cattle and farm shows inside in the old days. Now it's a theatre. Obviously, its much smaller,...More

Second time I have been to HFC on my own and again found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and efficient. Wonderful performance of Swan Lake by St Petersburg Ballet.

Hi, went to see matinee of Saturday Night Fever on Wednesday. Very talented cast of singers/musicians/dancers, although at times female singers were uncomfortably loud. However what really spoiled it was the frequent usage of the F word and other American expletives which would not have been heard in 1976 and did not reflect the era. As most of the audience was of a mature age the response was very poor. In fact it did not come alive until the finale which was great and more in line with what people had come to see and hear. I accept that maybe a younger audience would not have found the language so offensive as regrettably this is now everyday speech for some. Disappointing as other shows have been much more enjoyable without the vile language. hope this isn't t a taste of things to come .
