Have your say

Looking for something a little bit different to do this Valentine’s Day?

Then you could do worse than head to Thornton Little Theatre and soak up some good old romance.

The theatre is showing two classic movies as part of its new film club.

First up today at 3pm is Casablanca, one of the most instantly recognisable and quotable films ever made, with memorable performances from Bogart and Bergman.

Then, something a little more modern, and celebrating all the singletons out there and the quest for true love, is Bridget Jones’s Diary at 7.30pm.

The Little Theatre Film Club, launched to bring the best of world cinema to the people of the Fylde, takes place once a month with the venue transformed – cinema style seating installed to add to the atmosphere.

Tickets are £3.50 in advance, or £5 on the door. Head to or call 01253 887693 for more information.

* The first Lytham Fylde Arts Midday recital of 2014 takes place at Lytham Assembly Rooms today at 2pm.

The guest is international concert pianist John Clegg, who was resident pianist at Lancaster University before heading round the world to perform in a series of prestigious concerts.

His will play music by Mozart (Sonata in Bb K281), Grieg (Album Leaves Op 28), and Brahms (Three Intermezzi), amongst others.

Admission is £8, or £6 for Fylde Arts Members.

* The internationally acclaimed stage hit Jersey Boys is touring the UK and Ireland for the very first time – starting at the Palace Theatre Manchester in September.

It’s fair to say the musical has been a success , winning 55 major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Jersey Boys tells the true life story of four boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, invented their own sound, and sold 175 million records worldwide. Tickets from £21.90 at
