The Skegness Playgoers are set for a week of theatre next week when they host their 65th annual play festival.

The event is set to run from Tuesday, June 4 to Friday, June 7 at the Crazy Horse Saloon and Saturday, June 8 at Jaks - all at Butlin’s.

The festival starts on the Tuesday night with Skegness’s own play, a comedy titled ‘Out of Focus’.

“If you want a good laugh, don’t miss this one,” promised a spokesperson.

“There is a bar at the venue so you can relax in the Crazy Horse and enjoy a drink or two as well. Children are welcome so it’s a real family night out.”

On Wednesday the festival welcomes the Boston Playgoers with ‘The Weir’, which contains very strong language and it not suitable for young children.

On Thursday it’s the turn of Gainsborough Theatre Club, and on Friday its One Act Night and the Amici Touring Theatre from Lincoln with ‘A Small Family Murder’ by Simon Brett. On Saturday it’s the turn of the Lindsey Rural Players with ‘Lillies on the Land’.

All performances start at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm.

Tickets are £7 on the door (students £3, Butlin’s residents £5). A season ticket for all plays is £25.
