Sun 22 Jul 2018

In the 1960's, the group were initially known as the Birmingham Folk Four, becoming The Settlers after their first single, "Settle Down". Then came 'The Lightning Tree', made famous as the theme tune for TV's 'Folly Foot Farm'.

Welcome to The Playhouse, Sleaford, Lincolnshire.

The theatre built in 1825 closed in 1856 and converted into a school, the following years saw the building used for a series of other uses but was restored and reopened in 2000.

Built for a bookbinder, printer and comedian Joseph Smedley, who owned a string of theatres and ran a small touring theatre company, which toured these theatres in the Lincolnshire and Norfolk area.

As one of only two of Britain's Georgian theatres with a small, rectangular auditorium, we invite you to explore its history and see what's on offer.
