CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

London, 1948 – The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to ‘control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,’ it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to ‘shake confectionery to its very foundations,’ his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down. From the team who brought the sell-out Those Magnificent Men to the Lichfield Festival in 2016 comes a hilarious musical comedy satire.

Suitable for ages 7+

‘A top-hole musical comedy…a highly entertaining, clever show, packed with neat one liners… a festival gem.’  The Stage

Running Time: 120 mins (approx.)
