By popular demand we return to war-torn occupied France and the café of René Artois. All of your much-loved characters from the hit comedy TV series. Witness René attempt to juggle running a café, love affairs with numerous serving girls, supporting the French resistance and treading a dangerous path with the Germans and the Gestapo.

We promise escaped British airmen, knockwurst sausages, some dodgy accents and of course a picture of “The Fallen Madonna with the big Boobies”, all in the atmospheric surroundings of the Arches outdoor theatre at Clifton Reynes, near Olney, Milton Keynes.

The show will be performed over the weekend of 22nd and 23rd August. Tickets are strictly limited to comply with social distancing so please book early to avoid disappointment!

This amateur production of “’Allo ‘Allo” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
