The Madness of George III Gala


Nottingham Playhouse
Thursday 22 November 2018 from 6.30pm
Tickets from £70


In its 70th year, Nottingham Playhouse is hoping to raise £25,000 at a special 70th anniversary gala this month to support its ongoing charitable work for people in the East Midlands.

Nottingham Playhouse is a national institution that has been producing world-class theatre since 1948. Millions of people have been to see the hundreds of productions that have been housed at the theatre over the years and a raft of household names have trod its boards, including Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Judi Dench and Michael Crawford to name a few. Several of its productions have transferred to award-winning runs at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, West End and even on Broadway.

The Gala will be a star-studded affair including drinks and canape reception in the company of famous faces, a special performance of the highly anticipated The Madness of George III -  starring Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, League of Gentlemen) and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey) - and access to an exclusive auction of ‘money-can’t-buy’ prizes, as well as a post-performance party.

There are plenty of stars to be confirmed, but rumored to be circulating alongside stars of the play are Andrew Scott, Jodie Prenger, Jemima Rooper, Angela Griffin and Nottingham Playhouse pantomime legend Kenneth Alan Taylor.

Prizes up for auction on the night so far include;

- Afternoon tea at Hart’s Nottingham with Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough.

- A walk-on role in this year’s Nottingham Playhouse pantomime including 4 tickets to watch.

- Nottinghamshire County Cricket team signed cricket bat and shirt.

- Original and authenticated ‘Dead Funny’ programme from 1994, signed by Zoe Wannamaker and cast.

- Limited edition linene-covered, Sat Bains signed copy of ‘Too many Chiefs only one Indian’

- Nottingham City Transport Double Decker driving experience for 4. 

- ‘Mark Gatiss as George III’ drawing, by Mark Gatiss himself


As a charitable organisation, Nottingham Playhouse is hoping to raise £25,000 for its 70th anniversary fund on the night to continue to fund its access and community work and its artist development programme for people in Nottingham and the East Midlands. The funds raised on the evening will go directly back into the Nottingham and wider East Midlands community through Nottingham Playhouse’s charity initiatives.
