The Classic Sci-Fi Musical To Orbit Tamworth
All the hype may currently be about the latest instalment in the long-running Star Wars movie franchise.

But sci-fi fans in Tamworth can also get the opportunity to see another extra-terrestrial classic without needing to take a trip to the cinema.

The rock spectacular Return to the Forbidden Planet will be docking in the Staffordshire town this Spring to provide fans of all ages with a rocking night at the theatre.

Catch the sci-fi classic in Tamworth

Tamworth Arts Club will be performing Return to the Forbidden Planet for a five night run starting in March in sharp contrast to their previous production, Calamity Jane.

The popular musical is blasting off from the theatre at Landau Forte Academy Sixth Form in Ashby Road, Tamworth, from March 29 to April 2.

The production has been forced to move to the college while its usual venue, Tamworth Assembly Rooms, is closed for major refurbishment work, commencing in February.
