Up Pompeii


Based on the original characters devised for the Frankie Howerd BBC comedy, this hilarious romp through ancient Pompeii brings back all the television favourites in this full-length play. 

As Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, he’s quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house. Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius’s love poetry improve? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance – what could that possibly be? 

A riot from start to finish.

This is an amateur production staged by The Little Theatre Company.

Tickets price - £8 (adult)

If you wish to come to this event and you haven't already given me your money, you will need to purchase your own ticket(s). You can do this by calling the Brewhouse Box Office on [masked].

We currently have seats on Row E.

When you have booked your seat, if you put the seat number in the comments, it may help others to get seats nearby.

How to get there:

By car

From any of the routes into Burton upon Trent follow signs for the Coors Museum of Brewing. This is situated on the corner of Horninglow Road and Guild Street. Drive along Guild Street, crossing the lights by Frankie & Benny's. At the next crossroads, straight on. You are now in Union Street.

At the next lights, you have a choice of two car parks - right for Sainsbury's (closest) or left for Coopers Square. 

It is free to park in the Sainsbury's Car Park after 7pm.  The Cooper's Square car park is council owned and you will have to pay until 20:00 (8pm). However, the cost is only £1  for up to 2 hours. 

By train

Turn right out of the Burton upon Trent station onto Station Street. Continue until the crossroads and turn right into Union Street. The Brewhouse is on the right hand side after Sainsbury's.

By bus

Arriva X38 from Derby

    Hi Steve & co - whereabouts on row E are you? I've just rung and they do have tickets but at various seats along row E. If you know your seat number I should be able to get near you all :)

    I have now received the tickets for those of you who gave me money. If anyone else wishes to come to this event, you will need to purchase your own ticket(s). You can do this by calling the Brewhouse Box Office on[masked]

    The ticket price for this play has now been confirmed at £8. I will therefore be collecting money from anyone who wants to be in the original block booking of seats. After I have made that booking, you will be able to book your own seats direct with the Arts Centre :-)

      Also, of course, it's worth bearing in mind that the Repton Walk is weather dependent.

    • Margaret

      No problems. I will sort my own ticket and I have updated my rsvp to no so there's no confusion.

      April 7, 2014

  • Steve

    If you want to be included in the block booking of seats for this play, I will need your money sooner rather than later. I have some tickets on hold for us for the next couple of weeks but I have no control over exactly when these will be released back into the "pool".

      Hi Jim. See my reply to Margaret. It may be better if you were able to call in The Bless next Wednesday evening just to be sure.
