Eric has returned home, more than 40 years after he left, and it’s time for a fresh start.

But old flame Christine has other ideas.

Transported back to a time of chippy teas and Northern Soul, there’s unfinished business for these two former lovers.

Chip Shop Chips is a unique theatrical experience performed by a cast of four to a backdrop of Northern Soul music.

It is also combined with a fish and chip supper.

It takes place at Felton Village Hall on Saturday, February 27.

Tickets are £13 per person and available from 07710 497088 or 01670 787169.
