Viceroy’s House at the Bonington

Friday 17th and Saturday 18th November

Having enjoyed Victoria and Abdul recently I am now looking forward to watching Viceroy’s House with Hugh Bonneville playing Lord Mountbatten who has the task of exploring the ambitions of both the rulers and the ruled in this historical drama set in 1947 India. Gillian Anderson also stars.

Showing at 7.30 at the BONINGTON THEATRE in Arnold. Pensioners concessionary price of £4.50.
Tel booking number on Arts Calendar but not usually necessary as BONINGTON has 190 seats.
