We Will Rock You

Well they said they would Rock us, and they certainly did at the hit musical written by Queen and Ben Elton.

We Will Rock You was a feast for the eyes with elaborate lighting scenes that ensured a futuristic feel. The cast clearly selected for vocal ability told a story of the future with a playlist of Queens well known songs.

The plot was full of humour and saw the ‘dreamer’ take on Global Soft.  They wanted to keep control of people’s minds and had banned making music and instruments in a bid to stop free will. The cast were true professionals who looked to be enjoying every minute.

Hull New Theatre opened in 1939 with Noel Gay’s ‘Me and My Girl’ and recently had a £16m revamp which means it can host the larger shows as the stage was extended.

The character of the building has been retained and it has a warm and welcoming feel. The seats are well positioned and allow audiences to really see and enjoy the performances. We were seated in the Circle and could clearly view all the details of the performers, costumes and set. Hunts Coaches have good relationships with venues and source the best show tickets and provide local Lincolnshire Coach pick-up points. This is why so many choose to book theatre and concert trips with them. Its quick and convenient to book by visiting the website, telephone call or in person. If you are thinking of organising a trip for a large group, they can do this too.

Getting to the Theatre was easy, we got on the coach at Osbourne Street in Grimsby and travelled in comfort. Our driver (Dave) provided all the information we needed and issued the theatre tickets onboard. We were dropped off directly outside the theatre and had time to sit back with a drink in the bar. We enjoyed seeing everyone chatting, having fun and dressed for the occasion. Some of our group enjoyed a bite to eat too. The theatre has all the facilities you would expect with an increasingly diverse show list and in a great location near to local restaurants and shops. If you haven’t visited, what are you waiting for?

The next day trip to this theatre is for Les Miserables showing on the stage 21 November for a matinee performance with time to enjoy Hull before the show. Click Here for more information.
