Live Lau footage and news of tonight!

Thanks so much to all who came to the theatre last night – Lau were magnificent. What a tremendous way to open the festival. Here’s a little clip….


The Rooftop Cinema, organised by Collectively Camberley, also kicked off to a wonderful start with a sold out performance of ‘Dirty Dancing’.

June 1st 2016 – was a night to remember in Camberley!!

So….tonight, there’s another film on the top floor of the multi storey, tonight it’s ‘Back To The Future’.

At the theatre, this time in the café / bar we have a truly unique experience. We are having a playback of a recording made in Camberley in 1966 by the New Jazz Orchestra featuring Jack Bruce. Gearbox Records have burned off one acetate vinyl to play…here it is fresh off the press this afternoon!

See you later!


Jazz Archive Playback from 1966

As part of the C.I.F., on Thursday June 2nd, Camberley Theatre are hosting a very exciting playback of a recording of  The New Jazz Orchestra made when they played the Highwayman pub in Camberley in 1966. This is particularly poignant as this is also the year that the theatre opened.

Gearbox Records, in association with The Heritage Lottery Fund, have purchased rare recordings of the London jazz scene from the 1960s – including this one from The Highwayman.

The New Jazz Orchestra featured world famous bass player, Jack Bruce (also of Eric Clapton’s Cream) and Jon Hiseman of Colosseum on drums.

Gearbox Records will be pressing up one acetate of the recording, to be played on a record deck in Camberley Theatre’s café bar and will be giving a talk, including Q&As after the playback.

This is a free event and doors will be open from 7:30pm. The bar will be open, serving cocktails, locally-brewed craft ales, excellent wine list and a great new menu of contemporary food and snacks.
