The Regal is open at last

It's been years in the planning, months in the execution, and moments in the opening but at last the Regal Tenbury is fully open.

A short opening ceremony was held yesterday to mark a new chapter in the History of the Regal Tenbury Wells.

The ribbon was cut by Tenbury Mayor Cllr Susan Corfield, assisted by former projectionists, Andrew and Ted Wall and Tom Dallow.

After the ceremony over 120 people crowded into the Regal and became part of history as the Regal Trust used the new digital projector for the first time. The picture and sound quality was amazing, and everyone enjoyed all the new facilities.

The new Regal Cafe also opened for the first time, with patrons eager to sample the authentic hot dogs, the popcorn and a full range of drinks and coffees. The cafe is open daily from 10am to 5pm and from 6.30pm on show days. (Update - Cafe daytime opening delayed until Monday 10th)
The night couldn't have been such a success without the small army of volunteers who ran the box office, sold sweets and ice creams and showed people to their seats. They all did a marvellous job.

Films and live shows can be booked online at regaltenbury.co.uk or by visiting the Box Office.

The trusts Gala opening is on Sunday 16th September, when Tony Christie, will be joined by Paul Daniels, Debbie Magee, Ceri Dupree, Kev Orkian, The West End Musical Stars and a few surprise guests. This is Tenbury’s biggest ever show and is not to be missed. A few tickets are still available.

It should be warm, as the heating has been upgraded. I guess someone else is paying your fuel. A return trip to Worcester costs me over £10.
But if you want first release films you will have to go to Worcester as the distributors won't let us have them unless we show them 20 times.

Went to see War Horse yesterday evening. Had to queue for a ticket! Film entertaining if rather over-sentimental. Surround sound brilliant. What a great asset to the town.
