THE BONBONS NYE BLOWOUT
Alphabetti Theatre: Dec 31st 2019
’ll have a vowel please, and another, and a consonant, and another. The teams have been picked, the letters shuffled, the dictionary is in the corner and now all that’s left is to play the game. Who will see in the New Year with us? Who will stick to their New Year’s Resolution? Is next year going to be that much better? Well, we can start by putting our best foot forward, as this year we will finally have 2020 vision. Join Bonnie and The Bonnettes and The House of Love for a New Year’s Eve special that will see 2019 in with vowels in one hand and consonants in the other. Please note that neither Rachel Riley nor Carol Vorderman will be attending this event.
