Talbot House – a home from home @ The Albany Theatre
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

During the Great War, Talbot House in Poperinge, Belgium, a few short miles behind the front line, became a haven for thousands of allied troops – a ‘home from home’ where they  enjoyed some home comforts and remembered the men that they really were. Run by a diminutive chaplain named Tubby Clayton the house became known by its army signaller’s code of Toc H and ultimately would be the inspiration for the association with that name. This play, written by Peter Gill and aimed at a family audience, recreates the humour, music and wonderful atmosphere of this inspirational house.

About Maggie’s

Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.

Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.

Our Centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.

The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 20 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad.

Ian Baldwin

This dinner dance was conceived in memory of Joliet Blues Band member Ian Baldwin. Ian benefited from the support of Maggie’s and the aim of the evening is to have a great time and raise funds for them in Ian’s memory.
