Don’t Panic! Dad’s Army themed event at The Monastery 2021


Exclusive to Greatdays, Don’t Panic! – A Comedy Tribute to the Home Guard in the style of Dad’s Army!

In World War II, with a German invasion looming, the defence of Walmington-on-Sea rests in the hands of the local bank manager and a motley collection of volunteers in the Home Guard unit. Dad’s Army, despite being woefully ill-equipped, the rag-tag crew is ready to take on invading troops from across the Channel…

“Don’t Panic!” is a variety Dad’s Army tribute show. This light-hearted, sing-along, slapstick comedy show is guaranteed to have your group laughing all the way. Your favourite characters – including Captain Mainwaring – are all there. Along with a musical maestro who provides some stirring renditions of wartime favourites on the piano.

Less than 10 people in your group? You can book here without sending us an enquiry!

Gorton Monastery

The show take place at the historic Gorton Monastery, Manchester, a beautiful restored priory with a fascinating history.  Enjoy tea and coffee upon arrival and await the show to begin.  The hilarious cast of 4 will then entertain you with gentle humour and nostalgia before we serve your 3-course, home-cooked lunch.   For those who love to dress up, there will be a prize for the best war themed outfit. Once we have selected the winner of our charity raffle, it will be on with the show!  3pm is curfew time, get your coat and hurry home in case the ARP Warden spots you!

This show is a must for any lover of the popular TV series.  So bring your ration books, paste on your gravy stockings and join us for an unforgettable afternoon of good old fashioned fun and laughter!
