The Newent Theatregoers' Club ended its latest season with the highest ever number of members on the books.

The demand was such that the club had to hire two coaches for the last show of the spring, The Constant Wife by Somerset Maughan, at Malvern Theatres on May 8.

There are currently 160 members of the Newent Theatregoers' Club but more will always be made welcome.

The club is taking a summer break until the autumn, but anyone wishing to register interest for then should contact Mr Peter Lawson-Smith on 01989 720123.
