CALENDAR GIRLS

Ended 6 Jan 2010 after 8 months

A show whose feel-good factor is sky high

The Guardian

Closed 6 Jan 2010

At First Glance it should look like your classic WI Calendar. Jams, cakes, sewing and all that. Except for one tiny thing…the ladies aren’t naked, they’re nude.

A group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference! Overcoming their initial reserve, the friends drop their dressing gowns, modesty spared only by artfully placed cakes, knitting and flower arrangements.

Puzzling their husbands, mortifying their children, and riding the wrath of the outraged WI, they spark a global phenomenon. As interest snowballs, the CALENDAR GIRLS find themselves revealing more than they’d ever planned.

A very British story with a very British heart, CALENDAR GIRLS is quirky, poignant and hilarious. Adapted by Tim Firth from his smash hit Miramax film of the same name, it is based on an uplifting and very inspiring true story.

Leukemia Research

The original Calendar Girls calendar was made in support of Leukaemia Research and in memory of Angela Baker's husband John who died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma ten years ago. Angela and her friends continue to support Leukaemia Research and to this day have raised over £1.5million. For more information visit their website
