Charity performance of the Gypsy musical at Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion after a two-year delay

The show was originally due to be staged at Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion in March 2020, but was canceled after the dress rehearsal when the Covid lockdown was imposed.

An attempt was then made to relaunch the show in 2021 but with restrictions still in place this never happened.

Finally, it’s the third chance since the Christie company is staging Gypsy at Lowther from Tuesday April 26 to the following Saturday.
