Win tickets to Britain's Best Recruiting Sergeant

Win tickets to Britain’s Best Recruiting Sergeant at the Unicorn Theatre

Britain’s Best Recruiting Sergeant is a feisty, song-filled and touching look at the real-life story of Vesta Tilley – perfect for families with children aged 8+.

We follow Little Tilley as she takes her first steps onto the iconic music hall stage with her father, hones her own act and then goes it alone in order to become Vesta Tilley – Britain’s Best Recruiting Sergeant; a shining star of the music hall whose much-loved act as a male impersonator makes her world-famous.

War breaks out and Vesta supports the cause by using her popular act to recruit soldiers to fight for king and country, but has she used her stardom for good? And is winning the most important thing?

The Unicorn commemorates the centenary of World War One and the 150th anniversary of Vesta Tilley’s birth (1864-1952) with this musical production, specially created for family audiences. The show runs from 13 Feb – 15 Mar, tickets are just £10 for under 21s with family discounts available. Preview performance tickets are all £10 (13 – 17 Feb).
