The West End's fastest selling stage show Calendar Girls is opening in Carlisle. It stars Lesley Joseph, Sue Holderness, Ruth Madoc, Kathryn Rooney, Camilla Dallerup, Helen Fraser, Deena Payne and Kacey Ainsworth with Kevin Sacre as Lawrence the photographer.
The story tells of a a group of WI women from Yorkshire who pose naked for a charity calendar to raise funds for Leukaemia research, after one of the women's husbands was diagnosed with the disease.
The true story sparked a global phenomenon and was made into a film, followed by a stage show which has sold out in every venue it has visited. The show will be at the Sands Centre until the 13th October.
