This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Haslemere Educational Museum

From living on the streets of Lambeth and in a home for destitute children, he rose above appalling adversity to become arguably the greatest film star ever. How is that possible? The new Rude Mechanical Theatre Company’s show is the extraordinary story of Charlie Chaplin’s childhood and how he made comedy out of tragedy and came from being an illiterate ragamuffin on the streets to create beauty and the visually poetic. Full of music hall, poetry, playground clapping rhymes and slapstick, it will make you cry one minute and howl with laughter the next.

Bring your low-backed chairs & warm clothing. Bring your own low-backed chairs, picnics & warm clothing.
