AFTER closing down for the month of August, the theatres reopen this week with an exciting autumn season ahead of them.

The Kenneth More, Oakfield Road, Ilford, kicks off tomorrow (Thurs) with Every Night Something Awful - a tribute to the Entertainment National Service Association (ENSA), which sent established artists like Vera Lynn, George Formby and Gracie Fields to perform for the troops around the world during World War Two.

The show runs until Saturday. That's followed on Sunday by A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening - some of your favourite KMT performers gathered around a grand piano, offering a nostalgic, witty, graceful and comic look at the world of love songs, old and new.
