Saturday 29th October 7.30pm / Main House


Presented by The Six Twenty

Written and performed by LEWIS JOBSON Created by LEWIS JOBSON and MELANIE RASHBROOKE 

“You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” 

Meet Lewis. He’s a Redcoat. He’s living the dream and living it large in Bognor Regis. He likes to smile and show you a good time. But what happens when you’re having an ‘off day’? And you tell Barney the dinosaur to p*ss off (in front of a load of kids)?

Join Redcoat Lewis as he sets out to make the world a little bit better through his love of entertaining and showing people a good time. Loosely inspired by Lewis’ real-life experience as a Butlin’s Redcoat in Bognor Regis. Redcoat is a fun, life-affirming show about being happy (and a little bit about being sad).

Expect classic holiday tunes, beach parties, dance routines, balloon modelling, karaoke sing-a-longs and that extra bit of Redcoat sparkle!

After a sell out premiere at Live Theatre (Newcastle) in Autumn 2021, Redcoat returns for its larger-than-life UK tour.
