Tell your holiday horror story!

Theatre production needs holiday makers’ stories
Bristol based, Ministry of Entertainment is looking for local people and holiday makers to help with its next production – Mrs Gerrish’s Guesthouse. The show will premiere later this season at The Tobacco Factory.

Set in the 1950’s, true stories and personal experiences will form the basis of the show, with tales from front-line holiday-makers and veteran landladies of that Great British institution the sea side guest house.

The Ministry would love to hear stories from any age group who have experienced the joys and trials of a family beach holiday anywhere in Britain, but in particular in Weston super Mare.

Stories can be emailed to or posted to MoE, c/o The Tobacco Factory, North Street, Bedminster, Bristol or Kate McNabb can be contacted directly on 0117 973 3223.

The Ministry of Entertainment is well known for its hugely popular wartime trilogy of Doodlebugs and Bogeymen, Yes We Have No Bananas, and Keep Smiling Through, all set in and around Bristol.

Formed seven years ago by four ex-Bristol Old Vic Company members including Kate McNab and Ross Harvey, The Ministry has been touring continuously, with the trilogy always a sell out.
