Caerphilly - Naughtiness And Hysteria In Up Pompeii!

Caerphilly - Naughtiness And Hysteria In Up Pompeii!

Thursday 9th Jul 2020

Blackwood Miners’ Institute are proud to host Up Pompeii, a night of hilarity based on the original characters in the Frankie Howerd BBC comedy, coming to Blackwood on Thursday 23 January at 7:30pm.

This hilarious romp through ancient Pompeii brings back all the television favourites in this full-length play.

As Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, he’s quickly caught up in the myriad of naughty liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house.

Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome?
Why does his wife return so quickly from the country?
Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius’s love poetry improve?

Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance – what could that possibly be? A riot from start to finish.

Up Pompeii is at Blackwood Miners' Institute on Thursday 23 January at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £20.75 (includes booking fee) and are available from the venue's box office on 01495 227206 or via the website at
