Local Entertainment

 Local Entertainment

Wycombe Swan  Theatre can offer a range of entertainments which provide something for  everyone. There is drama, of course, but also dance, ballet, comedy and music  from opera through jazz and big band to folk. The auditorium has been designed  to allow access to the theatre for all, so there is space for 12 wheelchairs in  the main auditorium, and a special infra-red sound system for the hard of  hearing. It can also accommodate guide dogs.


If you have time before a performance, by the way, you might like  to view the pictures in the art gallery situated in the circle foyer. The  gallery features a changing programme of exhibitions. Next to the theatre,  Wycombe Swan Town Hall also offers theatre and cabarets as well as  exhibitions.
Just outside the town centre near junction 4 of the M40 is the  six screen Wycombe UCI Cinema.


Always worth a visit is Wycombe Museum, which explores the  history of the local area. The displays have recently been refurbished, and  there is a hands-on gallery which is especially popular with children. There is  even a community display case for individuals or groups to mount their own  special exhibition. The museum is open from 10am every day (2pm on Sundays), and  admission is free.


Clubbers are catered for in this area: although Club Eden in  Octagon Parade sounds like a place for naturists, it is actually a mix of bars  and a disco handily situated right in the centre of town. Entry starts from a  reasonable 2. Further out in Hazlemere is the Orchard End Country Club, which  is a venue for slightly older clientele.


If you like aircraft, then go along to Wycombe Air Park, which is  just a couple of miles south-west of the town, and visit the Blue Max Museum.  They have a collection of historic aircraft, many of which have been used in  films.


There are two historic houses in the area which can be visited,  both with famous former owners. Hughendon Manor was owned by Benjamin Disraeli,  the well known Victorian Prime Minister. The house is open seasonally, but its  surrounding park can be visited at any time during the year. To the west lies  West Wycombe House, which was the home of Sir Francis Dashwood who created the  infamous Hellfire Club. The club met in West Wycombe Caves, which can also be  visited. There are here a number of chambers and caverns containing tableaux  depicting the activities of the club.
