At the Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster University Theatre Group perform 'One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest' by Ken Kessey. Adapted by Dale Wasserman, Kessey's award-winning cult novel about one man's struggle against the system has been radically reworked for the Nuffield Theatre. It is a harrowing and humorous tale of friendship and justice. Told from the perspective of one of the patients, Big Chief Bromden 'One flew over the Cuckoo's nest' looks to be a night of laughter and tears.

The show runs from 10th to 12th June. Each show begins at 7:30, and tickets are £6 full price and £4 for concessions.

From 20th June to 1th July, the Peter Scott Gallery hosts the Art Department's Student Degree Show, where selected contemporary artworks by Final Year students, many of which will be for sale, will be on display.

The Gateway for Adults Exhibition will on at the Peter Scott Gallery between Tuesday 8th and Friday 11th July. Admission is free, and opening times are available from the Peter Scott Gallery 01524 593057.
