A NORPA production at The Eltham Hotel

All remaining performances of Love For One Night are sold out. Please join the waitlist by clicking on ‘Buy Tickets’ and hitting the link to ‘Join the waitlist’. We’ll be in touch if tickets become available.



Country pubs are gathering places made magic by night, where love begins, blooms and sometimes dies, often all in that night. We never know where, when, why, or who love will strike, filling hearts with joy and torment in equal measure.

Love for One Night is a circle dance of intersecting love stories told in the playful and theatrical style of Railway Wonderland and Dreamland. A series of brief encounters are told through dialogue, movement and song — while stunning visual effects and a live band add to the electric ambiance. A dexterous cast lead us through love in all its aspects — from deep friendship to infatuation, romance and heartbreak and of course sexual attraction and unbridled lust.

The Eltham provides an atmospheric backdrop, a magical place to gather and flirt and fall head over heels in love. For one night.

Grab your friends and join us for unforgettable theatre under the stars!

The pub is located in the beautiful Eltham valley – it can get a bit chilly so please be prepared to rug up and bring a weatherproof jacket.

Parking around the pub is limited so if you’re coming with friends please carpool. Designated drivers get a free soft drink, just make yourself known when you go to the bar!
