8-10 plays each year, all different so something for everyone at some point in the year. Has a small bar upstairs plus teas and coffees available downstairs.

Me and my friends were blown away by how brilliant the show was. The production was incredibly professional, the actors and singers were very talented. On top of that, the bar prices are great too!

Had another great night at this little gem of a theatre. Fabulous cast and set for Sweeney Todd - can't wait for our next visit.

This is a small perfectly formed little gem of a theatre. Watched "Midsummer" and this was a great value for money performance. This is a small up close theatre run by volunteers.
