Welcome from our Director
Welcome to our summer 2017 season full of exciting, challenging and adventurous performances, exhibitions and courses.
Details of our Membership scheme can be found here. You will receive 15% discount on all promotions which are marked with the red ribbon symbol, 5% discount on eat-in cafejac food, teas and coffees, and a loyalty scheme: buy 10 tickets you get the 11th free!
Highlights this summer season include: a return of the dynamic Kaz Hawkins Band as part of the Robert Tilling Series (25 May); the beautifully thought-provoking One Hundred Homes from Richard Jordan Productions (31 May – 3 June) seen at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last year; the world renowned Angela Hewitt (piano) as part of the Amici Artium series (6 June); and a chilling production from our youtheatre of Medea (29 June – 1 July). Oddsocks also return, with their unique sense of fun ‘n’ frolics, to Coronation Park with Romeo and Juliet (31 July – 9 August) so book early to avoid disappointment.
Enjoy the season ahead. We look forward to seeing you all out-and-about this summer!
