Welcome from our Director
Welcome to our spring 2020 season which is, as always, full of exciting, challenging and adventurous participatory experiences including the launch of our new Learning Centre on Thursday 13 February at 4pm!
Highlights this season include, the return of: The Outside Track (25 Jan), Luke Wright (8 Feb) and Flo + Joan (13 + 14 March) . And, as part of the Amici Artium series we have the Castilian Quartet (11 Feb) and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (27 March). There are also a further two superb productions from Richard Jordan: Night + Daze (17 April) and Buzz (29 April). But why not treat yourself to the Oddsocks experience with The Adventures of Pinocchio between 20-24 January and the youtheatre production of Beasts and Beauties between 19 – 21 March. Be sure to book early for all the above to avoid disappointment!
