What’s on

Welcome to our Autumn Season 2021.

We’re thrilled to announce our new autumn season featuring the usual great mix of theatre, music, dance and family events. Take a look below to see the broad range of work on offer – from regional and national theatre companies, talented musicians, inspiring storytellers and one anarchist cook.

Although currently there isn’t any legal requirement to follow many of the Covid precautions we’ve become accustomed to over the past year, many of our village halls and community venues may ask that audiences adhere to some precautions while attending our events. To find out more about venue specific requirements please contact the local promoter for the relevant performance.

We can’t be sure what the months ahead hold, but we live in hope that the autumn season will go ahead as planned and that we’ll share many more moments of joy in our village halls again soon.
