What’s on

This Spring, as the days get longer and the evenings lighter, we welcome some of the brightest artists to our halls. From creative cooking with comedian George Egg to apocalyptic quiz shows with Box of Tricks Theatre, from acoustic 80s with The Peas to juggling life in Home Sweet Home, from a Pontin’s holiday camp in Venus to one-woman Shakespeare in Nearly Lear … we hope that the season offers something to entice you all.
