Thank you for your post and glad to know you enjoy the Centre's programme of events. We couldn't do any of it without the support and time so freely given by the volunteer teams.

A great venue for nationally touring comedians and others. Great sound, comfortable seating and very helpful staff. The local amateur dramatic society use this theatre for most of their productions which are always worth attending.More

What a brilliant place for meeting friends and catching up on news. Great service from a team of volunteers and cakes which are sublime. Definitely worth a visit for a show, or film or just a cuppa ❤

Has a variety of screenings etc live stream, cinema and theater. A bit pricey for what is it. I would have expected slightly cheaper prices. And more disabled access would be nice, so less restricted when choosing times for shows.More

We're so lucky to have this ever improving local centre - films, shows, meetings, etc - almost entirely volunteer run, as a focus for North East Shropshire.
