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
