For touring companies and monthly programmes, we provide a full theatre service, including digital and paper promotion of shows, ticket sales, get-in/out support, basic technical support, box-office and ushering, with prompt settlement and payment afterwards. The theatre has a dressing room (with fridge, microwave, kettle, tea and coffee) and is close to local shops, cafes and restaurants for cast and crew.
Terms and conditions are usually box office shares for touring companies and joint production budgets for monthly programmes. One night, two nights, matinee and relaxed performance bookings taken. The theatre is also available for dress rehearsal in the days before bookings as the stage diary allows.
