upcoming event highlights


Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage

An intimate show of American roots and English folk music.

Hannah and Ben perform huddled round a single microphone, singing intimate duets with just mountain dulcimer, dobro and guitar. They are a folk duo that look and sound classically timeless, yet feel refreshingly unique.

WHY? ‘An exquisite soundscape, which is the result of passion, precision and unbridled intimacy’ R2 Magazine

An Enemy of the People

Ibsen’s masterpiece is adapted for the 21st century.

Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she be lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?

Flintock Theatre employ their signature high-energy storytelling, music and live digital interaction.

WHY? A searing examination of fake news, whistleblowing and who really wields power in contemporary Britain

Recommended for ages 14+ years.

Snow White Rose Red Bear Brown

Snow White and Rose Red are sisters, twins, best friends. They have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood. Not as worldly wise as their Mother would have liked, they are nonetheless, kind, caring and sometimes a little over enthusiastic in their deeds!

When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to?

Suitable for ages 5+ years.
