Jack - Offer Banner


After a busy spring, our programme of events just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and our Summer Season is looking amazingly full.

There’s plenty to keep the little ones entertained, with Tales from the Shed and Planet Play returning for a new season, and our friends at Baby Broadway are back with their engaging shows, Baby Gospel, and the much-loved Baby Broadway Family Concert.

Our Children’s Festival of Fun returns for another year and is even bigger and better than 2021!  With lots of different events, such as our hugely popular Tales Big Day Out, a brand-new binaural show, Sound Adventures, and Making a Better World, a theatre version of Keilly Swift’s well-known children’s book, plus much, much more. There really is something for everyone across two weeks of festival fun.

But that’s not all… our very first Family Summer Pantomime, Cinderella in Boots, will be showing in our Studio Theatre in the summer holidays.  Expect lots of fun and laughter as we catch up with Cinderella, who is now working in a shoe shop! The boot is most definitely on the other foot as we re-tell the Cinderella story - a great show for all the family.

We have plenty of entertainment too - our popular Friday Night offerings of Funnies, Quizzes and Food are perfect for a warm summer night ‘out-out’; and we can’t wait for our wonderful Community Choir to serenade us on a summers evening with a Midsummer Musical Evening. Music really is back on the agenda as Jo Collins welcomes you to join her for a set of eclectic covers; 80s/90s rock band Shot in the Dark Reloaded will be performing some big riffs, and Madeline Bell will be performing for one night only, in conversation and song with Jo Collins, accompanied on piano by Strictly’s Dave Arch.

Our building is bursting with activity every Sunday during Sunday Shed with an amazing selection of workshops for children and adults. Plus, there’s so many new workshops throughout the Summer, from Adult Acting Workshops to Discovering the Classics, there’s sure to be something that takes your fancy.

There are opportunities to make connections and form friendships through creativity and theatre when you become a member of the Space Between Us Community, or enjoy afternoons of entertainment at the Gladrags Secret Society, our glamourous social club for over 60’s.

Our Student Graduation Shows are also back, and our FD, BTEC and BA students can’t wait to share their work with you.

And finally, we are delighted to announce the title of our 2022 Christmas Show… Jack!
