A not-for-profit organisation, we aim to keep ticket prices affordable while providing entertainment and inspiration for local people, attracting visitors from elsewhere in the UK and beyond, and driving footfall into the town centre.

We provide DisabledGo Access Guides to key venues and have live subtitling by Stagetext at some events to make them accessible to audiences who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.
