“A space that delivers professional facilities, that is flexible, affordable and accessible to performers and audiences alike. The doors will always be open, creativity will always be encouraged and the community will always be welcomed to meet, connect, participate and celebrate”.

Key Principles of the Theatre

– To create a vibrant, dynamic venue that has the flexibility to support a multitude of artistic events: a dance show with a school of children, an intimate play led by a couple of actors or a big screen cinema experience for film lovers.

– A theatre with character. A building with its own unique visual identity as well as functionality that sets it apart from other theatres in the region, attracting both audiences and artists alike.

– A desire to create a venue and programme that attracts professional acts whilst still nurturing and developing local artistic talent.

– To see the facility support economic development in the town, through employment, its supply chain, increased tourism, and footfall that boosts both the day and night time economies.
