Theatre Café

2nd November 10:30am - 11:30am


Theatre Café is an informal monthly discussion group that explores issues within theatre, inspired by a show on one of our three stages during that month. Each session will begin with our guest speaker and people then have the opportunity to discuss, debate, ask questions or sit back and listen over a hot drink.
