The Wee Theatre on the ground floor has had a big make over: with a fresh lick of paint in both performance and backstage rooms, its new black out panels for the windows and of course, its hand made bright and gorgeous cushions, it is ready for action!
We thank everyone who contributed to make the theatre a more child friendly space.
On Wednesday 27 July from 12 to 1pm pop over to the far corner of the St Margaret’s House car park, where we ran the consultation workshop last year. We’d love your help to re-home seats from ‘Space To Sit’ and have chat on what you would like to see happening in the garden.
So bring your ideas and tools along if you would like to join us, it would be lovely to see you for a cup of tea! more
