#REACH Project – Touring in the North East

We were delighted to be one of nine partner venues in the #REACH project which ran from April 2014 to December 2016 and toured nine high-quality, contemporary theatre productions to eight venues across the north east including ours.

We welcomed some fantastic shows, grew our audience tenfold and our volunteers gained so many new skills and knowledge along with a wide network of other venue staff to share idea’s and ask advice. All of this was made possible by Arts Council England funding and the amazing #REACH team from ARC Stockton and DepArts. A huge thank you to everyone who made the project possible. We’ve already seen a lasting legacy with one contemporary show already on sale and more to be booked throughout the year.

New What’s On brochure for 2017

presentation1Our brand new What’s On brochure for our 2017 Winter to Spring season has arrived! It’s packed with all the shows and events coming up at our venue over the next few months.

Highlights include brand new play Ventoux by 2Magpies Theatre telling the gripping story of the dramatic battle between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in the Tour de France 2000 on Mont Ventoux. North East favourites The Caffreys return along with The Baldy Holly Band and a hillarious comedy triple bill with three plays in one night by Baroque Theatre Company.

2017 is also a very special year for us as we continue to celebrate 10 years of our venue opening.
