Weds, 24th May – 7:30pm – Smash Night – The Angel

A night of improvised theatre and comedy – no one knows what will happen – not even the performers! The audience will be able to give suggestions then watch as the performers spontaneously transform

Witness them take to the stage with nothing but their wits and transform YOUR suggestions spontaneously into scenes and stories that have never been seen before and will never be seen again. This show will also include the Millions of Voices group who’ll be warming up for their Stars Wars themed improv show at The Playhouse in June.

Step away from your phone and slow things down…

Weds, 24th May – Letter Writing Club – Nonsuch Studios

An evening of postcard and letter writing. Step away from Whatsapp and e-mail to spend an evening writing letters to friends and family. These days the kind of mail most people receive is the boring and depressing kind so why not change things up and meet new people at the same time?

All materials will be provided and the ticket fee covers the price of postage for 2 letters or post cards.
