This was our third visit and second Christmas presentation. This is a brilliant theatre, in a great location. We travel from Manchester area, visit attractions en route, eat out and stay over. It’s a great excuse for a night out. Much better than the normal...More

Hi, our website has full details of those shows via our handy calendar, it details which shows are on both those days. You can choose the performances you're interested on and it routes you to find out more about each show. The answer is that we have After the Dance by Terence Rattigan in the Main House and Remarkable Invisible by Laura Eason in the Studio. Both shows are TBTL productions and there is one matinee of our Studio show on the 24th. Details of both shows and what they're about can be found online, where you can also book. I'm not allowed to post the address of the website but if you don't want to do this online you can call our Box Office on 017687 74411 and they'll be happy to give you more information and take your booking.
