In line with Government advice we are not currently running any of our workshops, sessions or events. The welfare of our participants, audiences, artists and staff is paramount, and we also want to support the valiant efforts of our health service. Our latest announcement can be found here.

Whilst we are working on ways that we can support our community, take a look at some ways you can Get Creative with CFT at home. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming our audiences back as soon as we can.

Community Projects

Elders Company

Community Festivals

Fun Palaces is a nationwide campaign that promotes culture at the heart of community and community at the heart of culture, with an annual weekend of action every October created by, for and with local people. 


We offer a variety of heritage activities that enable people to engage with our building and history in different ways. Our vibrant heritage work depends on the continued support of valued volunteers, and offers opportunities to gain skills, meet new people and develop confidence.

We are always keen to expand our volunteering pool and would love to hear from individuals of all abilities and backgrounds who are interested in the Theatre and its history.

It's nice to be more fun and extrovert, when life has made us "grown-up" over the years!


I've enjoyed getting theatre back in to my life after many years away


Gives me the chance to have fun and enjoy the company of like-minded people
