ArtBeat is our group for over 50s who want to develop their drama skills, explore their creativity and meet new people. No experience of performing is needed to join – everyone is welcome.

“In ArtBeat I have learned something about how plays are produced, and explored being creative. The participants are a friendly bunch, and I have made new friends who live locally, and who, like me, love going to the theatre.” Juliette


ArtBeat will return in January 2020 following a multimillion pound redevelopment of our theatre. Bookings will open in November and be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
