Theatre Transport Service

We have had feedback from some of our members and past members that they have difficulty in getting to the theatre in the evenings and are missing out on our productions. We would like to address this by offering return journeys to the theatre, with either the community bus or willing members facilitating. There would be a small charge.

If you have pals who no longer come because of transport difficulties, please let them know. If this service would be of use to you please contact Sarah McCarthy on 01206 395649 or
