Sorry for delay in answering but there is no parking at the theatre but try the railway station which is just across the road - we have never failed to find parking there.

On Friday evening you can see Taking Steps or Goth Weekend. On Saturday afternoon and evening is A brief history of women. I have seen all three plays and found them all to be highly entertaining.
