The AGM is the time to take stock of the year before, looking at all elements of the Playhouse. It is also the opportunity for members to question the committee, and to elect new committee members.

If you are interested in joining the Playhouse Management Committee, we would be delighted to hear from you.  For more information, either have a chat with a member of the committee at the AGM, or contact us and we will be happy to pass the enquiry on.

 We are especially excited to announce that the AGM is the first Playhouse event to make use of the newly-finished bar/foyer after its recent refit.  Please come along and have a look at the amazing new design of the foyer, and enjoy a free glass of wine or soft drink with us.

All are welcome, but only members can vote on Playhouse matters.
