Rebecca Pryle, of The Bread & Roses Theatre Company, said “We have been running regular new writing night The Platform since 2012, and since other companies and groups have started putting up scratch performances and showcases out of which the idea to create a permanent pub theatre at the venue was born.
After some major refurbishing work of the space and the investment in lights and stages - all sponsored by the fabulous Bread & Roses Pub - we are now ready to officially launch the theatre on the 1st of November 2014!”
Tessa Hart, of The Bread & Roses Theatre Company, said “The theatre sits in a brilliant location. The Bread & Roses Theatre aims to program a wide-spread variety of productions and seeks to entertain local and far-reaching audiences as well as providing theatre-makers with a space to develop and present their work. The venue is run by fellow theatre-makers on a voluntary basis.
We are also offering an extremely attractive deal to visiting companies and producers, no up-front hire fees just a straight forward box office split and you can even use the theatre for free on certain week nights!
