The evening took place to mark the launch of the Church Street venue’s autumn/winter programme.

Guests attending the “very special event” were able to enjoy drinks as they became the first to hear about the theatre’s shows for the coming months.

The highlight of the autumn/winter calendar, as always, will be the theatre’s festive panto, which this year will be rags-to-riches fairytale Cinderella.
