If you are on your own a visit to the theatre can be a daunting prospect. But not with our Friendly Faces scheme.

It is aimed at providing a welcome for anyone keen to see a show or film but who fears turning up solo might be overwhelming.

Friendly Faces is for those who are bereaved, lonely, or just lacking confidence in stepping out to visit the theatre.

The Friendly Faces team, led by theatre trustee Joan Thame, can arrange for people to share a table at the interval in their own special group to discuss the event over a drink. It is a great way to meet and make new friends.

But if they just want to be alone – and just have a welcoming smile – that is fine too.

For more information please call the box office on 01263 822347 or drop in to chat with staff.
