Theatre Evening and Backstage Tour. - link - poster
Friday 31st October 2008. A behind the scenes trip to the hilarious Michael Frayn comedy “Noises Off”. Starting in the auditorium, we learnt about the history of the theatre, we had a tour of the stage area, visited the Control room and viewed the Forum theatre. We all then enjoyed a glass of wine and some nibbles in the hospitality suite before seeing the performance. The evening was a great success, the tour and explanation combined with the choice of 'Noises Off' was an inspired choice.

A illustrated talk on Owls by Ian McGuire (with a live owl). - poster -
Thursday 23rd October. Ian is an experienced professional speaker, dedicated bird of prey conservationist and a talented photographer. At least 50 people turned up and everyone seemed to enjoy the evening. Ian brought his Barn Owl and gave an excellent presentation. link to Wild Owl website
