From an evening of comedy featuring Britain’s Got Talent finalist Daliso Chaponda and other award winning comics like Jack Gleadow and Yuriko Kotani, to family favourite pantomimes such as Cinderella and Peter Pan, there truly is something for everyone. And if it’s live music you’ve been missing, look no further than the ‘That 80s Rock Show’ tribute and the festival-themed HallFest which showcases no fewer than 14 acts in one-day with The Black Delta Movement headlining! 

Marketing & Events manager, Joel Peart, said “we’re mindful of how this last year has been for everyone and we’re delighted to be able to offer the people something to look forward to with their friends and family this summer. Not to mention supporting the arts industry by giving crew members and performers the opportunity to work again.”
