Seven Drunken Nights

Theatre Severn

Tuesday May 14th 2019

National Dance Company Wales:

Cenedlaethol Cwmni Dawns Cymru


Tuesday 7th May 2019

That’ll  Be The Day

Theatre Severn

Thursday 25th April

Steeleye Span

Theatre Severn

Monday 8th April 2019

 It is inconceivable but nevertheless true that Steeleye Span are this year, celebrating fifty years in the music industry. Yes that’s fifty years.

There’s an intimacy about the space in the Walker Theatre, Actor’s are very close to their audience and a personal connection is made. In a space like Walker audience members feel they are personally being addressed. Terrifying for the actor but wholly rewarding for the audience....
