Swallow Theatre Association

The Association supports events that would not be viable in such a small rural venue, such as the Youth Drama Summer School, some professional theatre, and classical music.

When you become a Friend of The Swallow Theatre you also automatically become a member of The Swallow Theatre Association.

Theatre & Venue Hire

The Swallow Theatre and the refreshment room are both available for hire at very reasonable prices.

The Theatre can be hired for small conferences (up to 50 people), talks, presentations, classes, rehearsals and performances.

The refreshment room can be hired for meetings and classes.

Creative Retreat

For creative companies and individuals who want to get away from it all and have focussed production development or rehearsal time. We can offer packages that include the use of the theatre and the on-site self catering accommodation.

We can also offer lighting design, sound design and production photography services.
