The Swallow Theatre Association

Swallow Theatre Wall Plaque Picture

The Swallow Theatre Association, is a registered charity which has been affiliated to the theatre since 1997.

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.
