notes The Torch is a celebrated producing theatre company, and the striking new theatre was re-launched in March 2008 with a highly acclaimed version of the award-winning musical 'The Hired Man'. The Torch Theatre Company boasts an impressive repertoire including 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest', 'Neville's Island', 'Abigail's Party', 'The Little Shop of Horrors', ‘The Norman Conquests’, ‘An Inspector Calls’, ‘Accidental Death of an Anarchist’ and The Christmas show is always a firm family favourite.

The intimate Main House offers a wonderful space to see professionals perform. With just under 300 comfortable seats, everyone feels close to the action. The multi-million pound makeover has also created a new Studio Theatre, which allows the Torch to offer a choice of films and live performances between the two spaces every night of the week (except Sundays). In addition to the Torch's own professional productions, there is a regular programme of first rate touring shows ranging from musical theatre, drama and comedy, dance, opera, lectures and the best in live music. The Studio Theatre may also be used as a meeting place and is a valuable community facility.

The Torch Theatre also screens the latest movie blockbusters alongside art house and off-beat films and visitors can also take pleasure in viewing paintings, photographs, ceramics, crafts and installations by local and national artists in the Joanna Field Gallery. The programme changes regularly, and entry is free.
