New Year, New logo, and still the same high-quality productions and events for you to enjoy in 2018 at the EM Forster Theatre. We are excited to announce that 2018 will see us unveiling a new website and a new booking system to make your online experience a whole lot easier. The Spring programme is diverse in content and will appeal to a wide audience, but we are confident that the quality will be consistently high and that there will be something for everyone in this season’s offerings.

We are delighted to welcome for the first time The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars as they perform Ronnie Scott’s Soho Songbook, book quickly as they are known to sell-out their shows Theatre lovers will be delighted that we continue to offer excellent NT Live productions, with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Julius Caesar and critically acclaimed Young Marx all showing this season. Live theatre comes in the form of Wisdom of  a fool and Gonzo Moose and their brand of hilarious theatre The Thing that Came from Over There. Younger audiences will be delighted to see that they are well catered for with, Jack and the Beanstalk, Christopher’s Caterpillars and the very funny tale of a young dog who challenges the idea that ‘Dogs don’t do Ballet.’ More serious ballet lovers will be delighted that Ballet Central returns to EM Forster theatre, whilst we are delighted to maintain our reputation for attracting top academic figures with Dr Charles Moseley answering the question, ‘Who wrote Shakespeare?’. Our major Art exhibition is entitled ‘Flow’ and will be accompanied by a lecture on the topic by Harriet Hill.

These are only the tip of the iceberg, so do read on yourself. There’s plenty to look forward to in the coming months.
