This is a lovely little theatre on the edge of Sutton Coldfield (near Chester Road station). Great acting, intimate venue. Recommended.

There are a good selection of plays and shows throughout the year. A small volunteer run theatre with professional standards. Parking is a bit short close by, but Chester Road station is 150 yards away.
