Theatre at the Oak Room

We often have theatre productions – why not join our mailing list and be the first to hear?

The Oak Room makes a great performance space and is for hire by theatre companies.

Join us in the NEW YEAR for another theatre production!

Spellbound

Saturday 3rd February 2018 

A new one-woman show with Jackie Juno called SPELLBOUND (Being the True Tale of a Reluctant Witch Unable to Escape Her Destiny)

Confessional, funny, informative and profound – for anyone who has felt to be an outsider. A courageous coming-of-age tale, riveting in its honesty. Peppered with poetry, visuals and music… a hugely entertaining experience!

Tickets available HERE! The show is suitable for over 14’s only – some strong language and references to sexuality and sexual abuse.
