Headgate Play Readers

Meetings held on the first Sunday of the month (check What's On for any exceptions)

Are you interested in reading plays? Why not join us in a new venture at The Headgate, where we plan to read and explore a range of different plays in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Everyone will get the chance to read, so numbers will be limited for each session. A facilitator will be on hand to contribute to discussion about the plays if people wish. Absolutely no previous knowledge of the play or acting ability is necessary!

To find out more, please email the co-ordinator on


All sessions will start at 6.30pm prompt, and include a break for refreshments.  Estimated finish time will be 9.00pm.
