Blog: (Belated) Happy New Year!

Published by Westacre Theatre on


It seems that 2015 is now upon us. Anyone managed to keep their New Year’s Resolutions this long? Anyone at all? No, I thought not. Perhaps I’ll have more luck with mine; to update this blog. So, welcome, one and all, to what I hope will be the first of many a blog post to grace your screens in the year to come!


Now then, what is happening at Westacre Theatre this year? Well, what are you asking me for? I’m afraid I’m not the wealth of information you seem to think I am. Have a look at the brochure, instead. That’ll tell you everything you need to know. There’s a new one out. It came out only last week and it’s a good one. I mean, really good. Here, have a look. Jam-packed full of films, livestreams, workshops, visiting productions, music, a couple more films and, of course, a healthy smattering of our own in-house productions. It’s going to be a busy season.


To add to the busyness, and following on from our successful Food Fridays, we are introducing the Riverside Café. Open on Wednesdays to accompany all those films I mentioned, the Riverside Café will be serving my personal favourite type of food: lunch. If you are more picky than I am, and would like to know what variety of lunch can be expected, then have a look at the menu. It’s on the website.


Oh, here it is. Click that link to have a look.


But of course, before all that can happen, there is spring-cleaning to be done! We want the place looking spick and span for the new season. The nooks shall meet with a feather duster. The crannies shall meet with Henry the Hoover.  And the resident spiders, Geoff, Clara and Sebastian, shall be evicted. They haven’t been paying the rent.

There is also the unenviable task of cleaning under the seats in the auditorium. This may prove to be quite an adventure – who knows what we may find? Precious jewels? Ancient Byzantine gold? Or bits of old gels and dustbunnies? A veritable treasure trove awaits! I shall report back in the next exciting instalment of the Westacre Blog.


In the meantime, you should book tickets for something. How about Treasure Island? That’s coming up quite soon. Hope to see you there – I shall be comparing bounty with Long John Silver! Ta-ra!
