'Round Back

Small performances for small audiences

August to October, 2020

Live outdoor theatre! Set amongst the furniture and props from 40 years of Guild productions, our summer series of short plays, stories and performances literally takes place behind The Guild. We’ve built an outdoor stage with small audience ‘islands’ so that you can safely enjoy local playwrights, comedians, poets and activists creating art in our challenging times.

Each weekend we bring you a new lineup of live performances ‘round back at the Guild Hall.
