INFORMATION FOR VISITING COMPANIES

Productions  We are always interested to hear from production companies, ensembles, groups, organisations and others, who are seeking venues for their productions. If you have an event that you wish to discuss please contact us at info@theherontheatre.com

The Theatre  We have a raised, proscenium arched, stage and raked auditorium, good lighting and sound facilities related to our size, with separate dressing room and stage level access for loading/unloading. There is a large car park with reserved space for incoming performers. Pleasant accommodation and dining facilities are available nearby.

Directions:  The theatre is 10 minutes from J35 on the M6 (follow signs for Milnthorpe). Take the A6 northbound and follow the signs for MILNTHORPE. Beetham is one mile before Milnthorpe. The theatre is signed on the left as you approach Beetham.

From the East, use A65 to M6 roundabout, then M6 southbound to J.35 and then as above. Warning - if approaching from North, do not take any exit to Kendal.
Map & Location

Posters, flyers, photographs  We need publicity material early. A large proportion of ticket sales are to audiences at previous events, so it is important to have "coming soon" displays six weeks or more, in advance. In view of on-line booking the Box Office only opens Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. If you have your publicity available, why not send it now?

Programmes  We provide free programmes to our audiences. Please send as early as possible a specimen programme for your show from which we will prepare our own copy.

Technical  We can USUALLY PROVIDE TECHNICAL HELP BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT. Whilst we strive to provide the best possible level of assistance to incoming companies, it should be noted that all our staff are volunteers and stage crew may not always be qualified technicians. A lighting plot and stage plan should be sent three to four weeks in advance.

Time of arrival  As early as possible and not later than 3.30 on the day of the performance. We commence at 7.30 . Audiences are admitted from 7 p.m. We have a bar which is open beforehand during an interval of 20 minutes. Only in exceptional circumstances and by prior arrangement when booking can this be varied.
