Box Office open Mon-Fri, 11am to 3pm
If you are familiar with Bishop’s Stortford you cannot fail to notice how the town is changing and evolving as we all prepare to step into the third decade of the 21st century together: There are more of us, we are coming from from increasingly diverse backgrounds and we have an ever widening set of interests and likes. We (the staff and trustees) want to make sure that as out town grows we keep up with it, walking with it every step of the way into our shared future.
To make sure that we can do this, we have spent time over the last two years updating our governance arrangements, reviewing our programming to reflect changing tastes and needs and continually seeking to improve the quality of our facilities. As part of this process we felt that the time was right for us to choose a new name that was in keeping with this forward looking vision.
A New Chapter
Same old us!
For nearly 60 years we have been at the heart of our community entertaining, educating and supporting local people. Since opening we have had well over a millions visits from people who have been able to enjoy arts, history, performance, literature and a multitude of family occasions. People have taken their first steps on to a stage with us, seen their first real show, met their true love, started new careers here, discovered amazing things about their town, caught up with old friends, made new ones and had cake (lots of cake!)
Through all the ups and downs, trials and triumphs we have loved sharing every minute of it with you and regardless of whether you have been with us since the beginning back in ’63 or have only just discovered us you will always find us here with the “same old” friendly welcome that you have always had.
