Live & Local @ The Glebe

Bringing the community together to enjoy high-quality, entertaining and affordable professional live theatre, music, dance and family shows.

The Glebe has been hosting Live & Local shows at the Glebe since early 2013. We try to put on a wide variety to appeal to all age groups, and shows are always very well attended. All profits go to the Glebe. The season lasts from late September to the end of May.

Details of the 2017/18 season will be published here in late June. Sign up here to be among the first to know!


Tickets for all shows can be booked on-line, by email, calling 01773 853260, or from reception from 1 month before the performance.
