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 drama@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. If you have your publicity available, why not send it now?

On the night Publicity and Programmes  Front of House would be happy to sell or distribute your programmes at the door. There is also a board where publicity for your company can be displayed. 

Technical 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  Let us know what time you will be arriving and we will arrange for someone to be at the theatre to let you in. 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.
