Theatre Tours & Spring Coffee Morning

Theatre Tours & Spring Coffee Morning


Following the success of the theatre tours held recently, we are pleased to offer another chance to get a glimpse behind the scenes of our lovely theatre. Hear about the history of the DPT, go on stage and be guided through the technical aspects of staging a show and then see the actors' backstage facilities. Each tour will be guided by Edward Thomas, whose knowledge of the history of the DPT is unsurpassed.
The Friends are also holding a Spring Coffee Morning at the theatre at the same time so you will be able to buy coffee (or tea or soft drink) and cake in the bar as well as perhaps bagging yourself a cake from the cake stall. Books, jewellery, tombola, raffles and lottery game will also be on offer.
There will be an opportunity for buying a memento of your theatre tour in the form of Edward’s informative book "The Playhouse in the Park", which will be specially discounted on the day for those doing a tour, or some lovely notecards with photographs depicting the unique safety curtain or some of the beautiful aspects of our theatre you will see during the tour.
Do hurry to get your tickets for the tours – priced at £5 per person - as numbers are limited and the tours held in February sold out very quickly.
Book in advance to avoid disappointment by calling Maria from the Friends of the Devonshire Park Theatre’s marketing team on 07955 432619 or by emailing
Please join us on 20 May. Remember if you are coming to the Box Office that morning, why not stop for a coffee?
