Marple Bridge & Mellor

Local Theatre Group

Please contact Carol Rice, local theatre Co-ordinator at least ONE month prior to the date of the play. This will allow time to purchase the tickets.

Play tickets are between £7.50 to £9.50. Note: ticket costs must be reimbursed to Carol on the evening of the play. If you are unable to attend on the night, you will still have to pay for your ticket unless you are able to find a replacement person to attend in your place.

Please note: at the time of notifying the new season plays to the newsletter, the Brookdale Theatre has not announced plays due to their recent flooding. We will consider plays once they are known.
