The Place opened in January 2003, following conversion from a

130-seat theatre auditorium, with associated technical facilities
and rehearsal rooms. Currently home to three drama groups and one
musical / light opera group, The Place presents a varied season of
shows throughout the year, both from its home companies and from
occasional visiting theatre companies.
