What makes a welcoming theatre?
There are many things that shape your experience when you visit a theatre; a friendly chat with box office staff, enjoying a delicious coffee in the cafe, feeling like you're part of your local community, or being entertained by the panto! The public vote gives you the chance to celebrate your local theatre and all it does to welcome you.
