Summer Theatre 2018

 
Summer Theatre 2018
These performances will take place in parks across the borough giving as many people as possible the opportunity to see at least one performance.
 
Due to the nature and locations of the parks in Tameside we recommend using public transport or walking to these venues if possible as parking can often be very difficult.
 
The entire series, organised by Tameside Council Cultural Services with the support of Greater Manchester Arts (GMA) has been branded “smoke-free”. This campaign aims to increase the number of healthy, outdoor, smoke-free child and family friendly events. The initiative - supported by Tameside’s public health team - means smokers will be politely asked to not smoke at the performances.
