The 2022 Programme
See below for events by date and time
Tickets for all events are priced as low as possible at £5 except the writing workshops at £15 and Dyad Productions which is a Maltings' production.
Some live events and all Zoom events are free but booking is still essential. Prior booking is much preferred as entry on the day cannot be guaranteed.
Tickets are booked through EventBrite (not at The Maltings) and will be sent by email, including the Zoom link for online events.
