I went to see the Searchers at the Core in the summer. It is an intimate theatre ideal for concerts. I have been to others and the intimate setting makes it an evening to remember

I’m a regular visitor to the core supporting the wonderful shows they put on. There’s a great variety to choose from and wherever you sit you can see all of the stage. I also attend the Nadfas meetings which we have monthly.
