Our aim is to provide a balanced programme of events under the Forum banner i.e. events organised by ourselves rather than by the many different groups who hire the Forum for their own productions. We always aim to offer a good selection of events in the pipeline and we are continuing to develop and grow this facet over the years to cover a broader spectrum of events and attract new audiences.
Come along to the Forum aThe Forum Cinema is a poplular strand of our activity and our audience enjoys a wide variety of films. Our main programme takes place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, when other events are not being held on those days. In addition, we provide further screenings during school holidays and for specific more popular films. Our prices are very competitive and the quality of our digital cinema equipment is hard to match. We have a loyalty scheme: See 10 films and watch the 11th film for just £1.
Live Streamed Events
Come along to the Forum and catch one of the wide range of special events streamed from Live shows, such as those provided by National Theatre Live, The Royal Opera House, as well as a number of one-off events. These come to us via our satelite link. This programme provides top-calss professional plays direct from the National Theatre and other venues, with added bonus of a number of different cameras (for close-ups etc.) making the experience as intimate and even more compelling than a seat in the actual performance theatre.
Room Hire and Regular Activities
A wide range of activities are available to the community, details of which are included elsewhere on the website. Many local performing groups hire the Forum for their performances. An important source of income comes from those individuals and groups hiring our rooms or the main hall, and this makes the Forum the venue of choice for dozens of activities.
