Venue:  Workington Hall

What's it all about?

The Oddsocks Theatre company is bringing a unique experience to Workington, in the form of Macbeth!

The performance itself will be held outside the hall in the park.  This is so we don't have to restrict numbers and as many of you can enjoy it as possible.  There is no charge and there is no need to book, just turn up.

Here's some useful information if you are planning on joining us:

Parking – there is no parking available on site.  Nearest car parks are Horse Close CA14 4YB and Udale Street/Ladies Walk CA14 3BA.  Charges may apply so please check before parking.

What to wear – comfortable clothing and prepare for all weathers.  This is an outdoor performance and we all know what the British weather is like!
