At Prema we strive to offer something rather different by way of performance and live music. We have a particular interest in edgy, funny theatre which uses both physicality and stunning visuals to tell a story in a remarkable and entertaining way.

We warmly welcome families to attend both music and theatre here at the arts centre. We suggest minimum ages for shows and sometimes offer a family deal ticket for theatre events to make a memorable evening out all the more affordable.

A family ticket is for 2 adults and 2 kids (or equivalent)
