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)

You told us that you'd prefer it if our performance and live gigs were just a bit earlier and so now all evening performances start at 7.30pm.

We want to reward you for booking early and the tickets booked and paid for in advance are discounted. Please note that at a minute past midnight on the day of the show only "on the day" tickets are available. Please be sure to book in good time so that you can take advantage of the discounted ticket prices.

Flshclaw’s music may be tricky to define but it’s shockingly easy to become smitten with their sound within moments of listening. This is warm, intelligent music which is enhanced in performance by a backdrop of video and still projections. The band offers an evening of dusky soundscapes all the way through to seriously hi-tempo tunes. Whilst folk is always at its core, Fishclaw offers a very different and brave new “take” on folkdom, bringing it bang up to date and helping to take traditional tunes and brilliant musicianship to new audiences and most notably to younger devotees.
