The Torch Theatre is pleased to announce a brand-new programme of FREE events running from next month during January through to March. Thanks to the support of The National Lottery Community Fund, the Torch has put together an exciting programme of creative events for the community, which offers an escape from the cold wintery days, and will allow you to experience Torch Theatre’s truly unique brand of hospitality. 

The fortnightly daytime sessions are primarily aimed at those in the Pembrokeshire community aged 60 and over, but everyone is welcome. All sessions will take place in the Torch Theatre’s Joanna Field Gallery offering something for all.

Tim Howe, the Torch Theatre’s Youth & Community lead explains more:

“The professionally led creative activities will include arts and crafts, drama workshops, Zumba, and a book club linked to our cinema and theatre programming. Other activities on offer include access to the Torch Theatre’s play library featuring a range of plays, and a fabulous children’s toybox and colouring corner.”

The Torch Café will be home to a ‘Conversation Table’ where every two weeks members of the Torch Team will be available for you to get to know and talk about whatever you like.

Tim added: “We are thrilled to be supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, which will enable us to provide a fantastic range of free creative activity for our community.  

“As the arts centre for Pembrokeshire, we know the vital role we play for many members of our community, as a space to create and connect. We are also aware that we are a civic resource which everyone should be able to access. This funding seeks to better that relationship and throw open our doors to even more people at a time when finances are being squeezed.

“We know that older members of our community and families have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis. We hope that by offering our community the opportunity to access safe and regular creative connections with others that we will support everyone’s mental health and well-being.” 

In addition to all this activity, the Torch Theatre has a fun filled February half term of fantastic family things to do. Alongside the previously mentioned regular activities, there will be family arts and crafts, family Zumba and even the Torch Theatre’s first Welsh language drama morning for everyone called Theatr Gymraeg! 

All of the weekday sessions run from 10.30am – 12pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9th January. Check out the Torch Theatre’s website, social media posts, flyers and posters for details of dates and times of the things that interest you the most.
