Live at the Quarry is an exciting new socially distanced event, presented by Culture Weston and Theatre Orchard, featuring collaborations with The Brit Bar and Loves Cafe.

A series of shows will take place under canvas in a performance stretch tent with socially spaced table and bench seating.

Doors open 30 minutes ahead of performance time. There will be a locally-stocked bar operating in the evening, serving a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and tasty snacks. ID will be required for the purchase of alcohol, no person under the age of 18 will be served alcohol.

Tickets are sold in tables of up to 6 people, with a choice of bench on arrival and a bar providing table service. Some performances will offer NHS workers the chance to get a complimentary table for 6 – see individual show listings for info.
