Questors Theatre tour and free drink. www.questors.org.uk
Meet at 8pm in the Grapevine, inside the Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane, Ealing W5 5BQ (about five mins from Ealing Broadway station.) There is a theatre car park and free parking nearby.
The Questors is a fabulous busy thriving community theatre, the largest in Europe and stages about twenty shows a year. This event is an opportunity to find out more about the theatre itself, have a backstage tour and a free drink! The Grapevine bar where we are meeting is a lovely pub, inside the theatre, is staffed seven days a week by volunteers and must have the cheapest prices in London. We couldn’t believe it…. everyone thought they’d been undercharged at last visit! They also have a very good choice of real ales!
The Questors was formed in 1929 and are rightly proud of their achievements…. ‘Over our 80-year history we have: bought our own site; raised funds for and built the buildings you see today; and produced over 1,300 productions. We have launched the careers of directors, actors, playwrights and designers. Our activities have been covered on television, radio, and in books, magazines and academic journals. We have arranged international theatre exchanges, new plays festivals, and community theatre projects, and we have one of the largest youth theatres in Britain. We have taken productions to venues as far flung as North America and China. All of this is testament to the tremendous achievement of all the thousands of members who have contributed to every aspect of The Questors over the last 80 years and more, transforming us into the largest independent community theatre in Europe.’
This is a joint event with Arts Link London
