G&M Welcome

All the great civilizations of the world are rooted in extraordinary tales of gods and monsters, heroes and heroines, good and evil. We are dedicated to sharing the myths and legends of the recent and distant past which define who we are today. 

Our aim is to bring local communities together by enabling all people, irrespective of age, education, financial circumstances, physical ability or ethnic background, to access and participate in stimulating and entertaining free theatre. 

Come rain or shine, the Open Air Theatre at The Scoop has been delighting audiences since 2003, with a terrific free programme that has ranged from lively musicals to Greek classics. As well as packing in the crowds...by breaking down the perceived barriers of the arts, to attract a highly diverse and enthusiastic audience. Long may it continue!
