The theatre has anillustrious history as a live music venue. As the 'Cavern in the Town' in the Sixties, Beat group The Small Faces had a regular residency. In the 1970s, as the Notre Dame Hall, The Rolling Stones played there along with The Who. But punk ruled supreme and the venue hosted some riotous early landmark gigs by The Sex Pistols. The Clash previewed their "London Calling" material there in 1979 before recording the seminal album the following month. Therefore it wasn't long before music started playing a vital role in the theatres programming. Macy Gray, Boy George, Tommy Emmanuel, John Mayall, Michael Feinstien, Dame Cleo Laine, Hazel O'Connor, David McAlmont, Ruby Turner and Tony Christie are just a handful of names that have played the theatre in the last few years.

Beautiful, fawn-like, but a hostage to love, Laura du Lay arrives in the remote county of Northumberlandhamptonshire to take up her position as confidential secretary to the reclusive Forbes Murdston. She has ignored for as long as she can the unsettling rumours that surround her new employer, his ominous teutonic manservant Klaus, swarthy-but-sweaty lawyer Roger Parchment and the ancient mansion. But Murdston's violent mood-swings can only signify one thing...
And her an orphan!
