Brochures are mailed out to those on the Joseph Rowntree Theatre Mailing list.

The brochures are produced:-

SUMMER (May – Sept)
Deadline for information 1st week in April. Released 3rd week in April

The timing of the Summer Brochure can vary due to the Easter holiday.

If you provide leaflets they will be displayed in the holders provided; they will not be handed out.

A1 portrait posters will be displayed in strict chronological order. All smaller posters will be displayed at the discretion of the Theatre Board. As the display cases are A1 portrait in size, four A3 portrait posters would be an acceptable alternative.

Hirers should note that A1 portrait posters provided for the exterior case will be displayed in strict chronological order.

Posters are updated on the Monday following the previous production except Bank Holidays when they will be replaced on the Tuesday.

Two A1 posters listing all the current events will be displayed throughout the year.
