Talk Show Club – Thursday 14th March

Inspired by the classic book club, CPT’s Talk Show is the new way to see and chat about unusual theatre. The set up is simple: members are welcomed and accompanied to the performance by a CPT artist, and are then invited to discuss their experience with the group at the end of the show. Free to join and a great way to meet new people, Talk Show Club members also benefit from priority booking, affordable tickets, and exclusive drink offers.
