Or almost all of us.
STATUS is a show about someone who doesn’t want his any more. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.
The Pound arts centre, the arts hub for north Wiltshire, offers a year round programme of performances, workshops, a youth theatre and exhibitions.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for all people to experience, enjoy and engage with the arts. We believe that the arts can transform people’s lives regardless of their age, circumstances, ability or interests.
A pre-show social, time to relax, work, meet up with friends, or grab a change of scenery with the little ones… All great ways to spend time in our café.
We are fully licensed and serve fresh, vegetarian and locally sourced food, including vegan and gluten free options.
The Pound offers a fully equipped auditorium seating 100 people. The seating can also be put away to create a large hall space. We have full AV capabilities and with a green room and technical booth it's the ideal place for performances, talks, conferences and classes.
