Cast is set to welcome pop-up theatre, Roundabout, to the Market Square from September 19-22. In partnership with theatre company Paines Plough, Roundabout will bring new plays, comedy, music and community events to the town centre.

Highlights include an evening of drag, cabaret and burlesque from top local performers, alongside four new plays exploring adoption, life as a carer, the black British experience and a family-friendly detective adventure.

Local creative organisations also set to take to the stage include b:friend, Doncopolitan, Cre8ive Dance Academy and Hall Cross Academy.
