Encore is a friendly theatre group for the over 50s who want to engage with theatre more closely. Each session will focus on a different talk, workshop or Q&A session with a range of freelance art practitioners and industry professionals, alongside Orla O’Connor, Nottingham Playhouse’s Participation Officer.
