A unique and intimate pop-up theatre, Roundabout promises top-quality new writing in an incredible venue. Combining comfortable seating and a great view of the actors with cutting edge sound and lighting technology Roundabout is an unmissable theatrical experience.

Previously seen at The Quays in 2015 and in Eccles in 2016, this year it will be popping up in Peel Park, Little Hulton, as part of the Little Hulton Goes Large Festival Thu 7 – Sun 10 September.
