Covid-19 Update: (Jan 2021) Due to new lockdown restrictions we are having to reimagine our Reimagine season. All events will either be brought to you digitally or postponed and we will endeavour to update you on specific activities as soon as possible.

Either way we will be continuing to work behind the scenes to bring you some fantastic arts and wellbeing opportunities to enjoy at home!

Tom loves a laugh! 

But it’s no joke when he can’t even remember where he’s parked the car...

Fortunately, his loving wife Trish comes to the rescue...again!

Mark Lockyer’s moving adaptation of this absurdly normal story, poignantly asks us how do we keep dancing when the music between us starts to fade?

Having played to sell- out audiences across Ireland in 2019, St. Margaret’s house is delighted to host the plays UK premiere.  

Mark Lockyer returns to us after his hugely successful show ‘Living with the Lights On’ 

“Mark Lockyer is an intense, magnetic presence whose performance holds the whole evening together. Shower him with Gold” - Natasha Tripney, The Stage. 

“Mark Lockyer is a tour de force” Domonic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph 

“Lockyer beautifully conveys the sheer momentum of a life with the brakes all but broken. An engaging and energetic raconteur” Matt Trueman, Whatsonstage.
