Hello, and welcome to They Eat Culture’s blog!

They Eat Culture is a direct creative intervention into the cultural life of Preston and Lancashire. We programme, commission, & produce quality arts & cultural work, and run culturally engaging, in-deep projects co-designed with communities.

This blog is a multi-authored space edited by The Eat Culture’s Assistant Programmer and Engagement Co-ordinator, Charlotte Berry! It establishes the ongoing progress of theatre and performance in Preston in sited spaces such as; Preston’s bus station, train station, flag market and our home venue, The Continental. 

With recent support by Fuel Theatre and involvement with their three year project, New Theatre In Your Neighbourhood, we wish to continue bringing great work to Preston! And most importantly we wish to continue working with the Yappers Club; a theatre club set up by Fuel and Maddie Costa, which inspires new conversations between people who make, watch and write about theatre.

The Yappers Club: A new way of enjoying theatre and meeting like-minded people. Inspired by the classic book club format, Yappers Theatre Club is a new way to experience the many innovative and brilliant performances that are staged in Preston.

We hope our blog will encourage you to see the work we programme at The Continental and get involved with the many projects we work on in and around Preston!
