Rural theatre company Pentabus is starting its 50th birthday celebrations by moving to a new home at the refurbished Ludlow Assembly Rooms in Shropshire.

After 40 years on the farm estate at the Old School in Bromfield, Pentabus says the move will make it more accessible to artists and audiences alike.

Verity Overs-Morrell, Pentabus’s executive director, said, “the entire Pentabus team are thrilled to make Ludlow Assembly Rooms our new home. The warmth received during our recent production of Tim Foley’s Driftwood and our young writers’ showcases was truly heartening.”

Steve Catanach, interim business manager at Ludlow Assembly Rooms, added, “everyone at the Assembly Rooms is delighted to welcome Pentabus to our building. Together we’ll be able to provide high-quality theatrical productions that’ll be accessible to Ludlow’s residents and visitors alike.”
