2017/2018

Theatre / Poetry

The Bunbury Banter Theatre Company produced a series of bi-monthly events, happening between September 2017 and March 2018, under the title A Play, A Poet & A Pastry.

A Play, A Poet & A Pastry involved the high-quality semi-staging of a new studio play, presented alongside poetry written in response to the script, which was also performed during the event. Following this, there were pastries and an informal Q&A with the actors, creatives and poet, which concluded each evening.

Supported by the The Holywood Trust and Dumfries and Galloway Arts Council’s Regional Arts Fund.


“Very original, fresh and enjoyable, a very warm experience… there was a lot of love in the room”

“Bringing theatre back to its roots”


Marchbank Bakery were the wonderful suppliers of the Pastries for each event.

Also, huge thanks to Shax for assisting us with our set and props!
