New Year New BETA

We’ve been a little quiet recently (especially in comparison to the two months we spent positively bellowing about Outpost) and it’s likely to stay that way for the next month or so. As usual though, we’re working on some rather ambitious plans behind the scenes all which will be revealed not too far into 2015![…]

Unfortunately, sometimes there are things even we and our amazing team of helpers have no control over – and[…]

Plymouth Theatre Scene – Where Do We Go Now?

Contrary to what’s in the season brochure, we won’t be hosting BETA at Outpost this Wednesday (15th October) but we will be doing something equally, if not more, exciting!
