AN AMATEUR drama group is all set to hit the stage at its new home.
After performing across north Suffolk and Great Yarmouth for the past 35 years, The Quaysiders Dramatic Society have teamed up with the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield to unveil their new rehearsal facilities - as well as announcing their next performance.
Having performed two plays a year in the local area since 1975, usually in April and November, The Quaysiders run of performances ended in Christmas 2008 when their former rehearsal rooms at The Links on Corton Road were forced to close.
'The Quaysiders have been looking for new rehearsal space since that time and are pleased to announce that the Seagull Theatre is now the home of the group,' a spokesman said.
