About Us


StageTalk Magazine was launched on 1st December 2013 and presents news, previews, reviews and lots more from theatres in Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Cheltenham, Oxford and Stratford and other venues within an area loosely defined by the M4, M40 and M5 triangle.

The articles are constantly changing as news and reviews come in. There is a section on other events which lists, by town, stand-up, concerts or any other professional productions, so if you are promoting a show, please let us know. We also list and recommend restaurants near the theatres in those towns so if you are away from home, you’ll know where to eat. Please subscribe to the site or follow us on Twitter so you are always up to date.

We will, of course, welcome any feedback. Please go to our Contact Us page.
