The Chapel Field North arts venue's spring season features a packed programme of entertainment.

Adam Taylor, The Garage's executive director, said: 'I'm really thrilled with the season ahead. We have professional shows like Me and My Bee which was developed at a Scratch Night here 18 months ago, alongside our Youth Theatre Company presenting their show The Changing Room, part of National Theatre Connections.

'As ever in our auditorium there is a lovely mix of local companies and some truly wonderful national touring shows.'

The season kicks off with Kaleido Film Collective and Feral Foxy Ladies' I Would Like to Get to Know You, a cabaret-esque collection of real life dating stories. INK on the Road features the best new short plays from East Anglian writers performed at the INK Festival, and fEAST Theatre's latest offering takes us to Morston during World War II, with an adaptation of Jeremy Page's Salt.
