We are taking you on a slightly different journey this week. We had the pleasure of meeting Carys Williams at the Professional Lighting and Sound Association show in London last month. We started talking about the theatre where she works - The John Lyons Theatre. We were amazed that we had never heard of that theatre before, so we knew we just had to sit down to talk to Carys about it.

The John Lyons Theatre is located in Covent Garden within the CityLit building on Keeley Street between Holborn and Covent Garden tube stations. This is the ideal venue to host plays, theatre events, musical workshops...you name it.

I sat down with Carys and asked her speak about what’s on offer there, both in continuing professional development opportunities for the theatre professional, but also about the history of the theatre, their recent productions and just how you can use this facility for a upcoming project yourself.

If anything you heard today has piqued your interest, and perhaps you would like to take a look at their course book and offerings, head over to https://www.citylit.ac.uk/courses. They have loads of possibilities for theatre professionals to brush up on their skills like Stage management and technical theatre production or Prop Making for TV, Film and Theatre. There are plenty of acting, voice and directing courses too. And if you are thinking of looking at using the John Lyons theatre go to
