The Mercury has teamed up with the theatre, in High Street, to offer you a chance to see a show of your choice once a month for 12 months completely free.

TV personality and sarcastic funny-man Jason Manford will top this year’s bill as he brings his UK tour Muddle Class to Weston in August.

But before that, Elvis lands in the building in March with the show This Is Elvis.
