Parliament Week co-incides with the show week of one of our shows – namely Hay Fever. Hay Fever was written in the 1930s, the Plaza was built in the 1930s, and Romsey Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Scoiety (RAODS) – the charity that owns and manages the 231 seat theatre – was formed in the 1930s.
In addition to our main auditorium, we have two bar areas. One of them is large enough to use as a small exhibition space. The event would be an exhibition contrasting the UK Parliament, Romsey and the Plaza between the 1930s and now, exploring the history of the UK Parliament and how it has developed over the years. Attendees of the show – approximately 1,000 members of the general public – will be able to look at the exhibition before the show, and during the interval.
