Mercury Studio Theatre

Join us for a series of short soap-box shout-outs and performances on why DIVERSITY MATTERS.

Hosted by Essex Book Festival and Essex Cultural Diversity Project, this event brings together people who want to champion and celebrate diversity in the arts and in our communities.

There will be several short informal presentations, with different artforms and voices represented, followed by a chance to chat over drinks and nibbles. There’ll also be a short ‘open mic’ slot as part of the evening, so come along, have your say, and share your thoughts and responses.

All are welcome to this free event.

Places are limited so please book.



Make a night of it by booking a pre-show meal at Food @ the Mercury. Simply add either a two (£13.95) or three course (£15.95) meal to your basket along with your theatre tickets.

No need to choose what you are having in advance – simply select from the delicious options available on the night.

This show has been paired with our Primrose menu. Click here to take a look!
