theatre encourages wellbeing
" regular theatre attendance promotes flourishing and meaningful social interaction, psychological stimulation, and positive emotions" Russell Vandenbroucke and Suzanne Meeks
As part of a recent study funded by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), ‘Psychological Aspects of Theatre Audience Engagement' surveyed single and season ticket buyers at a major regional theatre in America. The study found that attending theatre contributes to a shared sense of community as well as having positive impact on personal emotions.
So with that in mind why not book a theatre break in Winchester and catch one of the excellent performances at the Theatre Royal in 2020.

For the ultimate theatre break why not stay just around the corner in one of our two Tower Street Properties. No.79 Tower Street is a charming period property with two generous sized bedrooms. No.81 Tower Street is a highly attractive, well proportioned three bedroom period house behind a pretty victorian facade set back from the street with a beautiful front garden.
Tower Street is in the heart of city centre meaning all the shops and restaurants are in walking distance. The Theatre Royal is a stones throw away just around the corner so a perfect base for that theatre break.
All our properties include WiFi so you can post your beautiful holiday property photos online. Remember to tag @AD8Winchester!
