An award-winning folk duo will bring the curtain down on a theatre's first season of socially-distanced shows next month.

Now, the theatre has announced its final performance of 2020 - with duo Roswell set to take to the stage on December 18.

Since forming in 2018, the duo, comprised of Zoe Wren and Jasmine Watkiss, have won the Purbeck Rising award, released their debut EP Remedy and sold out a headline show at the Green Note in London.
