Free-to-borrow theatre texts for Hull residents

Our new theatre library, in association with Oberon Books and with support from Nick Hern Books and Paines Plough, is an ever-growing collection of the latest plays and theatre reference books, ensuring that world-class texts are available for any resident of Hull to borrow free-of-charge.
