The Maddermarket Theatre and Iron House Launch Partnership

Yesterday The Maddermarket Theatre launched their partnership with contemporary restaurant, The Iron House.

This exciting new partnership between the two popular venues in the Norwich Lanes entitles Maddermarket Theatre ticket holders to receive a generous 20% off food and drinks bill for pre-show dining at the prestigious, city-centre restaurant.

The cast of Steel Magnolias, The Maddermarket Theatre’s up-coming in-house production, joined The Iron House’s Staff yesterday afternoon to launch the partnership with a photoshoot- just in time for the show’s opening night.

Steel Magnolias opens this Friday 18th October. The play written by Robert Harling and presented by The Maddermarket Theatre’s very own in-house company The Norwich Players is a hilarious and touching comedy-drama that is a real testament to the power of female friendship. Set in the 1980’s, in the deep American South the moving story sees Truvy and her girls gossip, laugh and sport some truly wonderful 80’s hairstyles. But when tragedy strikes, the women’s bond is tested like never before. Having inspired the much-loved 1980’s cult-classic film starring Dolly Parton, the show is not one to be missed – and now can be enjoyed after a freshly-cooked, pre-show meal at The Iron House, just a 60 second walk from the theatre! 

General Manager of The Maddermarket Theatre, Alice Wright, said, “We are really excited to announce The Iron House as our exclusive restaurant partner. We cannot wait to work with them and support a fellow Norwich Lanes venue. The opportunity to extend the theatre experience to this wonderful local eatery is a really special addition that we are delighted to be able to offer to our audiences.”

Jeremy King owner of The Iron House said, “It’s a privilege to work closely with such a well-respected venue known for its varied and eclectic repertoire. We look forward to being part of the experience enjoyed by the theatre’s audiences.”
