|In 1967 the Brewery sold 'The Swan', a derelict Yeovil pub, to the local Dramatic Society. For seven years members worked to transform the pub into an attractive headquarters with facilities for rehearsals and set building. Performances still had to take place elsewhere, in hired halls.
There was, however, space behind the building and, taking its courage in both hands, the society decided to build its own theatre right on the doorstep. Hours of voluntary work and reinvestment of profits into building and equipment have resulted in the Swan Theatre as we know it today.
