Find out all about a theatre which has been serving the community for more than 50 years on the next episode of the St Albans Podcast.

The podcast focuses on everything St Albans, is hosted by community broadcaster Danny Smith, and was launched in conjunction with the Herts Ad earlier this year.

Martin Goodman and Mark Coltman from the Abbey Theatre appear on the next instalment to talk about how the performing space started, where it is now, and what the future has in store.

Danny has also interviewed the podcast's mental health correspondent Stacey Turner on her It's OK To Say campaign.

She also speaks about her visit to St Albans City FC and the BBC One programme Royal Team Talk, where Prince William discusses men's mental health with famous footballers.
