About the Venue

The Gordon Craig Theatre has been entertaining audiences from across the home counties since it first opened its doors in 1975. This 501 seat theatre boasts a varied programme of live entertainment, ranging from one-night variety-music shows to week-long drama productions.

The theatre has also maintained a proud tradition of presenting first rate Opera, Dance and Orchestral Concerts.

The Concert Hall has an exciting programme of Comedy and Live Music. Jimmy Carr, Jethro, Jim Davidson, Dionne Warwick and Lesley Garrett are among some of the many sell-out acts that the 1200 seat auditorium has previously played host to.

Undoubtedly, one of the major highlights of the year is the Pantomime. Comprising of some of the top names in the entertainment world and budding local performers, the Pantomime attracts record-breaking attendances year on year.

The Gordon Craig Theatre and Concert Hall certainly have something for the whole family!
