Set in the heart of the Island the theatre is easily accessible by bus or car. It is only a short walk from the Islands capital town Newport.

Our in-house Technical and Box Office team can provide support for your event.

The shape of the Theatre is square (23m x 23.5 x 9m average height), with seating and stage placed on the diagonal axis. It is linked to the Music Suite. We have a Green Room area. There are small practice rooms. These can double as dressing rooms for small groups or soloists / single performers. A larger classroom can double as a dressing room for large groups / chorus, or band room. There is a quick-change room for one person, approximately 10m from stage right.

Serving the theatre and adjacent to it, is a bar. This is shared with Medina Leisure Centre. Situated in this area is the main foyer and public entrance. There are backstage entrances to the scene dock and a stage door entrance for performers.

The Theatre can also arrange for tickets to be printed and events publicised. Publicity normally takes the form of press advertising and is charged for at cost. Prices for these are available on request.

Capacity: 430 (seated).

Competitive rates available.
