Theatre for all

Our year-round programme of community events for adults includes everything from weekly classes to talks and tours. Whether you are looking to build your confidence, gain new skills or to discover more about the Theatre and productions we hope you’ll find something of interest to you. 

We aim to provide life-changing experiences for people who might otherwise miss out, and to enrich people’s lives with the joy of creative expression and socialising.

It's nice to be more fun and extrovert, when life has made us "grown-up" over the years!


I've enjoyed getting theatre back in to my life after many years away


Gives me the chance to have fun and enjoy the company of like-minded people

Theatre Tours

Join us on one of our 60-minute tours exploring the radical architecture and gravity-defying engineering of this ground-breaking building.

Meet in the Festival Theatre foyer before splitting into smaller groups to discover the restored auditorium and newly upgraded backstage areas. Our Renewed Theatre is fully accessible. Please let us know when booking if you or anyone in your group has any particular requirements.

In addition to our public tours, we offer a bespoke tour option for School and Community groups of 10 or more. To discuss a bespoke tour for your group, please email


We offer a variety of heritage activities that enable people to engage with our building and history in different ways. Our vibrant heritage work depends on the continued support of valued volunteers, and offers opportunities to gain skills, meet new people and develop confidence.

We are always keen to expand our volunteering pool and would love to hear from individuals of all abilities and backgrounds who are interested in the Theatre and its history.
