The Theatre

The Spring Theatre

Our theatre has a seated capacity of 132 or 145 or you can choose a seated and standing layout for up to 219.  

We work with our theatre hirers to make sure that you and your audience have the best experience possible. We provide full front of house staffing for every event and technical support for up to three hours before your performance, for the duration of your event and for an hour afterwards as standard.

Additional technical support or equipment or extra time in the theatre can be arranged if required.

In the past we have hosted anything from community performances to conferences to sell out rock gigs in our professional back box theatre space. Please just contact us to discuss your ideas.

We generally book the theatre between 9 – 12 months in advance and therefore recommend contacting us early to arrange theatre hires.

The costs of theatre hire vary and depend on the time of year, day of the week and length of booking. Please contact us for a full quote. We are happy to support charities by offering a discount on our standard rates. 

Full payment is required at the point of booking and is non-refundable.

Additional charges will be made for specialist technical equipment, additional support and entry into The Spring’s season brochure.
