Welcome to the home of the Abbey Theatre, a volunteer run venue which provides Nuneaton with its ONLY live public performance venue for drama, music, dance and a wide variety of other arts based events.

Managed by the Nuneaton Arts Council, a registered charity, the Abbey Theatre hosted no less than 52 different live performances in 2016, and we also began showing regular movies to augment the diversity of our programming, with 11 individual screenings during the year plus a selection of no less than 24 from very different genres in our June 2016 film festival.

Seating 250 in our comfortable auditorium, plus space for wheelchairs/carers at the front, we have increased our choice of programming in the last year or so to include professional touring acts, and even the odd celebrity. Nicholas Parsons, Honor Blackman and Jimmy Cricket have played here, as well as musical performances from Maddy Prior and StringFever.

Another successful venture from last year is our regular Funhouse Comedy night which boasts 4 different professional stand-up comedians from around the country each time.

Our licensed bar area has a selection of real ales along with wines/spirits and soft drinks and of course the traditional ice creams.

Upstairs, our two rehearsal/meeting rooms are home to several local performing societies for rehearsals, and these can also be made available during the day for commercial bookings.

Open for 11 months of the year (closing in August for repairs and improvements) there will undoubtedly be something for everyone in our packed calendar.

HEADLINING next month at our next Funhouse Comedy night on November 17th will be Nathan Caton, one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio.
Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and coveted plaudits including the Chortle Student Comic of the Year award and Broadcast Hotshot and written and starred in a pilot for Paramount Comedy (now Comedy Central) entitled The Nathan Caton Show.
Since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend of personal and political comedy.

Tickets only £10.
