The auditorium is equipped with seating for 250 patrons, complemented by a stepped layout. This allows for superb visibility of the stage, and provides excellent sound coverage throughout. We provide 4 standard wheelchair spaces at the front of the theatre, with 4 designated carer seats. These are displayed as Row A.

Foyer Bar

Located in our Main Foyer, The Abbey Bar is a great place to meet for a pre or post show drink. The Abbey Bar is open 45 minutes prior to each performance and remains open after the final curtain on show nights.

We have a great selection of local real ale, commercial beers and wines, as well as soft drinks.
