The Shedley Theatre

The iconic Shedley Theatre has a capacity of 387 and boasts a large stage with enormous depth. An orchestra pit not visible from the house sits below stage level and can accommodate a 12 piece band. The design of the stage has earned the reputation for giving its audience the illusion of being part of the production.

The Shedley Theatre has hosted many high profile events and performers in recent years as well as resident amateur theatre groups. The theatre is also available for hire and more information can be found in the Shedley Theatre Facility Guide.
