The People's Theatre is the leading non-professional theatre company in the North of England and one of the largest and oldest established in the country.

The People's stages up to fourteen productions a year in their 500-seat main auditorium and in their flexible studio space. The People's Theatre recently completed a £1.6 million redevelopment project which transformed the frontage, foyer and bar and allowed them to build the new Studio Theatre. The venue is now fully accessible for wheelchair and mobility restricted users.

As a genuine community theatre, the People's Theatre is able to give people from all walks of life the experience of participating in all aspects of theatre.

Every show they do is produced entirely by their members - on stage, backstage and front of house. The Theatre takes great pride in working to professional standards and many members have gone on work in the professional theatre. For enquiries on how to join the People's, please visit peoplestheatre.co.uk/get-involved.

In addition to plays, their Foyer Gallery displays a range of exhibitions by established and emerging artists and is supported by the Biscuit Factory.

The People's Theatre Box Office is currently open in the daytime only, weekdays 10.30am-1pm.

Theatre Tokens can be used to buy tickets for People's Theatre produced shows only, not one-off events or Visiting Companies.
