Tea and Tours


Join us for a special backstage tour, taking in the stories of our historic building and a look behind-the-scenes, guided by one of our expert team.

Discover the 200+ years of rich history within the walls of the theatre. Built as a Wesleyan Mission in the early 1800s, the church was – at the time of building – the largest Methodist chapel in the world. Now grade II* listed, the theatre is jam-packed with fascinating history and notable names.

During your tour you’ll discover how the building was converted into a theatre in the early 1990s, how the technicians make our shows look and sound great, where our performers get ready to entertain you and so much more!

After your tour, you'll polish off your visit with some delicious refreshments served in our Courtyard Café-Bar: 

On Sat 23 October you'll be treated to some FRIGHTFULLY good Halloween themed snacks to get you in the spooky spirit.

On Sat 6 November you can warm up with some tasty Bonfire Night themed treats.

On Sat 11 December think all things Christmas - mince pies guaranteed!
