Originally built as a Congregational Chapel in 1844, the story of the Headgate Theatre began 23 years ago when a group of local people set up the Theatre Arts Action Trust to try and find a permanent home for amateur theatre.

The Headgate Theatre is now regarded by some as an architectural gem, and an attraction in its own right. The auditorium seats 87 people and is an intimate space that makes members of audience feel as though they are part of the set. The original altar area forms a stunning backdrop for the stage, whilst six of the chapel’s listed pillars are utilised in the outer walls. Upstairs is a bar and a lounge area, plus the Hervey Benham Rehearsal Studio, either of which can be hired out separately or used as breakout space for the main theatre.
