Whether yours is a big-hearted, budget romcom or an all singing all dancing production, we’d be delighted to host your wedding day.

Every wedding at The Theatre is a little different. We are only able to hold a small number of weddings per year around our thriving arts programme, so yours will be one of only a select few held here at our Cotswolds wedding venue. This means you get a truly personal experience, with our can-do team able to pull out all the stops for your unique day.

Chipping Norton is on the edge of the Cotswolds on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border, conveniently located for Banbury, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and northern Cotswold towns.

“We already knew the Theatre was a very special place, but we had not imagined how magical the transformation would be for our wedding day. The team were open to all of our ideas & helped created a truly unforgettable day. Our friends and family were blown away, as were we!”

– Alison & Matthew

A Quirky Cotswolds Wedding Venue

We are a small, much-loved Cotswold venue, nestled in a pretty residential street. Our auditorium, an 1870s former Salvation Army citadel, provides an intimate yet grand setting for your day. Bare Cotswold stone walls, gallery seating and pillars all underneath the vaulted ceiling and theatre lights – there’s no other space quite like it.

This is a space that transforms itself from show to show, so we are able set the scene for a day as unique as you are.

Our venue is customisable and flexible to your vision. Seating, curtains, lighting, flowers, music - we can work with you to create the backdrop you’ve been dreaming of, or advise you on what we know works. Unlike many venues, we aren’t precious about what you can and can’t do – if we can make it work, we will!

Contact us or download our brochure for more details.

“Our guests absolutely loved the theatre and we’ve heard from so many people how special and unique it was. Having the ceremony on the stage meant that everyone could see us clearly and it felt very intimate despite us having 200 guests.”

- Katy & Jake

“Our wedding was as perfect as we could imagine. The staff were incredible and made us feel so special. The preparation and the day went so smoothly and made it all so easy for us. We had all the information we needed as well as sharing our ideas and have the theatre make them into reality. We couldn’t have wished for more!”

– Sarah & Laurence
