The Theatre

The Theatre


The Theatre is a stunning 214 seat auditorium set within a former Salvation Army Citadel in Chipping Norton. We show a huge range of arts and entertainment including theatre, music, comedy, dance and an independent arthouse film programme. Despite it's size, The Theatre is home to some of the country's leading comedians, touring theatre companies and bands, as well as presenting several shows a year that we create inhouse and a nationally famous traditional pantomime. Our film programme is presented on a state-of-the-art digital projection system with surround sound. 

Please note that only the stalls have flat floor access - balcony seating can only be accessed via a staircase.

There are also free car parking spaces in the main town square (OX7 5NQ), which have time restrictions throughout the day until 6pm. Please try and avoid parking on Spring Street itself where possible, as this is a small residential street. 

We strongly request that Patrons do not park directly outside The Theatre doors, as this can obstruct the street for residents and emergency vehicles.
