About Us

 

Part of Uppingham School, Uppingham Theatre is one of the largest privately owned theatres in the country, seating 280 people. We also have a Studio space that comfortably seats 100 people and hosts our smaller productions. As well as the ever popular School productions, we also host touring professional shows, comedians and speakers on a weekly basis.

The Theatre is also available for external hire and we frequently open our doors to several local amateur dramatic societies and stage schools.

Uppingham Theatre Bar

We are proud to have our own theatre bar which serves both the Main Auditorium and Williams Studio and opens 45 minutes before each performance starts. It is also open during the interval and you can order your interval drinks before the show.

Parking

 

Due to the location of the Theatre, unfortunately we do not have a large car park and as such parking for the Theatre is on Stockerston Road. But please be aware of our residential neighbours and avoid permit holder spaces or parking on very narrow streets. If spaces are limited, there is a public car park in the town centre, on North Street East.
