The New Theatre is now ready to host bigger and more impressive shows as the stage has increased both in size and height.

The dressing rooms have been altered, providing more modern up to date facilities. The re-positioning of the loading bay for the touring trucks provides direct access for the large scenery installations onto the stage. The theatre has now cemented its reputation as one of the best touring theatres in the UK.

The new entrance is at pavement level which ensures it is accessible for all, along with the café/bar which is located at the entrance to the theatre. Additional seating has been created and this combined with ease of access to food and drinks has greatly improved the theatre experience and offer to the public.
