Welcome – the Marine Theatre is right on the seafront in beautiful Lyme Regis. The location – with wide views of the sea and Lyme bay – is very important to the Marine’s identity, which makes it appealing to both the public and performers.
While it’s called a theatre, the offering is much broader: there’s a vibrant programme of entertainment including bands, films, comedians, plays, and community-led events.
The theatre has become recognised regionally as a vital arts centre, distinguished from others through eclectic programming. It’s a destination for performers with a national reputation. It also acts as an umbrella for events featuring local figures from the arts, as cultural practice in the community is celebrated.
We are also available to hire as a wedding venue and other events.
The theatre office is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. The Marine Theatre Bar opens an hour before each show.
You can buy tickets for our shows at anytime online (go to our What’s On page), or from the Box Office, which is in the Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre open 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday (summer season).
