The theatre provides the ideal setting for a beautiful wedding reception in a relaxed environment where both you and your guests will be able to enjoy your special day.

Upstairs, the fully licensed Theatre Bar offers an extensive selection of wine, local beers and real ale and a full cocktail menu; providing a space for guests to drink, chat, and enjoy the party in the auditorium below. There is also an outside bar balcony with stunning views overlooking the sea and coastline for your exclusive use.
