What you may ask is the connection between the theatre and Nelsons Colum, and no its not this month’s quiz question. The answer is that it occupies what was originally a Union Chapel that was built in 1860 by Sir Samuel Morton Peto, whose other building works included the Reform Club and Nelson’s Column. When the building fell into disuse after the congregation joined the United Reform Church it was empty for a while.
The theatre was opened in July 1968 and has grown consistently since. Now it has two auditoriums with a wide variety of productions ensuring there is something for everyone.
