Discover theatres

We can help you research a specific theatre, theatre type, or simply help you discover more about the history of our nation's theatres.

Our archives and theatres database provide architectural information on almost 4,000 British theatre buildings, past and present, across the UK. Many historic and contemporary images of theatres from our archive have been digitised and made available online.

If your search for a theatre is unsuccessful, if you have information to add to the database, or if you would like to reproduce an image, please contact us.

Theatres Trust offers fantastic information resources for students, people who work in the theatre industry, and anyone interested in the history of British theatres. We're pleased to support their unique library and archive.
