The Kenneth More Theatre

The Kenneth More Theatre was officially opened on 3 January 1975. Since the doors opened the Theatre has prided itself on serving the local community by offering a variety of professional and amateur productions. Its programme is diverse, and throughout the majority of the year, each week sees a different production being staged.

It is renowned within the Borough for its annual pantomime, a festive treat for families which generally runs from mid-December to mid-January.
