#About the Church Theatre

The Church Theatre is a venue rich with historic atmosphere, gothic beauty and classic charm, complete with breath-taking stained-glass windows, original organ pipes and stunning arches and beams.

Originally built in 1877 as a Wesleyan Methodist Church, now deconsecrated, The Church is completely versatile as a space for parties, cabarets, cocktail functions, trade-shows and presentations, lectures, workshops, dinners and balls.

The Church has that hint of 'something different' you are looking for, with the kind of flexibility that means our staff are able to transform the room from theatre style to elegant reception banquet in just a matter of hours.
