Alnwick Playhouse has played a major role in the life of the town since 1925, and has been a vibrant arts centre since 1990. Every day, we welcome hundreds of people from the local area through the front doors. Their destination is the common denominator, and our vision is for Alnwick Playhouse to continue to grow

Redevelopment Project

The purpose of the refurbishment is to provide an improved Arts and Community facility for the 60,000 plus visitors who currently enjoy the facilities by re-modelling the interior, providing a new restaurant and café, a new lift facility with back stage improvements and a new studio theatre space
