WELCOME TO THE ASSEMBLY ROOMS THEATRE

 

Situated on North Bailey in the most historic part of Durham, within sight of Durham Cathedral, entering the Assembly Rooms Theatre is like stepping into a another world. Furnished in red velvet with a ceiling to rival the night sky, the Assembly Rooms is an oasis of creativity in the heart of Durham.

2.4MILLION INVESTMENT FOR THE ASSEMBLY ROOMS THEATRE

We are thrilled to announce the Durham Universities major investment in theatre.

Today, Durham University has declared plans for a £2.4 million redevelopment to renovate and restore our building, the stunning and historic Assembly Rooms Theatre.

This development will see a dramatic change to our building for the benefits of audience and visiting artists. The redevelopment will drastically improve disabled access to the 220-seat venue, restore the 150 year old theatre’s original ceiling, and refurbish its Box Office area. The renovated playhouse will also include improvements to the workshop, dressing room, and toilet facilities for future artists to enjoy.
