Description

 20th Century Theatre

 

The 20th Century Theatre is a liberated landmark that offers an unparalleled event location. This fascinating and visually stunning space provides a refreshing change and the opportunity to create a unique environment for an unforgettable experience.

 
 
“The theatre’s wonderful character makes it the perfect backdrop in which to stage an event with panache. You name it, the theatre has done it – from haute couture shows for dogs (yes, really) to perfume launches with Cirque du Soleil acrobats hanging from the ceiling, to publishing parties for Jamie Oliver and textile exhibitions by local resident Darcey Bussell.” 
 
 
With its white walls, wooden floor and high atrium ceiling, the 20th Century Theatre is a blank canvas to be transformed into the perfect setting for your event.
