This award-winning arts venue, set on the River Lea, includes a modern and friendly theatre, airy café and art gallery.
A family friendly community arts hub, Hertford Theatre seats audiences of over 400 seated and 600 standing in its modern auditorium for a wide range of productions, from Christmas pantos, to youth and local amateur theatre, comedy, dance, music, entertainment and children’s shows, as well as cinema screenings (including the hugely popular National Theatre Live programme and Dementia Friendly screenings).
As well as all things theatrical, there’s a contemporary Gallery-cum-café-bar, where you can grab yourself a pre-show or interval drink or coffee and enjoy the monthly changing exhibitions scheduled by Courtyard Arts (plus the opportunity to buy pieces yourself).
There’s also a Studio, with sprung dance floor, ballet barres, changing rooms and floor to ceiling mirrors, where workshops and classes can be held – ideal if you’re looking for somewhere to run your own classes locally.
And if you’re after somewhere to host a kids’ party (or a work away day), check out the bright and airy River Room which overlooks, you guessed it… the River Lea and surrounding conservation area.
