Your Visit

Welcome to Nottingham Playhouse

Welcome to Nottingham Playhouse – a sparkling jewel in the cultural crown of this vibrant city.

We are the home of bold, thrilling and world-class theatre which is made in Nottingham and as diverse as our community.

Our productions encompass timeless classics, enthralling family shows and exciting new commissions whilst visiting dance, comedy and theatre complete the bill alongside our legendary Christmas pantomime.

Nottingham Playhouse can be hired as a spectacular wedding venue or as an impressive conference venue.

All of this is housed in our 750 seat 1963 listed building and 90 seat studio theatre which sits alongside Anish Kapoor’s striking Sky Mirror on the forecourt, which is a drama in itself.

Playhouse Bar & Kitchen provides the perfect environment to eat, drink and relax day or night.
