Bakewellians over a certain age are sure to remember our signature room. The venue for many a dance, the Assembly Room Theatre played a formative role in most children’s past as the venue for the town pantomime. See our What’s On guide, for details of current productions.
A purpose-built theatre with stage, proscenium arch and movable apron, the Assembly Room Theatre is a wonderful venue for live performers. We have everything you need to put on a great show and a sprung floor to dance the night away. We have the space for 168 seated theatre-style, and up to 300 standing.
