About The Borough Theatre....
The Borough Theatre is a lively 338 seat venue situated right in the centre of the historic market town of Abergavenny, the traditional Gateway to Wales.
Each year the Borough Theatre attracts audiences to a range of live entertainment events for all ages. From performances for children and families, top names in stand-up comedy, opera and ballet, world music, drama and storytelling. There really is something for everyone!
With its unique ambience the theatre is part of the town hall building and dates back to 1870. The theatre was extensively renovated in the early 1990s and boasts an intimate auditorium with excellent sightlines and acoustics, which succeeds in blending historic and traditional features with a modern ambience.
Plans are currently being developed for significant improvements to our front of house and backstage areas. Before long the Borough Theatre will be able to offer not only the very best in live entertainment for audiences, but also the very best facilities and levels of comfort when visiting.
The performing tradition runs deep in Abergavenny and the town supports many local amateur theatre and operatic companies who regularly perform at the Borough Theatre.
Now operating as a company limited by guarantee with its own board of trustees, the success that the Borough Theatre has enjoyed in its history has been as a result of the partnership established between Monmouthshire County Council, who own the building, and the theatre’s voluntary management committee which was recently renamed Acting4theBorough (A4B).
Although much has already been achieved, the ever growing demand for use of the theatre from both the professional and community sectors only goes to demonstrate that much work lies ahead in the quest to extend and develop the activities and facilities which have made the Borough Theatre Monmouthshire’s “Jewel in the Crown”.
