New Theatre

New Theatre is a historic venue that has been a staple of the city’s cultural scene since its construction in 1934. Located in the heart of the city on George Street, the theatre has a seating capacity of over 1,700 people and hosts a wide variety of shows ranging from musicals to plays, ballets to operas.

Originally designed as a cinema, the venue was converted into a theater in the 1970s and has since undergone several renovations to improve its facilities and maintain its status as one of the region’s leading performing arts venues. The building’s art deco style has been preserved, and the theater’s impressive façade and grand foyer provide a warm welcome to visitors.

Over the years, New Theatre has played host to many famous performers, including legendary musicians such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. It has also hosted numerous West End productions, including Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, and Cats, as well as comedy acts, dance performances, and family-friendly shows.

In addition to its main auditorium, the theatre also has several smaller performance spaces, including the Piano Bar, which hosts live music and comedy events, and the Apollo Room, which is used for conferences and private events.

New Theatre is an iconic venue that has played a significant role in Oxford’s cultural heritage. Its impressive history, beautiful design, and world-class facilities make it an essential part of the city’s artistic landscape and a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the performing arts.
