Nottingham Playhouse

About

Nottingham Playhouse has been one of the UK’s leading producing theatres since its foundation in 1948. It welcomes over 110,000 customers through its doors each year and creates productions large and small, from timeless classics and enthralling family shows to adventurous new commissions, often touring work nationally and internationally.

Notable productions include The Kite Runner – West End transfer and UK Tour; a revival of Touched in 2017, starring BAFTA-winning actress Vicky McClure and Aisling Loftus; a bold new production of the sixties musical comedy Sweet Charity; and a critically acclaimed production of Alan Bennett’s The Madness of George III, starring Olivier-Award winners Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough which also streamed to hundreds of cinemas worldwide through National Theatre Live in 2018.

Visiting dance, comedy and theatre complete the bill and the Playhouse's listed 1963 building is a drama in itself, enhanced by Anish Kapoora's stunning Sky Mirror.

Nottingham Playhouse also offers a superb conference venue,  with an auditorium seating over 700 and a meeting room for up to 50. Both are fully equipped with modern facilities making it the perfect place to inject some creativity into your business.

Tickets for shows at Nottingham Playhouse are available from our Tourist Information Centre on Smithy Row, just off the Market Square, by either popping in or by calling 08444 77 56 78.
