Heritage Open Day 2024

Heritage Open Day 2024


A rare opportunity to see behind the scenes at our Grade II listed venue, which has hosted an amazing list of stars since it opened in 1965!

These theatre tours are a special chance to see behind the scenes and to find out how a play takes the stage every week, as well as to explore the architectural merit of this much-loved building. If you are feeling peckish after the tour, you can enjoy homemade food and cakes in our Riverbank Kitchen, located in an 18th Century watermill on the River Wey.

Work to remodel our public spaces to improve the accessibility and sustainability of the theatre, begins this summer. Heritage Open Day is an exciting time to find out more about the project.
