The City Theatre
A 71-seat venue at the heart of the City’s cultural quarter in Fowlers Yard. In 2024 we hope to create more of a "festival" atmosphere in the Fowlers Yard area, with some local businesses open for Fringe-goers.

The venue has a proscenium stage (although the ceiling height is quite low!) with rows of fixed audience seating. It is traditionally a relaxed venue for the Fringe, and does have green room space available upstairs.

As with so many of our venues, unfortunately there is no disabled access; however it is suitable for anyone able to manage flights of a few stairs at a time.

Main theatre entrance

Performance space Proscenium stage with a modest wing and access to dressing rooms (upstairs) from stage right, and a very small wing/offstage area stage left. There is no crossover between the wings.
