Civic and Cramphorn Theatres in Chelmsford

Book Tickets Online


The Civic Theatre seats an audience of 504 over 2 levels – stalls and balcony. The auditorium makes the performance space a very intimate one where you can be close to the stage and immerse yourself in the performance with no restricted views from any seats. The auditorium has excellent technical and stage facilities allowing an exciting new range of artists and companies to come to Essex.

It benefits from full flying, allowing scenery and artists to appear as if by magic. There is an orchestra pit that when not required allows stalls seating level to provide the full complement of seating. The auditorium boasts comfortable seating newly refurbished in 2016, excellent sight lines, air conditioning, and the backstage facilities to make the magic of theatre a reality.

Cramphorn Theatre

The Cramphorn Studio (adjoining the Civic) is an intimate studio theatre seating up to 165.
