Outside the Playhouse in Weston

Weston-super-Mare Theatres

Weston has a good programme of theatre productions throughout the year including musicals, ballet and drama. Exceptional conference and events space features in beautiful Winter Gardens at Weston and the resort has two great drama theatres including The Playhouse and The Blakehay Theatre.

Winter Gardens Weston-super-Mare

The Winter Gardens on Weston's Royal Parade originally opened in 1927. It was one of the main entertainment venues of the day with the Pavilion Ballroom being the focus for elegant dances and parties. It has been well preserved over the years and was featured in the film "The Remains of the Day" starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. The venue was refurbished in the 1980s and now offers air conditioned conferencing facilities, meeting rooms, bars and lounges.

The Playhouse Theatre

The Playhouse Theatre was converted from an open-air market in 1946. It served as a 500 seater theatre until it burnt down in a fire in the 1960s when a purpose-built theatre took its place opening in 1969. It holds a variety of productions including ballet, pantomime, drama, musicals and comedy.

The Blakehay Theatre

The Blakehay Theatre is housed in what was Wadham Street Baptist Church built in 1850 - the town's first public building and first Baptist Church. It didn't escape bombing in World War II but it's shell remained and it was restored as a church which continued until 1985. It was facing demolition when Weston-super-Mare Building Trust took it on and since the town council have bought it and refurbished it as a theatre. It is now a 220 seat theatre and arts centre. It is home to The Blakehay Puppet Company who provide children's entertainment and a range of other theatre and music groups. There is a regular programme of events.
