Nottingham Playhouse
Holiday Travel Guide

The mesmerizing mirror artwork is a highlight of the modernist façade of this site that sets the tone for the city’s dramatic arts and comedy.

The Nottingham Playhouse pushes theatrical boundaries with its eclectic range of plays, dance recitals and stand-up comedy. Set in a modernist building from the 20th century, the site is a hub of performing arts for the entire family. Bring your kids to the traditional pantomimes, where they can laugh and interact with the actors.

Arrive at the theater and marvel at the Sky Mirror, a public work by artist Anish Kapoor. It features a large upright dish made from stainless steel that reflects the sky and seems to turn the theater upside down.

Many of the productions created and finessed between these walls go on to tour. Choose from the great list of plays, dance performances and acrobatic shows that grace the stages of the 750-seat Main House and the 110-person-capacity Neville Studio. Improvised comedy and poetry sessions add variety to the lineup, while pantomimes and family-friendly shows keep kids entertained.

Enjoy lunch before a show at the Playhouse Kitchen, where food and ale are available. Head to the Playhouse Bar in the evening for sparkling wine, lagers and ciders. You can order drinks for the intermission of a show. Enjoy the view from the terrace and try the homemade cakes and pastries from the Playhouse Café.

Consider renting the playhouse as a venue for your wedding or conference. The theater was inaugurated in 1948, while the current building opened in 1963.

Book tickets by calling or arriving in person at the box office, which opens Monday through Saturday from morning until evening. Youths and students can get discounts.

The Nottingham Playhouse is on the eastern side of Playhouse Square in the heart of the municipality. Ride a bus to one of the stops on the adjacent street. While here, check out other nearby treasures such as the Albert Hall Conference Centre, the Nottingham Cathedral and the Nottingham Council House.
