There is an award-winning youth drama programme where children can perfect their acting and singing skills. However, if you are only visiting for a short time then we recommend one of the workshops where you can have a lesson in whatever you fancy, whether it be drama, dance or singing, you can do it here. For those with a bit less rhythm, why not learn how to become a chess champion.

A special venue

The Maltings Theatre is a beautiful building with two main rooms for shows. The main house theatre is a proscenium arch theatre with stalls, boxes and a circle, seating 311 people. This room often sells out for a performance.

There is a bar inside the venue which is also very popular as it is decorated in a very eccentric manner giving the impression that you are part of an elegant performance yourself.

There is so much to see and do at The Maltings so have a look at what’s coming up soon that appeals to you and get booked up at our wonderful hotel.
