About the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Aylesbury Waterside Theatre was officially opened by Cilla Black in October 2010, with the council first beginning plans in 2003, with a view for it to replace the Civic Theatre that sat in the same location. Located in Aylesbury’s vibrant town centre, the theatre is currently managed by the Ambassadors Theatre Group. With an exterior design inspired by the rolling Chiltern Hills that surround the town, the building is a multi-purpose venue, equipped with cutting-edge technology, that hosts large touring musicals, tribute bands, film screenings, children’s shows and a range of other events.
The modern auditorium boasts a seating capacity of 1,200 across three levels; the Stalls, Circle 1 and Circle 2. The majority of seats are in the Stalls, with the more intimate Circle 1 located directly above, underneath the larger Circle 2. All seating sections contain Slip seats that face the stage at an angle. Aylesbury Waterside Theatre particularly suits big events, such as musicals and concerts. As it is a more contemporary regional theatre, audience comfort is paramount, and all seats have good comfort and legroom, with a range of facilities available.
