Regent Theatre Stoke-on-Trent
About the Regent Theatre
Located in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, the Regent Theatre is the city’s largest and hosts touring productions from across the UK. Originally opening in 1929 as a cinema, the theatre has hosted a variety of entertainment over the years - including concerts from Shirley Bassey and The Beatles and amateur dramatics - before becoming an Odeon Film Centre in 1989.
Following a multi-million pound city development, in 1999 the venue was reopened by Her Majesty the Queen. Restored to its original Art Deco style, the interior is designed in ornate gold, featuring a 1,600-seat auditorium and modern facilities that make it one of the country’s most prolific regional theatres.
Currently owned and operated by Ambassador Theatre Group, Regent Theatre is best known for hosting tours of West End shows including Noises Off, An Inspector Calls and Saturday Night Fever. As a large-scale venue, it is also one of Northern England's major receiving houses for Glyndebourne Touring Opera productions.
