About the Regent Theatre

Located in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, the Regent Theatre is the city’s largest theatre, housing 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 pop concerts and amateur dramatics, before becoming an Odeon Film Centre in 1989. Following a multi-million pound city development, the venue was reopened as Regent Theatre 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.

Best known for hosting UK tours, including Noises Off, An Inspector Calls and Saturday Night Fever, the Regent Theatre is a large-scale venue that regularly houses Glyndebourne Touring Opera productions. Built across two tiers, the Stalls and Circle, there are a variety of views on offer in the theatre, with rows that curve slightly around the stage. The Stalls are larger than the Circle, which features slip seats that face the stage at a stark angle. A steep rake throughout the auditorium ensures all views are good, although legroom may suffer slightly.
