After the success of the Essex Hall refurbishment and the increased quality of service we are able to provide our customers, we are even more determined to improve other aspects of the theatre. We have taken on-board the suggestions given by our customers which identify further ways to enhance the theatre.

Some of the changes we intend to undertake include, a complete refurbishment and extension of the toilet facilities, new comfortable theatre seating, modern sound, lighting equipment as well as improving the overall décor of the building.

The Princes Theatre is a Grade II listed building and as such all these improvements come at a very high costs. In view of this, and to fall in line with many other civic venues throughout the country, we will be introducing a restoration fee to our ticket prices in the new financial year. This money will be ring-fenced and used to maintain the theatre to a high standard which will help us to continue to provide shows and events for everyone in the district.


The purpose built Essex Hall is ideal for smaller events, whether it be corporate meetings, training sessions, product launches or conferences. Available for one off hires or for a weekly, monthly or seasonal basis. Community groups, members of the public and businesses locally, nationally and internationally repeatedly use these facilities for successful events.

The Choice of something as simple as a layout of the room can make all the difference when hosting a meeting or conference. We have a variety of layouts to suit your needs. Alternatively we can customise any room to your specifications.
