Welcome to your theatre


The Beating Heart of York's Cultural life

We’ve been here since 1744, welcoming and entertaining residents and visitors from far and wide. Our beautiful listed building offers accessible facilities and a friendly welcome to all. We’re a hub for many of the city’s major cultural events and festivals, with a year-round packed programme of live shows from big productions to fringe theatre, dance, opera, musicals and a world-renowned traditional family pantomime. Come inside and see it live.
