The Bacon Theatre - One of the friendliest places to be entertained in Cheltenham
The Bacon Theatre is one of the friendliest places to be entertained in Cheltenham. Set on the leafy site of Dean Close School, we play host to a full professional programme of live music, film, theatre, event cinema, dance and comedy, plus two weeks of the Open-air Theatre Festival in the idyllic amphitheatre onsite.
The impressive Bacon Theatre completed in 1991 and built to a very high standard, boasts excellent sightlines and state-of-the-art facilities.
The theatre owes its name to Mr Christopher Bacon, headmaster of Dean Close School from 1979-1998, who fundraised tirelessly to build his dream. Today the 566-seat Bacon Theatre plays host to the best in professional touring theatre, live music, dance, film and celebrity speakers as well as an extensive range of productions by local talented youth and community groups and charities.
The more intimate Prince Michael Hall, opened in 1997, is a vibrantly designed 120-seat recital venue, hosting smaller scale musical events throughout the year.
We also have the beautiful Greek style, Tuckwell Amphitheatre, which is nestled in a secluded corner of the school and can accommodate 250 for our lively Open-air Theatre Festival events.
Located in the beautifully landscaped grounds of Dean Close School, the Bacon Theatre, Prince Michael Hall and Tuckwell Amphitheatre are the ideal setting for a memorable night out. With affordable ticket prices, free on-site parking, a fully licensed bar and a friendly front of house team, we are justifiably proud of what we have to offer.
