Hertford Theatre - Consultation

Our consultation is now open and it’s your chance to have your say on the proposals to transform Hertford Theatre into a place that will enhance the lives of visitors and the town itself.

The proposals

Watch the video below to see and hear a little about what the theatre could look like and meet the project team. 

The centre is set to include:

  • Three bespoke cinema screens allowing screenings of newly released films
  • Increased seating in the auditorium with the introduction of a circle level
  • A new studio auditorium seating 150 people
  • A relaxing and open public plaza-style foyer
  • Uncovering the 12th century motte at the back of the theatre which people can reach directly from The Wash, via a new boardwalk, creating an exciting link between the theatre, Castle Gardens and the castle
  • An improved riverside café-bar for both theatre visitors and people enjoying the park
  • Improved access to all areas of the building so that artists can better reach the stage, backstage and the dressing rooms.
