Town Hall Theatre

This impressive Victorian Gothic style theatre is situated right in Hartlepool's town centre. It's a vibrant hub of entertainment with a packed programme of both professional and amateur performances.

The 404-seater Victorian building provides excellent facilities for dance and performance and is now even licensed to hold weddings (free hall hire during July and August 2012).

Then there are large dressing rooms, a licensed bar, a "Green Room" for artists and dance studio which are available to hire. If you are interested, call 01429 523 420 for more information.
