Theatre Closure

After 12 years at our venue on Western Road we have taken the difficult decision to close our theatre space at the end of our Spring 2024 season in July. This is not the end of our not-for-profit theatre company, but due to conflicts between the pub’s activities downstairs and a difference of interests, we’ve found it increasingly difficult to provide the ideal environment for our audiences and artists. Additionally, post-pandemic challenges have made it harder to book shows and attract sufficient audiences to sustain us as a small independent theatre venue. We extend our deepest gratitude to all the audiences, artists, and volunteers who have been part of our journey over the years. Upstairs At The Western has been a remarkable experience and we are excited to see what the future brings.
