Our theatres

We're delighted that the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is open. The Swan Theatre and The Other Place both remain closed.

A trip to Stratford-upon-Avon isn't complete until you've visited The Other Place.

Located just down the road from the Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres, it's a great place to grab a bite to eat and watch a performance, whether in the 200-seat theatre or Susie's cafe bar. Every year we showcase new plays and writers in the theatre, alongside regular music, poetry and family events.
