The Seaton Delaval Arts Centre is a modern facility for the enjoyment of the ‘Arts’ in the local environment. The 162 seater community theatre opened in 2007 after months of hard work and dedication, with the building being redeveloped from an old Salvation Army hall into a high standard multi use community space. The first production took place in December 2007, Aladdin by Seaton Delaval Pantomime Society. As a registered charity and not for profit organisation, the venue is ran entirely by volunteers providing a well maintained building not only for the arts, but for the whole community to enjoy.
We have an ever growing theatre programme in place with a range of professional and amateur shows taking place including live music, comedy, pantomime, musicals and drama, allowing members of the community to see a real mix of shows and performances on their door step with great value for money. Our auditorium can hold up to 162 people with a permanent stage in place, professional lighting and sound rig and tiered seating.
We also provide opportunities for young and old to tread the boards through our Pantomime Society, producing a high standard summer show and Pantomime yearly along with those looking to help behind the scenes. and gain experience in community theatre.
Comprising of a large main hall and rear studio room, the building is also used by residents and groups in the local area for dance classes, fitness classes, theatre rehearsals, birthday parties and more. Our semi-sprung dance floor provides the perfect space for classes of this nature.We also accommodate one off hires for meetings, conferences, AGM’s and more.
