Blakehay Theatre

Discover Weston-super-Mare’s best kept secret: a modern theatre masquerading as a beautiful 19th century church.

  • Theatre

The Blakehay Theatre, built originally as a Baptist church in 1850, now showcases an outstanding array of musicals, dance shows and theatre productions throughout the year.

With the Main House occupying the converted church, the Theatre Bar holding regular smaller events, and the Studio Theatre situated in the old Sunday School Rooms, the unique setting promises tantalising performances. Alternatively, visit one of the community classes for a fun hands-on session, including regular yoga, pilates and dance classes.

The Theatre Bar is open one hour before performances and for interval drinks, selling locally-sourced bottled drinks, great coffee and amazing ice creams.

The Theatre Bar doubles up as an art gallery every second Saturday displaying work by local artists.
