The McMillan Theatre can be hired and used for a variety of events, performance, exhibitions, meetings, conferences, classes, and so much more.

As well as the equipment and facilities available, we can also offer the services of skilled technicians to operate lighting and sound, plus a duty manager, front of house volunteers, bar staff and security staff if needed.

Please see the individual pages for more detailed information, or feel free to contact us to see how our fantastic facilities can meet your requirements.


The McMillan Theatre has a busy artistic programme and can get booked up a long way in advance. We do recommend early booking to avoid disappointment, particularly for use of the Main Auditorium on a Friday or Saturday night. We will always do our best to find a suitable date for you, so it is worth contacting us, even if it is short notice.

Please note that we need to make sure all events held at The Theatre fit alongside our existing programme. We may ask you for a detailed outline of your event before we are able to confirm availability. It’s all part of making sure we’re prepared and can make your event as enjoyable as possible for you.

We are very happy to meet with you to discuss your event and show you around The McMillan Theatre. It’s a beautiful space and we like to show it off! It also gives you the chance to check it’s the right space for you.

For more information and to book a tour time, contact the Theatre Manager, Anthony Bruton on 01278 558020 or by email at info@mcmillantheatre.com

We have recently held a corporate event at The McMillan Theatre. Thanks to the team this couldn’t have gone any smoother, despite very last minute changes from ourselves. Anthony and all the staff reacted quickly and professionally, fantastic venue, outstanding food, but most of all amazing customer service. I wouldn’t hesitate in using the Theatre again and recommending to others.
