There’s that theatre in every region that’s more of a local institution than just a venue – and in the Isle of Wight’s case that one is the Shanklin Theatre. The theatre hosts the latest in live entertainment from every genre, and its bill includes everything from Motown evenings, cutting comedians to the latest show to dazzle the West End. If there’s a big show doing the rounds you’ll catch it at this Isle of Wight theatre, but the nice thing about its bill is that it often includes new shows too.
This is a theatre with a history, and if you like a spacious seat and all the features of a nostalgic theatre then you’ll find them at this one. Think push red seats, a warm welcome and a grand exterior that’s a local landmark. Gift vouchers can be bought in advance too, so if you want to treat someone special to an evening of live entertainment you’ll be able to let them pick closer to your visit.
The box office is open from 10am to 3pm between Monday and Friday and from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays. It’s possible to receive special rates on group bookings depending on the show, so contact the box office for information before making your booking.
