The theatre is based in the centre of the town and forms part of the town hall building which dates back to 1870. The theatre was extensively renovated in the early 1990s and boasts an intimate auditorium with excellent sightlines and acoustics, which succeeds in blending historic and traditional features with a modern ambience.
Each year they show a wide ranging programme of live events covering drama, opera, ballet, music, children’s events, dance, comedy, storytelling, tribute bands and talks. Many of the UK’s top touring companies and artistes regularly visit the Borough Theatre, and probably the best known performers seen here were The Beatles back in 1963
The performing tradition runs deep in Abergavenny and the town supports many local amateur theatre and operatic companies who regularly perform at the Borough Theatre.Return
