Where do we perform?

The Rondo

The Rondo in Larkhall, Bath is an intimate 105 seat theatre which has a unique and friendly atmosphere. Capable of staging both professional and non-professional productions, it has become an important venue in this vibrant city, hosting a range of shows and playing a central role in the annual Bath Fringe Festival. It is also one of the only theatres with a bar inside the auditorium that, although it closes during the show, allows drinks to be enjoyed in your seat during performances.

Cotswold Playhouse

Bought in 1951 by The Cotswold Players and converted from a Methodist Chapel into a theatre, this venue once boasted seats obtained from The Theatre Royal in Bath. Today The Cotswold Playhouse is an impressive purpose built theatre that boasts 152 raked seats, a rehearsal space that doubles as a dance studio, a bar and lounge. See their site for full listings.
