Bacon Theatre, Cheltenham
The 566-seat Bacon Theatre plays host to the best in professional touring theatre, live music, dance, film and celebrity speakers as well as an extensive range of productions by local talented youth and community groups and charities.

The theatre, completed in 1991, owes its name to Mr Christopher Bacon, headmaster of Cheltenham's Dean Close School from 1979-1998, who fundraised tirelessly to build his dream.

The theatre boasts excellent sightlines and state-of-the-art facilities, while the more intimate Prince Michael Hall, opened in 1997, is a vibrantly designed 120-seat recital venue, hosting smaller scale musical events throughout the year.

Meanwhile, the beautiful Greek-style Tuckwell Amphitheatre, which is nestled in a secluded corner of Dean Close School, can accommodate 300 people for the school's lively Open-air Theatre Festival events at the end of July.
