Beverley East Riding Theatre

East Riding Theatre Ltd, 10 Lord Roberts Road, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 9BE

Beverley's own live theatre - come and explore, and even take part on stage!

East Riding Theatre is a vibrant, professional theatre located in a converted Baptist chapel in Beverley. Founded by actor and Beverley resident Vincent Regan and achieved through a huge community effort, the theatre opened its doors for the first time in December 2014. It has since delivered an eclectic programme of quality theatre, music and entertainment to the people of HU17 and beyond.

For HODs in 2022, the theatre opens its door (free of charge) to members of the public to see this amazing building and visit a real life working theatre. There will be a chance for you to stand on the stage, and practise your favourite speech, poem, or text that you want to try out – with a microphone, with an audience of other visitors, and find out if this is for you, and if you are the next Olivier Award winner. Not for everyone, but a unique opportunity. Afterwards, relax in the wonderful Theatre café (licensed). For more details see thewebsite.

You will also enjoy ERT’s light-hearted outdoor walking trail around. Called the Time Traveller’s Theatre Trail it poses such questions as ‘Ever wondered where the first theatre was in Beverley? Or what popular entertainment looked like in the Middle Ages?

From the infamous wife sale in Saturday Market to the childhood home of feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft, Beverley’s theatrical history is full of surprises!
