The Towngate Main Auditorium follows the traditional horseshoe design seen in many theatres built during the Georgian period.However, as the theatre was built in the late 1980’s many modern innovative features have been incorporated into the design of this building.The main auditorium is a flexible space with audience seating for 548 people. We can remove and store the entire 232 stall seats under the main stage, creating a massive 378 square metre flat floor area for a standing audience of over 750 people. :
