Walton on Thames

The Playhouse

The Cecil Hepworth Playhouse is a performing arts venue for hire in Walton on Thames town centre, ideal for theatre, dance, comedy and musical productions.

Facilities include a sound and lighting systems, orchestra pit, scene dock, dressing rooms, and a spacious bar area. The raked seating can be deployed for your audience, or retracted to reveal a large space for rehearsals, choirs, dance, fitness classes, quiz nights, private parties, other commercial or community events. 

There is step-free access for the audience or event attendees to the auditorium, foyer, bar and accessible WC facilities.
