Live Theatre in Castle Park, Colchester

Welcome to Castle Park Theatre

After two successful shows around the Castle Bailey, this is the inaugural season of theatre in the park in our special new home. As in previous years, we continue to celebrate Colchester’s cultural and historic past as well as showcase those professional creatives who have made their home here.

As with any project such as this, there are a lot of people to thank including our project partners, corporate sponsors and our wonderful audiences. Please help us get this exciting new theatre space off to a cracking start by telling your friends and family about us, and of course buying a ticket or two.

Gates open an hour and a half before each performance for audiences to enjoy the space.

A purpose built new bar will be open for food and drink before each show and during the interval. Audience members are allowed picnics in the space and are advised to also bring chairs, a warm coat and blankets.

Performances will only be cancelled in extreme weather conditions.
