The Kings Theatre

The Kings Theatre is a beautiful Edwardian Theatre. We host a range of professional and community productions and champion education work to introduce a new generation to the arts.

Founded 2001

  • Mission statement

    The Kings Theatre works to be at the heart of our community in Portsmouth and enrich lives through the arts.
    Our aim is to provide the community with opportunities to experience and participate in high quality theatre and arts activities. We host Drama, Music, Dance and Comedy live shows.
    Our education work focuses on offering arts participation opportunities through tours, workshops and hands on experience. We are passionate about offering young people opportunities to develop and gain experience in the performing arts, this work is cemented by regularly involving community groups, local schools and the Kings Youth Theatre.

    It takes a lot of time and money to maintain and restore the theatre, whilst protecting the features and charm of this historical building. We have a range of restoration plans outlined that we hope will allow us to build an exciting and sustainable future for the Kings!
