About the Community Theatre

The theatre is located within Belper School adjacent to Belper Leisure Centre on John O’Gaunts Way, DE56 0DA.  The stage features a traditional proscenium arch, full theatre lighting and sound systems.  The theatre has tiered seating for up to 240 audience members.  It is very popular with local musical theatre groups and dance schools and societies.  There is full disabled access.  There is ample car parking shared with Belper Leisure Centre and there are additional parking spaces to the rear of the leisure centre.  For more information about booking the community theatre, click here.


The school has a long history of Community Theatre.

In 2011 the school invested in an extension to and major refurbishment of the theatre facilities. This would not have been possible without a generous donation from the estate of a local business man Audley Bowdler Williamson, founder of Deb Ltd.

“AB” was one of the original members of Belper Players. He had a lifelong interest in encouraging and developing performing arts in the town. He died in 2004 aged 88.
