Grimsby Auditorium

Theatre Design

Designed to be a flexible venue, Grimsby Auditorium features retractable raked seating, which transforms the theatre into a sports hall and arena-style venue. The theatre’s design allows for varying seating formations, which can extend the seated 1,200 capacity to 2,000 standing patrons.

The venue is most commonly used as a proscenium style theatre. Its apron is 22 metres wide and 2.5 metres deep. Extensions can also be used to extend the stage for catwalk fashion shows or a thrust style stage.

Seating at the Auditorium consists of a stalls section, dress circle, left balcony, right balcony and rear balcony. Patrons can choose their own seats when purchasing tickets.

Theatre Amenities and Facilities

Grimsby Auditorium features a public bar, confectionary kiosk and coffee shop. The bar is open for interval, pre- and post-show drinks, but can get quite busy.


The theatre is accessible to patrons with limited mobility with 12 wheelchair spaces and wide doors. Wheelchair spaces are located at ground level and in the front row of the circles or the back row of the stalls. Through the foyer, level access is available into the Auditorium, making it easy for patrons with limited mobility to enter the theatre and enjoy the show.

All theatre levels feature lift access. A front of house lift offers access to the theatre’s balcony seating and the main bar.
