The Theatre was originally built in 1920 as the 3000 seat Victory Theatre for the presentation of films. Following the opening of the Palais Theatre in the mid 1920's the theatre was closed for extensive renovations and the seating capacity reduced to 2550. It was re-opened in 1928 and the current foyers, grand staircase, barrel vaulting and auditorium date from that renovation. The National Theatre offers a hiring package which incorporates a staffing, staging and lighting component. The National Theatre will assist you in every way to ensure that your season is a great success.
The design of the theatre provides excellent sightlines for all 783 seats and suits all styles of production from full-scale musicals, dance and opera to intimate one person performances. Major dance events, concerts, dramatic productions and festivals are held in the venue, which still maintains its dual function as a cinema.
