Chelmsford City Theatres

*Chelmsford City Council has today (Tuesday 17 March 2020) taken the decision to immediately close Chelmsford City Theatres until further notice. We are doing this to protect our residents following advice to the public to avoid theatres.

Our staff will be contacting everyone who has a ticket for a forthcoming show to organise a refund. We would love it if you might consider a credit for a future show, but we completely understand if you would simply prefer to have your money back; it is up to you*



The Civic is a 505 seat theatre which offers a wide range of large scale professional, touring and amateur performances throughout the year, from classical drama and dance to eclectic music and of course, all those all time family favourites. The Cramphorn Studio is an intimate space, seating up to 166 and offers a range of smaller scale professional touring theatre, live music and lunchtime concerts. The space doubles up as the Chelmsford Picture House screening an innovative mix of art house, world, cult classics and mainstream film screenings.
