Library Theatre

  • About
    Luton Library Theatre opened in 1962 as a lecture theatre before gradually changing to a traditional entertainment venue with 256 seats and two side aisles.

    The Theatre began to build up a programme of amateur and professional drama, film, music of all types and children's events. In fact a pretty long list of events that covers almost every taste!

    All of this continued through the sixties, seventies and eighties. During the nineties the seating was changed to a more modern style and colour with a centre isle with a slight rake. This meant the amount of seating had to be reduced to the current capacity of 238.
    In the late nineties and early noughties, there were more changes both fabric and technical makeup of the Theatre. This brings us up to 2009, when the Library itself closed for a major refurbishment. Some improvements were made to the front of house and bar areas of the theatre, plus the introduction of a new cafe.

    Technical improvements continue all the time and with our programme growing each season, we aim to be here for a lot longer!

    Venue Hire
    Luton Library Theatre with its 238 seated capacity auditorium and Bar Area is an ideal space to hire for corporate presentations and community productions. See Venue Hire for more information.
