The Queen Elizabeth Theatre is housed in a building that was constructed in 1840 as the terminal depot of the Oakham-Melton canal.
It is now a 225 seat proscenium arch space with full technical support areas and equipment. Also within the building are a drama classroom, department teaching and production support offices, a paint shop, wardrobe, male and female dressing rooms (complete with showers) and a wide variety of store rooms. The front of house area contains a box office and bar area.
The theatre was opened in 1979 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and has since seen well over a hundred and fifty productions.
