Layard Theatre

  • About
    The Layard Theatre opened in 1998, funded from the sale of the Assyrian Frieze, which was brought to Canford by Sir Henry Layard.
    Attractively sited on the campus of Canford School, in 300 acres of parkland on the banks of the River Stour, the theatre offers the pleasure of the performing arts in a beautiful and historic setting. It is an intimate, flexible and atmospheric building, which has won wide acclaim.

    In addition to housing the school's drama department and student productions, this fully-equipped, modern theatre provides a venue for a wide range of professional entertainment, including top quality theatre and music. These productions are open to the public and are publicised in our seasonal programme. Parking for the theatre is free.
