Bath's fantastic fringe theatre dedicated to the daring
Home to local enthusiasts, acclaimed performers and more; The Rondo Theatre is a fantastic, fully-accessible fringe theatre driven by a passion for local community and performing arts.
Unique, intimate and quaint; this iconic venue plays host to a variety of acts, whether that be brand-new theatre companies presenting their first theatrical offerings, or primed, returning collectives armed with much acclaim. It’s one of the nation’s busiest small theatres, with over 80 companies visiting every year! It’s a remarkable venue without the pretention – a perfect combination.
Situated Larkhall’s accessible shopping centre, The Rondo Theatre offers an intimate performative experience; with 105 seats positioned close to the stage, a quality programme of events from comedy to period drama to music, and a fully-stocked bar (yep – at The Rondo Theatre you can drink throughout the show!)
Founded in 1989 by The Rondo Trust (Registered Charity), the Theatre has become a destination of local performing arts talent and has since received lottery grants to establish its presence in the theatrical arts scene further. It’s a project driven by volunteers and fuelled my performative dedication!
From the City Centre, the venue is just a short drive away, situated in Larkhall. More information on travel can be found here.
