Welcome to the Merlin Theatre
Welcome to the Merlin, a professional community theatre and registered charity bringing you the very best in performing arts.
Here are sparky, innovative shows to brighten your summer nights both indoors and in our open air amphitheatre under the stars; lots of National Theatre Live screenings; and we are now excited to add the Royal Shakespeare Company to our screening programme.
There really is something for everyone: music, children’s shows, film, drama, dance … book your tickets now!
The Merlin, in partnership with Tri.art Theatre School offers a wide range of weekly performance based activities including street dance, theatre, dance classes, plus holiday workshops for children and young people ages 6 up. We also give the opportunity for schools and groups to take part in exciting workshops from visiting professional companies and artists.
The Merlin offers a variety of adult workshops from our ever popular weekly ‘Stitch n Bitch’ group, to classes in Ballet, Tap or Dance Yourself Fit with Tri.art Dance Academy. Actor and Director Mark McGann holds Screen and Acting Master classes on a regular basis.
