Theatre and Performance

Amongst Liverpool’s many theatres, the Liverpool Playhouse stages premieres by both local and international writers, while the Liverpool Empire is home to many popular touring West End productions including recently The Lion King, Wicked and Mamma Mia!

The Liverpool Everyman Theatre features a 400 seat auditorium, its redevelopment has seen this much loved and important institution reinvigorated for the 21st century and the theatre was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for best new building of the year in 2014.

If you prefer the big screen, grab your picnic blanket to watch a film under the stars at the Secret Garden Cinema or The Bombed Out Church, just two of the many outdoor cinemas popping up across the city!
