Forthcoming Events at The Layard Theatre

The Layard is a small to mid- scale receiving house. We schedule a limited season of professional events and workshops throughout the year, mixing contemporary theatre and new works with adaptations of classics, and other performance genres such as dance and music events.

Our professional season sits alongside our school productions which feature drama and musicals with innovative scenography, choreography, musicianship and performance, with pupils involved both on and off stage across the range of arts disciplines.
