Welcome to The Playhouse, Sleaford, Lincolnshire.

The theatre built in 1825 closed in 1856 and converted into a school, the following years saw the building used for a series of other uses but was restored and reopened in 2000.

Built for a bookbinder, printer and comedian Joseph Smedley, who owned a string of theatres and ran a small touring theatre company, which toured these theatres in the Lincolnshire and Norfolk area.

As one of only two of Britain's Georgian theatres with a small, rectangular auditorium, we invite you to explore its history and see what's on offer.
