Playhouse foyer to receive £62,000 refurbishment

Thu 17 Jan 2019

In the summer of 2016, the Trustees of Sleaford Little Theatre agreed to undertake the long overdue refurbishment of the Foyer and bar area in the Playhouse on Westgate in Sleaford.

Welcome to The Playhouse, Sleaford, Lincolnshire.

Built in 1825 the theatre was built in 1825 and following varied success closed in 1856 and was 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 Georgian theatres with a small, rectangular auditorium in Britain, we invite you to explore its history and see what's on offer.
