Rotherham Civic Theatre

Venue Type



Rotherham Civic Theatre opened to the public on 7th March 1960. The building as it stands today had a vibrant history long before the curtain was raised on that first night. Many of you will know that the building is a converted church and was purchased by the Council prior to being converted into a theatre in 1960.

We estimate that during 50 years the theatre has had approximately 4 million visitors, hosted thousands of performances and served over 750,000 cups of tea and coffee. Staff, customers and performers have come and gone over the last 50 years but, for those of you who have visited and worked at the Civic, I’m sure the theatre has provided many lasting memories. The fabric of the building seems to somehow retain all the fun, laughter and tears of all those visitors who have spent memorable evenings in this unique place.

We are thrilled to announce that Lauren Housley, ‘Girl From The North’, born and bred in Rotherham, is returning to the Civic Theatre in April 2019. Back in 2015, Lauren and her long-time writing partner and established musician, Thomas Dibb, celebrated the eagerly-awaited release of their debut album, Sweet Surrender, with the people who had supported them since the beginning of their careers as singers, musicians and songwriters; their hometown fans. Now, after travelling the world playing their music in the US, Canada and Europe, being championed by BBC Radio 2 and last year being invited to play a headlining slot at the Bluesfest at The O2 Arena in London, they are proud to bring a collection of new songs with a new sound back to their roots. The place where it all began. Lauren and Tom will be joined by their band of some of the most accomplished musicians in the UK. Soulful and emotionally connected, the young band have an on-stage chemistry that’s hard to come by these days.
