The Arena Theatre is one of the West Midlands longest established and most successful small-scale touring venues. Our visitors can enjoy a superbly compact, reasonably priced, state-of-the-art complex. Bright and bold in design, it embraces excellent front of house facilities and two exceptionally relaxing theatres with flexible performing spaces.The Arena Theatre seats 150 and is brilliantly deceptive – seductively drawing its audiences into a more intimate understanding of the play, surprisingly spacious for dance or ballet, funky and unpretentious for hot music. Quality programming has always been of paramount importance to the Arena Theatre and outstanding professional companies, celebrating drama, dance and music, will continue to dominate throughout any given season. The Arena also showcases work by local schools, colleges, students, amateur companies and community events.

I have been here a few times to watch dance shows. It's very clean and has lots of space. I think you get a great view of the stage no matter where you sit which is great.

The venue is small, intimate and has some alternative shows, well worth a look the staff are really welcoming and are definitely disability friendly, my son is in a show every year and the staff couldn't be more accommodating.
