The Gateway Theatre is the heart of our community, providing access to the Arts and Entertainment for people in Seaton and across East Devon, through our Live Gigs and Classical Music seasons, Children’s Theatre, and other world class theatrical productions. We bring the London theatre here via Live Streaming from The National Theatre, RSC, the ROH and many more.   Our extensive cinema programme with our famous Picnic Nights ensures that we have something for everyone.

Support the Gateway

The Gateway Theatre Seaton has a professional stage with full lighting and sound. There are two backstage dressing rooms with a small kitchen for our performers. For our guests we have a fully stocked licensed bar and kitchen offering refreshments.  We support a wide range of community activities that take place in our large spacious auditorium, or upstairs in the Enterprise Suite, a good sized private meeting room.


Fully licensed bar in the spacious auditorium open during events selling a selection of wines, spirits and draught beer & cider. We also stock a variety of Fentimans botanically brewed beverages, and Frobishers’ tonics, soft drinks and bar snacks are also available.


The foyer is on the ground floor and easily accessed, and is where you will find our Box Office and toilet facilities, and leads you into our spacious auditorium. The doors to the auditorium are usually opened at least 30 minutes before a performance, please check our programme for more information.
