squire performing arts centre

Welcome to the Squire Performing Arts Centre

We are a highly flexible, multi-use performance space in the heart of Nottingham city centre, for use in all areas of performing arts, including dance, music and theatre. We are a unique venue with two distinct performance spaces – the main house is a 260 raked seated theatre, and our Weston Studio has retractable seating for 74.

Since opening in Spring 2017, we have been used for plays, dance recitals, music performances, and presentations. With full technical facilities, backstage amenities and bar & foyer area, the Squire Performing Arts Centre truly is an amazing theatre.

We work with groups from Nottingham to showcase their work, and we are always looking for new and established production companies and promoters to perform at our theatre. If you are part of a local or touring theatre company and would like more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

“We thoroughly enjoyed using the venue. We had comments from performers and audience members on how lovely the venue was for the event.”

“Several of us had seen shows at the new theatre and were amazed and delighted at the marvellous facilities available to both cast and audience, and how much easier and quieter to access it is than the controlled mayhem of the city centre on a Friday or Saturday evening. The school and the parent association that operate the space have been most accommodating and are eager to see quality performances feature regularly there”.
