Autumn 2020 Season

The Maltings Theatre reopens

October and November 2020

The home of live theatre

In the heart of St Albans

We’re getting ready to be

Back Soon

In line with the rest of the theatre industry, we closed the doors of The Maltings Theatre in March 2020 in response to the lockdown requirements.

However, in the light of the government’s decision in August 2020 to move to “phase 4” of its roadmap to reopen theatres, we are now busy preparing an Autumn programme.

We are very excited to be able to open our doors again and we can’t wait to welcome you back to The Maltings Theatre with our usual mix of innovative, imaginative and inspiring theatre and music.

More details will be announced soon.

What We Do


We produce a year round programme of innovative, imaginative, inspiring theatre. We focus on reimagined classics and contemporary plays up close, from OVO, our in house company, and associate companies.


Our weekly jazz club is produced by Herts Jazz, and our monthly folk nights are curated by St Albans Folk. We also present dance, opera, chamber music, songs from the shows and everything in between.


We offer a variety of dance, music and theatre classes for children. Our education programme is delivered with a range of local partners including Monkey Music, Rhythm Time and Tiny Ballerina.


The theatre is available for hire and – with its city centre location, excellent parking, well-equipped facilities and full disabled access – makes a fantastic venue for a wide range of meetings and events.
