The home of live theatre

In the heart of St Albans

National Lockdown

4th January 2021

Following the government’s decision to introduce a further national lockdown in England, The Maltings Theatre remains closed.

Along with every other theatre in the country we are in the process of reviewing our plans for this year and will announce our future programme of productions just as soon as the government gives theatres the go-ahead to re-open.

Existing ticketholders for all our productions will be contacted to advise them of necessary arrangements. Please do not contact our box office at this time – rest assured we will be in touch as soon as we can.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their ongoing support for The Maltings and OVO. Live theatre will return to excite, engage and entertain us all in 2021.

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.
