New Mills Art Theatre

New Mills Art Theatre

East Midlands

New Mills Art Theatre is a community space which includes an occupancy of 455 (235 stalls, 220 circle). It’s a creative hub for New Mills town and beyond.

The Art Theatre in New Mills, High Peak, Derbyshire is a venue for community use in the promotion, performance and rehearsal of theatre and arts related disciplines. It opened in 1911, to bring amateur theatre to New Mills town and Districts, and was reopened in 1921 as the Art Picture Playhouse under the architect-Albert Winstanley.

Today, the Art Theatre is run entirely by volunteers, and provides a public service at no cost to the public purse. The theatre is a locally important building with many original features, including a rare revolving stage and beautiful barrel vaulted ceiling of pressed tin plates painted by Clare Ferriby, who also decorated the interior of Manchester’s Palace Theatre. In 2019, the theatre installed gold seats gifted from Sir Andrew Lloyd Webbers London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, bringing a slice of London's west end to the High Peak.
