Marlborough Theatre

Trade fair


The Marlborough Theatre works year round with LGBTQ+ practitioners, supporting and presenting performances by pioneering artists.

Its programme comprises a huge variety of theatre and performance from home-grown emerging talent to nationally acclaimed artists and companies. It specialises in the unusual and the unexpected, and seeks out work that has something to say about contemporary life.

The Marlborough Theatre is an intimate 55 seater, where it hosts most of its work. It partners regularly with The Spire, a 300 capacity disused church in East Brighton to host larger scale performance. The Malborough often locates work in unexpected spaces: disused shops, street corners, night clubs & digital spaces.

The Marlborough Pub and Theatre is a member of Live Art UK the national network of live art promoters.
