The Touring Consortium is comprised of:

  • Bradford Alhambra

    Bradford Alhambra

    The Alhambra Theatre is regarded as the North’s premier touring venue and hosts the best in large scale entertainment from ballet and opera to variety and comedy, musicals, drama and Yorkshire’s biggest panto.

  • Darlington Hippodrome

    Darlington Hippodrome (formerly Darlington Civic Theatre) is currently undergoing a £12 million restoration, reopening in autumn 2017.

  • Everyman Theatre Cheltenham

    The Everyman is Gloucestershire’s theatre – and has been serving the county (and beyond) since 1891. Our main auditorium is an architectural masterpiece designed by Frank Matcham that has inspired generations of performers. The common thread throughout the many years has always been our relationship with our audience – a relationship that we treasure.

  • Grand Theatre Blackpool

    The Grand Theatre is an 1100-seat theatre designed by Frank Matcham in 1894. This amazing space is a wonder of restoration and revival, presenting a full range of every performing artform, as Blackpool’s community theatre, Lancashire’s preferred opera house and Britain’s National Theatre of Variety.

  • King’s Theatre Edinburgh

    One of two of Scotland’s major presenting venues managed by Festival City Theatres Trust (the other is the Festival Theatre), the King’s was built as a variety theatre in 1906. Over the years, it has played host to legendary performers such as Stanley Baxter, Rikki Fulton and Jimmy Logan. The 1350-seat venue continues to play a prominent role in the community, hosting the ever-popular King’s pantomime and a number of productions from local amateur societies throughout the year as well as receiving major touring productions.
