The SpArC Theatre

Providing high quality, accessible arts opportunities for people living in Bishops Castle and the wider South Shropshire area.

Welcome to our theatre page

We took on the running of the Theatre programme at SpArC in 2013 and it has become a respected venue and community asset. We run a high quality diverse programme of live theatre and music, feature films and documentaries , live screenings from the The Royal Opera House, West End Theatre, Workshops and an Art Gallery.

The theatre collaborates with community groups and local events and keeps accessibility for all at its heart.

We have a fantastic group of volunteer, Front of House Stewards, and Seating and Staging crew. Get in touch if you would like to get involved.

There is also an annual Friends of SpArC Theatre subscription to support us.

The maximum capacity is 140 seats and we average 1-2 show per week. The website has full programme details and online booking facilities. You may also book your seats in person or by phone at the box office in the Leisure Centre or at Enterprise House.
