Barbican Theatre is an intimate and vibrant 140-seat theatre at the heart of the historic Barbican in Plymouth.
Together with the B-Bar, Barbican Theatre offers a diverse programme of contemporary theatre and dance, laugh-out-loud comedy, and live music from across the world. From hilarious Christmas performances for the whole family, to chilled out soul and jazz music in the relaxed atmosphere of the B-Bar, this vibrant little venue really does have something for everyone.
As well as putting on high quality performances for the public to enjoy, Barbican Theatre is also a regional centre of excellence for young, new and emerging theatre and dance artists. Their Performance Training programme enables 5-25s to learn dance and theatre skills, whilst residency workshops give practitioners the opportunity to learn from nationally touring artists.
But there’s more to this waterside theatre than meets the eye. For 34 years, they have also been empowering schools and local communities through the arts, raising awareness of important social issues. Through this unique way of working, they aim to promote a fairer, more equal city where everyone is valued and respected.
