Chesterfield Borough Council is proud to own and operate two wonderful historic venues in the town centre, the Pomegranate Theatre and the Winding Wheel Theatre.

The Pomegranate Theatre 

The Pomegranate Theatre is a delightful Victorian 590-seat proscenium arch theatre housed in a Grade II listed building.

It's the country's oldest civic theatre, with Chesterfield Borough Council continuing the proud tradition of providing a varied programme of professional touring and high-quality local amateur productions.

The main stage hosts drama, comedy, dance and musicals, and the annual pantomime.

The Winding Wheel Theatre

The Winding Wheel Theatre is housed in a Grade II listed building that was previously the Picture House Cinema, built in 1923.

It presents a varied arts and entertainment programme, including West End musicals, comedy shows, concerts, dance, opera and lectures.

The auditorium, ballroom and function room are available to hire and are suitable for a wide range of events from meetings to weddings, with catering facilities and licensed bars available.
