Shanklin Theatre in Shanklin

Shanklin Theatre, Shanklin

Shanklin Theatre was formerly known as The Institute and opened in 1879. In 1884 new rooms were added, the Reading Room and Amusement Room. Visitors were charged 1d to use the Reading Room and this was housed in the lower section of the building to the right of the main front facade. The Amusement Room had two billiard tables and was managed by the Shanklin Chess Club.

Offering a full professional programme of music, theatre, comedy and dance together with an arts related education and training programme, community group performances, exhibitions and gigs, we plan to become the hub of creative activity for the Shanklin area.
