Thorington Theatre


We have just booked our tickets for this glorious new outdoor wooden theatre nestled in Suffolk woodlands just outside Southwold. Seating approx. 350 people tickets have just gone on sale for this summer. From Mr Stink to Macbeth, Treasure Island to The Great Gatsby there's a production for everyone.

This wooden gem has been crafted using sustainably coppiced wood from the surrounding forests. The theatre has been constructed in the site of a bomb crater from WWII, which left a natural dip for the amphitheater. Their bar serves local wines, beers and juices plus delicious Suffolk-made ice creams. Pack your own picnic. Well behaved dogs on leads are also very welcome.

It is a short drive from Southwold if you are planning a seaside day trip (or train to Darsham) or if you fancy an over-nighter book up one of the newly built wonderful wooden Igluhuts or Lake Lodge at Blyth Rise Stays.
