What’s ON AT the Theatre

Fancy a night out at the Theatre whilst on your holiday? We have detailed the local theatres.

The Stephen Joseph theatre Scarborough

Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough

The Stephen Joseph Theatre is actually two theatres – The Round (404 seats completely surrounding a central stage) and The McCarthy (165 seats in a steep bank facing an end stage). There is also an excellent restaurant, bar and wine bar, meeting room and bookshop in the complex which was converted from an art deco cinema in 1996. Sir Alan Ayckbourn is the artistic director and his own plays are premiered here. The theatre also has a national reputation for its work in presenting new works by others.

What Our Guests Say

Perfect. Pickering was chosen as an equidistant base for the coast, York and Harrogate and really could not have been better. Pickering is great with lots of amenities.  We stayed in the Farmhouse and everything was spot on. The place was clean and we had a bit of cake and cheese to welcome us. The place exudes quality from the kitchen utensils, fixtures and fittings through to the bedding and towels. The staff were great and the whole set up was just perfect. Thanks to all.
