Your Visit

We are one of South Tyneside’s leading amateur theatre groups producing a variety of senior and junior productions each year.


From pantomime to drama, we operate from the beautiful Pier Pavillion close to the South Shields seafront. Our volunteers work tirelessly to produce a range of entertainment throughout the year. The Pier Pavillion is easy to get to, has ample onsite parking, and a fully licensed bar and kiosk for patrons to relax and unwind in before and after performances.

Getting Here


Visiting the Pier Pavillion is easy. With regular Metro services, a short walk to the Bus Interchange and even regular ferry trips from North to South Shields, we’re ideally located in the heart of the town.
