The largest professional theatre in Lincolnshire, Grimsby Auditorium is one of the East of England’s prime theatrical destinations. Managed by the Ambassador Theatre Group, Grimsby Auditorium’s multi-purpose nature allows it to host a variety of events including music, comedy, theatre and an annual pantomime. Thanks to its large seating capacity of 1,200 and standing capacity of 2,000, Grimsby Auditorium is capable of attracting national and international-level musicals and touring acts. West End musicals such as Starlight Express, Blood Brothers and Calendar Girls have passed through the Auditorium, in addition to comedians such as Jimmy Carr and Peter Kay. Famous rock acts like Morrissey, Kasabian and Stereophonics have also been lured to Lincolnshire to play the Auditorium. While its ability to attract high profile performers is well known, the Auditorium’s versatility means that it is regularly chosen to host smaller sports events, conferences and other events. For example, the Auditorium’s stage can be extended to transform it into a catwalk for fashion shows.
