The Royal Court Theatre, Bacup is Rossendale's only remaining Theatre proper. Opened in 1893, it was built as a Theatre providing the area with live music and variety acts and is still doing this today.The Theatre is run and owned by Bacup Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society. Community Theatre is a brand that is used by many today, The Royal Court Theatre has been providing this for a 120 years!


With 488 seats, a traditional sprung raked stage plus raked seats and an orchestral pit, the Theatre stages 9 productions a year as well as a
 plethora of professional touring shows and 2014 is going to be our busiest year yet.The Theatre receives no funding from any other body apart from the sale of tickets, so every penny really does matter here. By booking tickets you are helping to keep our beloved Theatre open.
