The Kenton Theatre is the fourth-oldest working theatre in the country. It is a Regency gem, set in the heart of Henley-on-Thames, with a warm, friendly and cosy intimacy that makes you want to come back. Our policy is to provide a varied programme to suit all tastes, featuring professional touring companies as well as local amateur societies and dance groups.

In 2008 we hosted over 65 productions ranging from Pam Ayres to pantomime, from alternative comedy to the Young Shakespeare Company, and from Old Tyme Music Hall to Joe Brown.

Local amateur companies and children's shows provide an opportunity for local budding actors and actresses to develop their skills. Kate Winslet and Harry Stott (currently appearing as Oliver!) are just two of the many stars who trod the Kenton stage at an early age.

The 234-seat auditorium is professionally equipped and provides facilities suitable for live performances, films, lectures and conferences. The theatre is available for hire and a coffee bar and licensed bar are open for performances.

Run primarily by volunteers, the theatre aims to provide enjoyment and opportunity for all, whether as a patron, treading the boards, or working behind the scenes or front of house. Enjoy our theatre … we do.
