Royal & Derngate Theatre

Royal & Derngate is the main venue for arts and entertainment in Northamptonshire. Our vision is to be a national, regional and local centre for creativity and entertainment which inspires audiences and artists in Northamptonshire through live performance, film and creative projects.

We will achieve our vision through the delivery of five core aims, which are: maintaining a financially sustainable and resilient organisation; hosting a mainstream, quality programme that makes our audiences and staff proud; improving the customer experience that we offer to encourage more frequent audience attendance; increasing engagement with young people, families and the wider community; and producing quality theatre experiences that develop audiences and artists.

We put creativity at the heart of everything we do. We believe productive collaboration is the foundation for achieving excellence in all aspects of our work. We ensure that all of our staff, volunteers, trustees and our communities are involved and represented. We are ambitious for the future of our organisation, thriving on change and embracing new challenges.
