About

Lakeside Theatre is part of the University of Essex and the 200-seat Theatre was built in 1971 and opened in 1972. It is located beneath the iconic Brutalist building, the Albert Sloman Library, on Square 5 of the Colchester Campus.

In 2009, Lakeside Theatre completed an ambitious refurbishment programme, enabled through generous support from the Foyle Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation and the Winsten Legacy.

The theatre presents the best in touring fringe theatre performances, home grown performances, music and local groups. Set in parkland with café, lakes, sculptures and ducks.
