Description:

The York Theatre is the largest theatre in the centre and has a seating capacity of 788 in a semi-circular, amphitheatre configuration, featuring a thrust stage. Although the space is ideally suited to the presentation of theatre works, it can easily accommodate music, dance or concert style performances. With only 12 rows of seating from the back of the auditorium to the stage, the theatre offers an exceptional rapport between performers and audiences.
