More about The Maltings Arts Theatre:

The Maltings Arts Theatre is a 140-seat theatre and has long been a part of St Albans' cultural make-up, enjoying a rich heritage over the years and providing a home for scores of live performance events that might otherwise have struggled to find a stage.

St Albans theatre company, OVO, took control of the theatre in 2011, when it was under threat of closure, and since then has been working with external production companies and associate partners to bring the good times back to The Maltings.

Sporting a fresh, new, contemporary look and run by one member of staff and a host of passionate volunteers, the theatre now hosts a range of dramatic, musical and youth performance, spanning a range of traditional and classic drama, comedy, blues and folk nights, youth theatre projects, dance, opera, chamber music, workshops and poetry.
