About Ipswich Regent Theatre

Since its opening in 1929, the Regent Theatre in Ipswich has also known under two other names - the Gaumont and, for one year only, the Odeon. The theatre holds just over 1,700 people making it East Anglia's largest theatre. It is currently run by Ipswich Borough Council, who took it on following controversy over its future in 1989.

On the day of performance Front of House staff will be available to assist you to your seats and answer any last minute questions.


A Duty Manager will also be available and may be contacted via the Box Office.


For the benefit of your fellow theatregoers please turn off all pagers, mobile phones and similar devices during the performance.

Bars are open one hour before the start of the production until the end of the last interval.
