Queen’s Theatre, Barnstaple

Queen’s Theatre is a 655 seat traditional receiving house situated in Barnstaple’s Town Centre.

The venue was originally named The Queen’s Hall from the 1952 rebuild and has been in its current format since 1993; however, a theatre has been on this site since 1435.

The venue plays host to a wide variety of touring productions. From classic dramas, to musicals, ballet, orchestral concerts and comedians, audiences can enjoy the varied programme from two comfortable levels of seating.

Hosting a welcome bar at stalls level and another Upstairs At The Queen’s on the second floor, the venue opens as a café during the daytime, for pre-show dining and also acts as a perfect space for meetings and private drinks receptions.


The Landmark, Ilfracombe

The Landmark is a wonderful, multi-purpose arts complex built on the stunning seafront of Ilfracombe.

Built in 1997, this unique building consists of a wonderful 479 horseshoe shaped theatre and the Pavilion, a circular function room.

The theatre space is a beautiful space where audiences and artists share the same air and art in a manner not often found. With wonderful acoustics, it is the perfect setting for intimate shows, especially plays, one-man performances and community productions.

The Pavilion is fully flexible where conferencing, celebrations and theatre can all sit perfectly.

In addition to this, The Landmark has vast front of house areas, and The Quarterdeck bistro/bar area with stunning views out to sea, and a terrace where visitors can enjoy a drink, as the summer sun sets over the waters.

Queen’s Theatre and The Landmark are operated by Landmark Theatres.

Landmark Theatres are working in partnership with organisations nationally and regionally including the National Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, funded touring theatres, consortia of regional producing houses, education institutions, health and wellbeing providers and other community embedded organisations, new writing specialist organisations and commercial management – including of course Selladoor Worldwide. This partnership working aims of maximise capacity to contribute to change. 

Above all Landmark Theatres seek to fulfil objectives through a single governance and leadership structure that works across multiple venues in multiple places creating opportunities for efficiency, shared learning and innovation.   

Landmark Theatres have an in-depth understanding of the places in which they work and value that a funded producing theatre can provide a driver for enhancing the economic and social wellbeing of towns and cities. This new organisation brings a commitment to being a change maker and to being both a value led and teaching and learning organisation, being respective and responsive to the audiences it serves.
