The Courtyard is Herefordshire’s Centre for the Arts and the leading arts provider in the county, presenting a diverse programme of theatre, music, dance, comedy, film and visual arts.
We have a 436-seat main house, a 120-seat studio theatre, rehearsal rooms, a gallery, meeting spaces and an award-winning cafe bar. Whilst being primarily a receiving venue, we also produce shows in house including our annual panto and youth theatre shows. We have a varied live, film and visual arts programme, a thriving youth theatre and work extensively with people of all ages in the community.
