The Alan Cornish Theatre

On Friday 22nd April 2016, a ceremony was held to rename The Oakwood Centre’s Theatre in memory of Alan Cornish who died last year, who played a key role in the development of performing arts locally. He had been one of the founding members of Starmaker, a local theatre company for young people. 

The Alan Cornish Theatre has tiered seating for 100 people, which makes it the perfect room for formal audio-visual presentations and lectures. We also have a range of theatre productions produced by Woodley Theatre, Bezerk Productions and many more throughout the year. Your technician will find everything they need in our lighting box, to ensure your business function or production is produced to the highest standard.

Our theatre can be used for a variety of different events, come by for a tour to see how it would accommodate your next function or production.

See The Alan Cornish Theatre Terms & Conditions for more information.
