What is The Underground Theatre?

The Underground Theatre is an exciting new concept for Plymouth, an adaptable community space for the Stonehouse Community and all of Plymouth. It will host music, theatre, dance and community events, as well as having studio and exhibition space. A a small scale venue it will seat up to 120 people and will help to provide a new venue for bands, solo artists, theatre groups and dance companies. Alternatively the main hall will be able to be used as a hall for a wide variety of events.

Currently we are fundraising and planning the renovation of this beautiful building.

We are Community Interest Company and all future profits will be invested in the project or the community. Please visit our other pages for more detailed information.

We are grateful for support from the Architectural heritage Fund and Plymouth City Council Social Enterprise Scheme for grant support and other assistance in the devlopment phase of our project.

Coronavirus News

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, work on the theatre had to stop, including events and fundraising.

Prior to lockdown, surveys, building work and architectural planning had revealed that further work will be required needing additional funding and funding streams are, understandably, currently somewhat limited.

We will keep our followers informed when we are able to continue with our plans to bring this beautiful building back into use for the community, but like many venues, the future is presently unknown.


We had a very succesful Crowdfunding campaign ( see left) and have had some generous donations from individuals toward our renovations.

In our Grant applications we have had strong support from Plymouth City Council both in our Crowdfunding campaign and through a Social Enterprise Grant and Loan to develop our renovation project. Additionally we have had a Project Viability Grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund.

We are continuing to seek grants and sponsorshiop for this exciting project. If you own a company and are interested in sponsorship please get in touch. If you would like to donate directly, you may do so via the DONATE button below. Thank you!

TUT is keen to promote and support  live music of all genres in Plymouth, especially as smaller venues have closed. We expect to host bands and solo artists regularly as well as hosting jazz, chamber and other classical music.

We plan to host a resident big band in the future, with musicians drawn from the local area, both to perform and to accompany other artists or productions. We will also encourage new writing and composition and will be promoting new musicians and groups, as well as planning competitons and awards.

The Underground Theatre has an ethos of making the performing arts available to all.

Training and education are part of that ethos and the theatre will host practitioners and other organisations for training sessions across the performing arts as well as our in-house training activities. We have already had a substantial number of enquiries, even before we're open!

We take Safeguarding seriously and have a safeguarding policy in place, whilst also requring groups hiring the theatre to have an adequate policy.
