Inside the Bonington Theatre

Bonington Theatre

The newly refurbished Bonington Theatre is part of Arnold Leisure Centre. It presents a varied programme of high quality arts events, both amateur and professional, for all ages, bringing the best live music and theatre to your doorstep.

Update on New Box Office System

The Bonington Theatre and the new Box Office are OPEN FOR BUSINESS at Arnold Leisure Centre.

The new box office system went live on 29th July with easy-to-use touch screens and flexibility between swimming pool user needs and theatre ticketing.

The Autumn season brochure is currently being finalised and will be sent out during August. The What's On Guide here on the website is currently being updated and lists the live shows ahead - films will be added soon.

Tickets for all future events will go on sale shortly. Box Office staff will happily take your details and we'll get back to you as soon as tickets go on sale.

Follow the What's On link to the events calendar - you're sure to find something that you can't afford to miss! If you've booked tickets with us during the past 3 years, you will automatically receive an Autumn season brochure in the post.

Pop in or call the Box Office on 0115 956 0733.

The box office opening hours are: 

Monday to Friday 9.00am to 9.00pm
Saturday 9.00am to 5.00pm
Sunday 9.00am to 9.00pm

The box office will also be open for one hour before each production.
