Pavilion Theatre Gorleston - Backstage Tours - Heritage Open Day in GREAT YARMOUTH, Great Yarmouth - Great Yarmouth

Pavilion Theatre


We're about to embark on a 5 year programme to completely refurbish and restore this original Edwardian building in time to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2026 and as part of this programme we'll be opening up areas of the building not currently accessible to the public.

The build is a unique seaside theatre which originally started life as a shelter hall that put on entertainment for the public of Gorleston and has gone through many uses over the years.

As such there are plenty of stories to tell about the changes that the Pavilion has seen and plenty of hidden treasures to spot as we walk through the building talking about its history.

As part of the tour you'll get to go backstage and see what how the building operates today and weather permitting we'll even head outside to the roof terraces for the best view in Gorleston overlooking the beach and gardens!

As part of our commitment to making the tour accessible to all, we'll be live-streaming at least one of our tours for people to access online.
