Theatre

A feast of drama awaits you at Bowhill

As you relax in your theatre seat, waiting in anticipation for the lights to go down, you might find it hard to believe that you are actually sitting in a game larder! But that was the original function of this incredible artistic space.

In 1989 we had the bold idea of transforming the Estate’s old cold storage room into a 72-seat theatre with advanced sound and lighting facilities. We further upgraded the theatre in 2006 with a new bar and foyer that make a splendid place ideal to relax with a drink before the show or during the interval.

Regular Bowhill visitor and renowned drama fan Sir Walter Scott would no doubt have approved of the larder’s starring new role!

Our theatre may be small, but its utterly unique atmosphere and glorious location regularly attract very talented theatre companies. Find out about upcoming Theatre shows on our Whats On page.
