The Queen’s Theatre has been crowned with the title of the Most Welcoming Theatre in the East for the third year in a row.

As part of the annual UK Theatre Awards, Most Welcoming Theatre is an opportunity for audiences across the country to celebrate their local theatre.

The Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane is among 12 regional and national winners who will be invited to the awards on Sunday, October 14 at London Guildhall, where an overall winner will be announced.

Douglas Rintoul, artistic director said: “At the Queen’s Theatre we’re reaching out to many more members of our community – who may not have previously felt able to visit the theatre – with several new initiatives: a more diverse programme, special ticket prices for under 26 year olds, relaxed and dementia-friendly performances, more audio described performances and £1 tickets for first-timers.

“This award is a real testament to the passion, care and pride embodied by our brilliant staff.”
