New Theatre Oxford

New Theatre Oxford (previously known as the Apollo Theatre Oxford) is Oxford’s main commercial theatre. It has a capacity of 1,785 people.

The first theatre was built in 1836, and the second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue, and finally, in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
