About Us

East Riding Theatre is a vibrant, professional theatre located in a converted Baptist chapel in Beverley. Our current Artistic Director is the Actor and Director Adrian Rawlins. Founded by actor and Beverley resident Vincent Regan and achieved through a huge community effort, the theatre opened its doors for the first time in December 2014. It has since delivered an eclectic programme of quality theatre, music and entertainment to the people of HU17 and beyond. 


We are run mostly by volunteers who bring their skills, energy and enthusiasm to every aspect of the theatre and support our small team of paid staff.
