The Electric Theatre is a friendly and vibrant arts venue, right in the heart of Guildford. The Theatre is housed in the old electricity works built in 1913, hence the name. A number of the original features remain in the auditorium to this day.

Alongside this is their usual programme of comedy clubs, live music, plays and everything in between.
