Yvonne Arnaud Theatre



The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre opened it's doors in 1965 as a proud memorial to the much-loved French actress and has been providing the people of Guildford, Surrey and beyond with excellent vibrant drama and entertainment since. 

On the Main Stage a varied programme of theatre includes drama, comedy, pro and post West End plays and classics plus opera, ballet and children’s theatre. The Theatre is also proud to produce Guildford’s annual Christmas family pantomime.

A second smaller stage in the Mill Studio also offers fantastic theatre, an annual art exhibition and is the base for the activities of the thriving Youth Theatre. A mix of drama activities for young people is offered all year around including drama classes, workshops, educational projects and a summer show.

The ideal place for a complete night out, the Theatre also has bars, a restaurant, a café and a stunning riverside garden.
