The Stephen Joseph Theatre is a theatre-in-the-round – in other words; it is a theatre where the audience surround the theatre stage. The theatre’s roots date back to 1955; however, the theatre in its present form has been open since 1996. Guitarist Richard Hawley’s 2005 album cover “Coles Corner” was taken here.
