The Old Rep is a historic theatre constructed and opened in 1913. This rather small, but yet astonishing, building offers you an amazing experience with its capacity of 383 seats spread in the main auditorium. The construction of the facility has been funded by Barry Jackson. It passed a refurbishment in 2014, as they wanted a modernization, and cleared the problem with the lack of a bar. The theatre has hosted live acts based on books like Solomon and Marion, Rebecca, The Trial of Peter Pan, and many more.
