The Lubetkin Theatre

The Lubetkin Theatre can accommodate up to 220 people and boasts modern equipment, making it a great venue for any type of production.

Whether it's a corporate event, play or pantomime, The Lubetkin Theatre is the perfect place.

The theatre is highly customizable, with various seating and stage options, and our expert technicians are always available to assist with lighting and stage design.

Sasha Lubetkin, daughter of Berthold Romanovich Lubetkin, a renowned architect who revolutionised modernist design in Britain during the 1930s, officially opened The Lubetkin Theatre in October 2009. Despite encountering bureaucratic obstacles in his efforts to become master planner and chief architect for Peterlee new town, Berthold Romanovich Lubetkin remained committed to his vision.
