Ever taken the shortcut from Banbury train station to the shopping centre ? Ever crossed the bridge from the bus station to The Mill and wondered? Ever watched a crew work their way through Banbury town lock?

If any of the above is true we’ve got just the thing for you. Banbury town centre has revolved around, brushed up against and sometimes ignored the canal that runs alongside it for over 200 years. On Sep 30th-Oct 2nd we’ll be bringing history to life in a unique theatre within a working dry dock (the oldest one on the inland waterways no less). Details for all the shows are on the Programme 2016 page

STOP PRESS: A change in the catering arrangements for the matinee mean that we can now offer it on a ‘pay what you can’ basis. You can still reserve online to be sure of a place or email tickets [at] theatreinthedock.org.uk
