Leighton Buzzard’s Library Theatre is the main community theatre of the Bedfordshire town. Run by Central Bedfordshire Council, the 170-capacity theatre regularly stages drama, live music and stand-up comedy, as well as film screenings.
The Library Theatre’s large auditorium comes equipped with raked seating, meaning that there isn’t a bad seat in the house. The theatre proudly hosts a range of stage productions, from high-quality commercial shows to community theatre productions. Recent performances at the theatre include a local production of Blackadder Goes Forth, Five Star Swing’s Hitz From The Blitz, and comedy from the stand-up comedian Jim Tavaré.
While the Library Theatre often welcomes stage productions, it mostly operates as an accessible cinema, showing the latest commercial releases including blockbusters like the latest Star Wars or Marvel movie, or live ‘event cinema’ screenings of National Theatre productions such as Macbeth starring Sir Ian McKellen.
No matter whether you’re looking to catch a film with the kids or catch a relaxed stage production, the Library Theatre is the place to go in Leighton Buzzard for your cultural fix.
