Purple Playhouse Theatre

The Purple Playhouse Theatre is a fully licensed, fully accessible and centrally located venue near Brighton’s 7 Dials.

Situated on the first floor of the Grace Eyre Foundation building at the corner of Montefiore Road and Old Shoreham Road, the theatre was officially launched in 2012 but has been part of Grace Eyre for over 25 years.

As part of an old church, the beautiful theatre has a wooden floor and vaulted wooden ceiling. It has a large stained-glass window above the stage allowing light to stream in during the day. With curtains and by night, the space becomes cosy and intimate.

A café/bar serving a range of items is located on the ground floor, but a mini-bar is also available in the theatre itself during some performances. The theatre and café are available to hire together – please contact us for details.
