About Us

Situated in the heart of Prescot, Shakespeare North Playhouse is a fantastic place for everyone to visit and enjoy.

Like Prescot itself, Shakespeare North Playhouse is a building that embraces both modern and historic design. Crafted from brick, glass and beautiful timber finishes, you’ll discover lots of different spaces here – the traditional Shakespearean Theatre, the Studio, and Sir Ken Dodd Performance Garden. Plus an Exhibition Space, Café, Bar, Shop, Piazza, Learning Space and Meeting Rooms.

To see a Virtual Reality version of the Cockpit Theatre, take a look here. This gives you a perfect view of the seats and the stage to make booking that little bit easier for you.

We look forward to welcoming you. Together we’ll make the building come alive!
