Welcome to the Apollo Theatre

Newport, Isle of Wight PO30 1JT

The Apollo Theatre is a member of the Little Theatre Guild of Great Britain (LTG).  The little Georgian building is a  former Methodist chapel in Pyle Street, Newport, Isle of Wight, which was bought in 1970 and converted by a team of dedicated volunteers.  Every year we put on a main season of seven shows as well as visiting productions,  vintage films, jazz concerts and other events.  We are continually investing in the building and its facilities, and have state-of-the-art lighting and sound and a small but comfortable auditorium (with seats originally saved from Shanklin cinema!).  wheelchair accessible tiny The auditorium is wheelchair-accessible, with spaces for wheelchair users and an accessible loo close by, and there is a loop system for hearing-aid users.  hearing aid loop sign tiny The well-stocked bar offers special themed cocktails and a new exhibition of local artists for each production in ‘Art in the Bar’.

As I’m sure you can imagine, keeping the Apollo Theatre open and offering good theatre to the Isle of Wight costs a lot of money.  However, we’ve joined a great new scheme which means that up to 5% of your household bills will be donated to us – at no cost to you!  What do you have to do?  Just make one phone call or go to a website and you’ll be raising money for the Apollo Theatre every day, just by leading your normal life.  Click here to find out more …
