THEATRE SHOP, Clevedon
Theatre Shop Clevedon is, as you might expect, a theatre in a shop. Once the shop was empty but now it’s filled with energy and laughter on a regular basis. This small but perfectly formed venue began life as a short-term pop-up, conceived to bring something new to the high street. Now in its fifth-year of trading, Theatre Shop retains an informal vibe alongside a commitment to presenting an ambitious programme of professional performance.
Theatre Shop Clevedon is jointly managed by Theatre Orchard and locally based theatre company Living Spit whose wares can often be sampled on the Shopfloor. Grab a locally-made beverage from our hand-crafted bar – sit back and swill back your culture in relaxed fashion.
Theatre Shop Clevedon’s programme also radiates activity out onto the streets of Clevedon. We strike up creative partnerships with other organisations in the town to make Clevedon a sparkling place to be.
“It’s great to see empty retail units used this way, and this is a show that should sprinkle extra Christmas magic across this Victorian seaside town.”
Lyn Gardner at The Guardian on Nutshell Nutcracker (produced by Theatre Orchard and Ballet Central for Theatre Shop).
Theatre Shop Clevedon’s performance space is accessible, and a complimentary carer’s ticket is available for audience members with access requirements. Toilets within the Shop are upstairs, but accessible facilities are available in adjacent Queen’s Square, just outside the venue.

“You can’t beat the feeling you get from sharing a space with a live audience and performers. The humanity, the intimacy and the sense of community that come from these shared experiences seem to me be right at the heart of being human. Projects such as Theatre Shop thrive because committed and passionate people can work a special magic in small successful communities like Clevedon.”
