The Venue

Nationally Recognised

The University of Chichester is nationally recognised as a provider of high quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses across dance, performance and visual art. As one of the smallest universities in the country we pride ourselves on providing a close-knit and friendly environment where students and artists can create and develop their practice.

The University of Chichester's Department of Theatre

As a venue within a university, research and experimentation is at the heart of what the ShowRoom does and we strive to support and develop a safe environment where creativity can flourish, ideas can be challenged and new work can be made.

The ShowRoom is a multi-purpose space, used for lectures and class work during the day, and as a 212 seat, well equipped, professional theatre at night.
