The Old 505 Theatre is located in the upstairs ballroom of the historic 100 year old Newtown School Of Arts. Currently, there is no wheelchair access to level one but we are working closely with the trustees of the building on their refurbishment plan to improve access and hope in the future to be completely accessible.



The theatre is fully licensed and open for pre and post show refreshments.
