The Y Theatre is a bustling live performance venue based in Leicester city centre. Our eclectic programme includes music, comedy, theatre, dance and spoken word. The 300 seat theatre also comfortably hosts candle-lit cabaret style events and standing gigs. Built in 1900, The Y is the oldest surviving theatre in Leicester.
We offer a diverse range of courses, classes and workshops that give people an opportunity to learn a new skill, follow a lifelong ambition or just try something fun. We are passionate about having the best people for the job; our tutors bring creativity to their teaching as well as being effective group facilitators.
The theatre itself has a flexible downstairs auditorium and a fixed seating balcony. The auditorium can easily be converted to accommodate standing music gigs, relaxed cabaret nights or stalls seating in rows. Some events will be reserved and others unreserved, therefore it is advisable to check at the time of booking. We take private bookings too and we've even held hosted wedding receptions in our main auditorium!
