First opened in 1989, the Towngate Theatre is owned by Basildon District Council and is run by the Council's Cultural Services section. Work is continually underway to build up a show calendar which will include shows put together by our own Towngate Promotions, as well as popular, entertaining and occasionally more cultural and controversial productions brought in from elsewhere.
See details of our new panto in the local Information section.

Be safe this Bonfire Night
Be safe this Bonfire Night by making sure that you, pets and your family know and follow the very important Fireworks Code. Have fun if you are going to an event or having friends and family round at home. It includes safety rules for sparklers too!
