Our History

1971: The Victoria Line was complete, the threepence piece ceased to become legal tender, and, most significantly of all, the Wyvern Theatre opened its doors! More than five decades later the theatre has established itself as one of the leading live entertainment venues in Wiltshire, welcoming thousands of customers through its doors every year.

The spacious auditorium boasts 635 seats, each designed to be no further than 70ft from the stage, so you're always in the heart of the action. The theatre offers a mixed programme of concerts, comedy, dance, drama, exhibitions, musical theatre, and local amateur productions.

Named after the mythical beast, similar to a dragon, which was once thought to be the emblem of the Kings of Wessex. The Wyvern Theatre is bursting with magic and escapism.
