Towngate Theatre

We’ve been entertaining Basildon for 30 years – with drama, musicals, classical concerts, comedy, panto and so much more. On Saint Martin’s Square at the heart of Basildon, we’re just 6 minutes walk from Basildon Station, with plenty of parking next door.  


Play your part

There’s so many ways you can get involved with the Towngate, from putting a spring in your step with a Summer school dance class to joining the crew on a Towngate Youth Theatre production to performance poetry.


Coffee and cake at the Towngate makes a fantastic break from a day’s shopping in Basildon. Pre-theatre meals, cocktails and lunch break snacks mean Towngate Café is the perfect place to share the fun and drama.
