A STANDARD THEATRE HIRE COMPRISES:
- A 90 minute event
- Access to the venue from 2:00pm on the day of the event
- Use of the Dressing Room from 4:00pm on the day of the event
THE SERVICE WE PROVIDE:
- Advertise your event on The Marlborough Theatre website
- Add performances to a wide range of local listings publications

- Selling tickets online (via www.brownpapertickets.co.uk) and over the bar in advance (cash only)
Please note: Due to us having a very small team at the Marlborough, we don’t have the capacity to market for hiring companies. What this means is that we provide some marketing support; we will display posters & fliers in the pub, retweet any tweets that you mention the Marlborough in and share your facebook event, provide you with a list of media contacts and send information of your show to local listings, but that is the extent to what we can provide. The main responsibility for marketing the show has to lie with the company.
- For all pricing see our Marlborough Theatre & Green Room Hires Rates document
- Artists/Companies always keep 100% of box office income
- Please note we don’t provide technical support, including set-up, so if are not providing your own technician then you will need to hire a technician to set-up and run your event. We can provide a list of freelance technicians for you to contact.
- If you would like to present an event over multiple nights (e.g. week long run) we can offer reduced rates to hire
- The Marlborough Theatre is available for rehearsals at half day & daily rates. For all pricing see our Marlborough Theatre Green Room and Hires fees document.
