Kenilworth is lucky enough to boast two fantastic and very active theatres; the Priory Theatre and the Talisman Theatre Arts Centre. Plus a thriving Community Centre, incoporporating Abbey Cinema.
The Priory Theatre is a self-funding theatre run by our members for the benefit of the local community. We produce around 9 productions a year including a broad mix of entertainment: comedy, drama and pantomime.
We are a member of the Little Theatre Guild and are very proud of our standard of productions and our friendly atmosphere.
We have a thriving Youth Theatre, and the theatre has an extensive range of costumes and props available to hire. We work closely with many charitable organisations in the area that regularly book performances at special rates to raise funds for their organisation

Talisman Theatre and Arts Centre
The Talisman Theatre is a member theatre of the Little Theatre Guild and is justly proud of the highest standards in all departments. We aim to stage ten main house productions every year, in addition to occasional ‘Studio Saturday Night’ productions in our Studio. We also have a thriving Youth Theatre Group which stages productions in the Main House. Fund-raising one-off shows are also produced and we host shows produced by other groups, whenever they can be squeezed in. The Company was founded in 1942. In 1969 we moved from what is now Talisman Square to our present theatre in Barrow Road, which seats 156 people, as well as accommodating a bar/foyer with regular art exhibitions, and a studio for rehearsal and small-scale productions. We are a registered charity and are completely run by volunteers. We receive no grants or sponsorship, and so all income is generated from ticket sales, membership and donations. The company includes and welcomes actors, designers, technicians,backstage and front of house assistants.
