Since The Maddermarket Theatre was formed in 1921 by its founder Nugent Monk, audiences across the ages have enjoyed incredible theatre, comedies and music concerts.
We’re a community theatre in the heart of Norwich. We’re a registered charity (no. 234993) and rely on ticket sales, bar sales and donations, as well as the generosity of our volunteers.
We’re home to Mad Red Theatre School and our resident amateur theatre company The Norwich Players for which we make all our own sets and costumes.
Find out more about our fascinating history; from where the name Maddermarket Theatre derives, to our link with Shakespeare, to our founder Nugent Monk.
The Norwich Players have been around since 1911 and have been performing at The Maddermarket since it's formation as a Theatre in 1921; therefore, it comes as no surprise that the group have performed over 1000 plays on our stage since then! Check them out.
The Maddermarket Theatre are proud to own the largest collection of costumes as a theatre, in East Anglia, and they are all available to you for hire! See what we have to offer.
