About

Chesterfield's theatre opened in 1949 in the Stephenson Memorial Hall which was built in 1879 as a tribute to the 'Father of the Railways' George Stephenson who had moved to Chesterfield in 1838. More than 100 years later, the Hall was home to a Cinema Company. Following its closure, a public appeal raised £5,000 and the Hall became the Civic Theatre.

Notable actors and actresses have appeared at the Theatre, including John Arnatt, Nigel Davenport and David McCallum. On 31 March 1958, Diana Rigg made her stage debut here in 'The Passing of the Third Floor Back'.

In 1982, the Civic became the Pomegranate Theatre, named after the pomegranate tree that appears on Chesterfield's coat of arms. Today, in addition to the stage performances, there are shows in the Bar including jazz nights and craft demonstrations. The Theatre also goes out into Queen's Park in Chesterfield town centre once a year for 'Pomegranate in the Park'. Productions have included 'Taming of the Shrew' and 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' performed by open air specialists Oddsocks.

The main stage hosts drama, comedy, ballet and musicals from both professional companies and amateur societies but, without doubt the favourite every year is the Pantomime.
