The Y Theatre is a bustling live performance venue based in Leicester city centre and built in 1900 making it Leicester’s Oldest Theatre. Our eclectic programme includes music, comedy, theatre, dance, new work and family shows. We are also passionate about supporting new, emerging and local artists, and being an open and welcoming space for the whole community. We love bringing you fantastic shows, from brand new work to the big name favourites, and strive to offer these at affordable prices. We do not receive any regular funding so the generosity of our community is what keeps us going. While we love being Leicester’s oldest theatre and having such a great history behind us, we are also pretty proud of everything we do now and have planned for the future. Take a look at who we are, how we got here and how you can help us continue to grow for our community.
Community Café open 10am-3pm, Mon-Thur. Join us in our warm bar, grab a St Martin’s coffee and some cake, crack on with work or just have a lovely moment of calm in your busy day. We’ll save you a seat!
