Theatre Severn was officially opened on 25 March 2009 and is situated on Frankwell Quay, a beautiful and tranquil riverside location based in Shrewsbury Town Centre.
With the success of the Music Hall over the last decade it became apparent that there was demand for a new theatre venue.
Construction began in November 2006. The architects for the project were Austin Smith Lord and the theatre was built by Wilmott Dixon.
The Primera Pacific seat was chosen for this landmark venue with 650 capacity. The Pacific is a supremely comfortable auditorium chair designed to be maintenance free and enabling maximum egress due to its compact envelope.
