Rotherham Underground is a new performing arts hub for Rotherham: a flexible performance space in the town centre, and home to a professional theatre company touring work across the borough and beyond. This initiative has grown out of the theatre ambitions of Open Minds Theatre Company.


Throughout 2018, we will be piloting a diverse programme of theatre, film, music and comedy  – and actively asking our audiences for feedback on what they’ve enjoyed most, and what they’d like us to do more of. A calendar of introductory events will be available shortly.


There’ll be opportunities to get involved too, including:


  • a resident repertory company for early-career actors
  • expansion of our popular youth theatre programme (formerly Open Minds Youth Theatre) with activities for a wider range of ages and abilities, as well as school holiday projects
  • an education programme supporting creativity and CPD in schools
  • a playwriting group to develop and showcase new work
  • monthly meetings of Rotherham’s new Magic Circle


We’ll be updating this site regularly throughout December, adding details on all of the above, plus one or two extra surprises. Please check back regularly to find out more!


Our venue can also be hired privately for entertainment, hospitality, or training events - with catering and a licensed bar if required.
