Welcome to the Burnavon Theatre

Welcome to the Burnavon, the premier arts and cultural venue, and the hub of arts, drama, music, theatre and dance in Mid–Ulster.

As well as staging high quality performances, the venue has a varied arts and cultural programme that you can take part in, Irish language activities if you want to learn about a new culture, and a state of the art Visitor Information Centre if you want to explore the heritage and culture of the District or further afield. 

Each of the four sections in the web site give you detailed information on the events, exhibitions, workshops, programmes and services available within the centre – so much more for you to see, do and explore. You can also join the Burnavon Theatre on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with our latest news stories, competitions and updated event listings.  

The Burnavon is just the ticket for business meetings, seminars and conferences. Situated in the heart of Mid Ulster, the Burnavon is easily accessible from all parts of Northern Ireland, offering a wide range of facilities, free parking and catering packages to suit all tastes and budgets.  We look forward to welcoming you to the Burnavon!


The Burnavon gratefully acknowledges the support received from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland through its Equipment and Minor Refurbishment programme. The funding aims to enable organisations to purchase equipment and carry out minor refurbishment to their premises to enhance their artistic services.
