Festival Drayton Centre

The Festival Drayton Centre is owned and run by the community of Market Drayton and has been since 1984. It has solely evolved as a direct result of the time, dedication and commitment of its many volunteers – a staggering achievement.

The Centre underwent an extensive refurbishment and extension in January 2005 and since then, it has been sighted as a cornerstone for social and economic re-generation within the town and the surrounding area. Indeed the Festival Centre provides activities for a broad and wide spectrum of community needs. Within our walls you will see dance classes, martial arts, adult educational courses, a licensed coffee shop and a state of the art cinema and theatre experience that is admired by many.

The Festival Drayton Centre is extremely proud of its state-of-the-art auditorium, spacious and modern, the auditorium incorporates a professional working stage and a fully raked seating system that guarantees a prime view wherever you sit. Our stage is fully equipped to accommodate all manner of live events and presentations and the majority of events can be supported by our in-house sound system. The Auditorium is also home to a fully digital 2K Cinema system that screens the latest releases in both 2D and eye popping 3D. We also have a professional satellite system that allows us to screen live events from around the world!
