Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has the ability to transform to an entirely flat floor with an internal bar, which is ideal for award ceremonies, gala dinners or exhibitions. The theatre also has a more intimate auditorium that has the flexibility to accommodate small-scale theatre, music gigs, small award ceremonies, conferences and parties with bleacher theatre style seating that can be removed to create a flexible flat floor area. The theatre is licensed for civil weddings and provides a perfect setting for a wedding reception to accommodate parties of all sizes. The theatre offers a full events service including logistics management, accommodation bookings, transport bookings, production and bespoke catering.
We have recently held McAfee’s All Hands International Conference broadcast via satellite around the world as well as accommodating the UK delegates in house, we also host regular Gala Dinner Awards Ceremonies for companies such as Bucks Business First, the Bucks & MK Sport Awards and Buckinghamshire NHS Trust.
