Birmingham Repertory Theatre (The REP)

The Rep, in centenary square, is located next to the international convention centre and opposite Birmingham symphony hall.

It is within walking distance of all the Birmingham Stations, and the “Q” car park in Brindley place is a few minutes’ walk away.

The Rep is a bright modern building, consisting of three venues on the same site: The House with 825 seats, The studio with 300 seats, and The Door with 140 seats.

Bars and toilets are available on each level of the building, with the main bar being in the large foyer of the theatre.

You can also find cloak room facilities, an ice cream kiosk and several seating areas dotted around the main foyer.

This venue has more ladies’ toilets than most theatres, but there is always a queue (I wonder ladies if we will ever see the day when be able to just walk into the toilets like our male friends do). 

The toilets are clean and well equipped with hand soap and loo roll.

Our seats for the production of the Winslow Boy were in the House at the end of row C. We had a great view of the stage and were also near the exit  which is always handy for the dash to the bar at the interval.

The Rep is a pleasant centrally located theatre and one of our favourite local venues for a pleasant evening out.
