Live events

Are you ready to tread the boards and take to the stage? 

Whether you are looking for a South West venue on your professional tour, or are a local wanting to host a fundraiser, the state-of-the-art Parabola Arts Centre is a wonderful venue.  The theatre seats 300+ and is a modern space within a Grade II listed building.

There are plenty of rooms for cast and crew, and two large reception spaces for audience hospitality.

Our team have a wealth of experience delivering high-profile live events, and can assist on the planning, front of house and technical elements. Although the performing is all down to you! 

As strategic partners of some of Cheltenham’s many Festivals, Cheltenham Ladies’ College has hosted events with renowned performers such as Nicola Benedetti, Jamie Cullum, Sarah Millican and Dawn French.  

The Princess Hall is ideal for large performances such as concerts whilst the Parabola Arts Centre is perfect for more intimate events.

We are fully-licenced and can organise pre-show drinks with a glass of fizz on arrival (from £5.50+VAT per glass) and canapés (from £19.50+VAT per person). Or even a bar (from £175.00+VAT).
