SADLY THE CASTLE IS ABOUT TO CLOSE ITS DOORS, This is a fabulous place to visit and the Soul Weekends have been absolutely fantastic, but I have recently been told that the castle is about to close because it isn't making enough profit ? there were two picture palaces in Wellingborough, both of which were demolished and we were promised...

The Castle is a wonderful venue that offers fantastic activities for kids, a reasonably priced restaurant, friendly staff and wonderful shows. The Castle manages to attract a variety of different audiences by offering; amateur theatre, stand up comedy, music and a cinema. One of the best entertainment venues in Wellingborough.

The closure of this theatre has been badly handled. Wellingborough Council gave 6 mths notice in March, the adminstrators vouched it was to stay open for the current period until October when they emailed me. Turning up to an event last Saturday to be told it had been closed the previous Tuesday was not amusing , when several people including... More

Such a shame that the Castle has been closed down through lack of funding But will hopefully be re- open again in the near future by the Wellingborough council

After many years of passing the theatre we went for the first time this year to see Singing in the rain, which was very good. We were pleasantly surprised with the theatre. Good car park, nice bar and comfortable seats in the theatre with good leg room. We have been back 4 times since and every show has been great.... More

Went to the Castle with daughter and son-in-law to see Rich Hall an American comedian and enjoyed a show containing adult humour. I believe that the venue is under threat of closure at the moment and that would be a shame as a full house attended the show. Films are also shown at the theatre.

This was the story of Rod Stewart's rise to fame with a tribute singer and band. The show was brilliant we had a great night.

A small local theatre that has that comfy feel. Good acoustics and views from the comfortable seats. A good variety of stage shows and films on offer. Refreshments and an onsite bar together with on site parking make a visit to the theatre a pleasure.

The Castle is a pleasant little theatre that hosts a variety of plays, comedy and films. It is slightly let down by lack of staff on performance nights, leading to long queues for drinks and snacks. I queued up to buy some sweets but was told she didn't know how much they cost and could only sell me ice cream... More
