This well-equipped "little gem of a theatre" in Colchester Town Centre has been welcoming visiting amateur and professional groups onto our stage since 2002, and a variety of users into our studio and rehearsal spaces and meeting rooms. We have packed seasonal programmes offering genuine choice. From classic and modern drama to musical theatre, stand-up comedy nights to school hires, classical music to magicians - we do our best to make the experience of all our hirers and patrons enjoyable. We also host KATS, a youth drama skills group who perform twice a year in the theatre, and performance and creative arts workshops.

The Headgate has its own in-house production group, Headgate Theatre Productions, who mount 4 or 5 plays each year plus a pantomime following open audition.

The Headgate has a main auditorium with a maximum capacity of 87 people, a studio, rehearsal room and meeting room, along with a licensed bar.
