Rotherham Underground is a new performing arts hub for Rotherham: a flexible performance space in the town centre, and home to a professional theatre company touring work across the borough and beyond. This initiative was created by Alice Bartlett and Craig Roberts of Open Minds in January 2018.  Rotherham Underground is the new home for all theatre work from Open Minds.

Throughout 2018, we are piloting a diverse programme of theatre, film, music and comedy  – and actively asking our audiences for feedback on what they’ve enjoyed most, and what they’d like us to do more of. The venue fully opens in September 2018.


There are opportunities to get involved too, including:


  • a resident repertory company for early-career actors
  • expansion of our popular youth theatre programme with activities for a wider range of ages and abilities, as well as school holiday projects
  • an education programme supporting creativity and CPD in schools
  • a playwriting group to develop and showcase new work
  • monthly meetings of Rotherham’s new Magic Circle


We’ll be updating this site regularly. Please check back regularly to find out more!


Our venue can also be hired privately for entertainment, hospitality, or training events - with catering and a licensed bar if required.  Whether you have a private party, wedding, conference, club or rehearsal, we can accommodate your needs at a price that’s right.
