Hospitality at
The Theatre Bar

at Burnley Mechanics Theatre

The Colin Sanderson Theatre Bar is steeped in the history and heritage of the theatre building, featuring artwork which depicts its journey dating back  to 1855. Large windows flood this space with light and provide a vantage point over Burnley’s fabulous industrial townscape.
