Important notice

As of 1st April 2022, Peterborough Ltd is responsible for the service delivery of the Peterborough Libraries and Archives, Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery and Flag Fen - and Selladoor is responsible for The Key Theatre.
The websites for each service will be updated over the coming weeks.

Something awesome is coming soon...

The Key Theatre is in the process of transferring ownership. Going forward it will be run by Selladoor Venues, the same people who bring you the New Theatre, Peterborough.

We are working hard to get everything transferred and bring you a brand new website.

In the meantime, we are still open and operating from this website. For tickets, click the what's on button below.
