Unity Theatre is one of the best loved Theatres in Liverpool. unity is dedicated to enhancing the quality of performing arts in the Liverpool City Region by encouraging creativity, participation, innovation and diversity. It recently won the Best Performing Venue award at the Mersey Partnership Tourism Awards. Unity has a reputation for staging innovative, high quality work in a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere. Many people will go to performances at unity that they have never heard of because they trust its judgement. In this way the theatre has built up a committed and loyal audience.


It has an excellent track record in encouraging new writing and supporting new companies at a time when many theatres are relying upon the classics to guarantee audiences. Many writers whose work was originally promoted by unity are now writing for mainstream theatre in both Liverpool and elsewhere. Many of the companies who started at unity are now touring nationally and many actors, technicians and designers who got their first experience at Unity are now in full time theatre employment.

Enjoy the comfortable and friendly atmosphere in the unitylounge. Its a great place to relax before the show and chew over the performance afterwards, often with the cast.  Open every performance night, one hour prior to the show until 11:00pm. They serve a wide selection of bottled lagers and beers,spirits,soft drinks,coffee,tea,sweets & ice cream.

Unity is one of few venues that allows you to take drinks into the auditorium and you can order your interval or post show drinks before the show.
