The Frazer Theatre is a theatre based in Knaresborough which is owned and run by The Knaresborough Players Ltd.

The Frazer Theatre Main Auditorium has a stage and fixed seating (127 seats + space for 3 wheelchairs) and is available for hire to both professional and amateur organisations, as well as for private functions, at very competitive rate.

A Licensed Bar will normally be run by The Knaresborough Players to support all events in the theatre auditorium with proceeds going towards the upkeep of the theatre.
Kitchen facilities are available for use with your hire, if required. The kitchen includes a cooker and hob, hot water boiler, kettle, sink and dishwasher. Hirers should provide their own consumables and, as per the hire agreement, leave the kitchen in a clean and tidy state.

Hiring the Theatre costs £50 (£40 for registered charities) per hour or part thereof. A £50 non-refundable deposit is required with booking.

All hirers are asked to complete a risk assessment form at the time of application. This should reflect your event to the best of your ability but you will be asked to review and update this immediately before the hire.
