Get ready to be entertained by DriveINSIDE Theatre

Family event | 13 May - 6 Jun

One of the world’s most unusual theatres will arrive this May with over 30 live shows.

In this unique venue, which will be here for four weeks from May 13, the audience will drive to a dedicated parking space underneath Europe’s largest tent, a 68,000 sq ft marquee and the Theatrical Drive Jockeys will ensure the fun starts immediately.

Beyond Theatre’s creative director explained: “We are looking to give our audiences more than just a great theatre show. We are looking to give them an “Entertainment Experience”. Once they drive into our theatre environment, reality is left behind and the entertainment begins”

COVID secure

The venue has been verified as Covid-secure because social distancing is maintained at all times and there is plenty of fresh air circulating thanks to being under an enormous tent that is open at the sides. This also ensures the performers and audiences are protected from inclement weather.

Audiences will be allowed to exit their vehicles on the driver’s side and then sit outside their cars in their own private, socially distanced and isolated area. A waiter to bonnet service is available for food and drinks.

More than 30 spectacular shows

Beyond Theatre has put together a fantastic and varied programme of more than 30 shows during a four-week period, starting on May 13.

The venue has a capacity of 800 people in up to 200 cars, which means a potential total of 24,000 people will be able to safely enjoy live theatre again in Manchester this May.
