The Waterside Theatre is situated in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire and was designed by the architects Aedas and RHWL Arts Team, with construction by Wilmot Dixon. This modern Theatre was built at a cost of some £47 million and was opened by Cilla Black on the 12th of October 2010.

The Theatre was constructed to replace the Aylesbury Civic Hall which had been built in 1975 as a multi-purpose venue but had largely been outgrown by its audience. The new Waterside Theatre has a larger 1,220 seat auditorium in the shape of a rectangular box, clad in wood, with stalls and two balconies, with 3 slips running down each side, and a rectangular proscenium. The Theatre can also be used as a music venue with standing room for 1,800 people. There is also a smaller studio space with seating for 220.

The whole complex incorporates a large Front of House with spacious foyer areas, ample toilets, and many bars, and even a cafe. In between the two auditoria is a block containing the main Theatre's fly tower, dressing rooms and offices etc.

The Waterside Theatre is perfectly suited to its role as a large scale touring venue for West End and Provincial productions, Live Music Concerts, local community performances and groups, and also conferences and film screenings.
