The Derngate Theatre, Northampton was built in 1983 to the rear of the Royal Theatre on the site of a previous bus station. The Theatre opened on the 4th of April 1983 with a show staring Jack Jones. The Derngate is linked to the Royal Theatre next door and has a capacity of 1,500 when used for classical Concerts and 1,200 for so called 'Lyric' performances.

The Derngate was designed to be able to stage a large variety of productions such as Opera, Dance, Musicals and Concerts and can be altered to house productions in the round. The Theatre is normally used to house touring productions and is run in conjuction with the Royal Theatre next door.
