About the Venue
The SandPit Theatre is a 268 seat arts venue based on the campus of Sandringham School, an Artsmark Gold School. Since the Theatre’s opening fifteen years ago, we have endeavoured to provide a cultural hub for the whole community of St. Albans and further districts. To do so, we programme a wide range of events, including numerous school performances, and external hires including, but not limited to, educational lectures, football club presentations, pottery open days and amateur dance and drama company showcases. 2016 sees the venue celebrate its 15 year anniversary - look out for exciting events to come!
Little Diggers Events
We also aim to specifically engage families and children aged 3-7 with the arts through our ‘Little Diggers’ scheme, a combination of theatre, workshops and Show screenings which has been recently nominated as a Finalist at the Mayor's Pride Awards for 'Community Project of the Year' - read more about the scheme on our 'Little Diggers' page coming soon!
