The impressive Bacon Theatre completed in 1991 and built to a very high standard, boasts excellent sightlines and state-of-the-art facilities. The theatre owes its name to Mr Christopher Bacon, headmaster of Dean Close School from 1979-1998, who fundraised tirelessly to build his dream. Today the 566-seat Bacon Theatre plays host to the best in professional touring theatre, live music, dance, film and celebrity speakers as well as an extensive range of productions by local talented youth and community groups and charities. Ideally situated on the A40 and just minutes from the M5, Dean Close School is in an enviable position for conferences, business meetings, residential education courses and celebratory functions. Only 5 minutes from the bustling centre of Cheltenham, its campus style site is an amiable mixture of old and new buildings, surrounded by peaceful, landscaped grounds and fantastic sporting facilities. Choose from our range of comfortable, elegant amenities and our experienced and dedicated team will be on hand to ensure the smooth running of your important day.
