Rose Theatre Kingston
Inspired by the Elizabethan Rose Theatre on London’s Bankside, where many of Shakespeare’s plays were first seen. The Rose’s stunning auditorium has a capacity of up to 900 people and is a stunning space for any large scale event.
The Gallery is a light and airy space on the second floor of the venue suitable for meetings, presentations, receptions and corporate events.
The Rose’s versatile Studio provides an intimate space to work in and is an ideal setting for small scale performances, meetings, presentations, workshops and rehearsals.
The Café at the Rose
The Café at the Rose is a bright and stylish space on the ground floor. By day, the Café Bar offers a fine selection of homemade cakes, paninis and a selection of teas and coffee. A range of quality wines, sprits and bottled beers can be served for afternoon and evening events.

We are 1 minute's walk from Kingston's ancient Marketplace, opposite the Guildhall and the Police Station.
From the Train Station it's a pleasant 10-12 minute stroll. Starting from the train station cross the one-way system and walk down Fife Road - you'll reach the side of the Bentall Centre. Walk left then right round to the Bentall Centre's main entrance, then cross pedestrianised Clarence St into Memorial Square. Walk past 'Accessorise' on your left handside and into the Marketplace. Continue on through the market place and over the Clattern Bridge at the far end, along the High Street to the Rose.
The following routes serve the town centre: K1, K2, K3, K4, 57, 65, 85, 111, 131, 213, 216, 285, 371, 406, 411, 418, 465. Please note travel information is subject to change.
Kingston town centre is largely pedestrianised. A one way system is in operation in Kingston and this can be extremely busy during peak traffic periods. Please leave yourself plenty of time when driving to the Rose Theatre. The nearest parking is the Rose Car Park which is open until midnight, the entrance to which is on East Lane (KT1 2NN). As the Rose is a new building and not yet recognised by older Satnav systems, those not wishing to park should using the following postcode: KT1 1LB (Kingston Police Station).
If you are attending an evening performance, as long as you enter the car park after 5.30 you will only pay £2 for the whole evening (normally at least £3 depending on duration of stay). To take advantage of this offer, you need to present your entry ticket at the Box Office before the show begins. We will charge the discounted fee and issue an exit ticket. Anything presented to Rose Theatre staff after this time may not be accepted and full car park fees will be applicable.
There are two different types of Coach parking bays in Kingston. The majority of these are Coach Stops which allow Buses or Coaches to set down or pick up passengers. These bays are free of charge but some have a maximum stay period.
The other type of bay is a Coach Stand where coaches may park for long stay periods. Charges apply at Coach Stands and the permitted hours, maximum stay times and charges are indicated on the nearby sign plates and on the adjacent pay & display machine.
