The Gatehouse Theatre is in the heart of Stafford, just seconds from the main shopping centre and central tourist attractions. It is less than 10 minutes from Junctions 13 and 14 of the M6 (just follow the theatre mask symbols on routes into the town).

The theatre is directly accessible from the town’s pedestrianised area and Market Square. Cycle racks are available outside the building. Helipads are not (apologies).
