“Clonter remains the place to see tomorrow’s top talent make its first appearance.”
Robert Thicknesse, Opera Now
Clonter believes in the power of theatre to enhance quality of life, empower young people and provide a stimulating environment for people of all ages to escape the rigours of everyday life.
We have bold plans for the future but we need your help to turn those plans into reality. Every ticket sold, subscription or donation that you make directly supports and protects the future of Clonter.

A Year In The Life Of Clonter
Our Photographer-In-Residence, Jack Thompson, who you may recall mounted an exhibition, and also produced a beautiful glossy book of his work. Now Jack has most generously formatted this so it is available in digital form on line, which we are now delighted to present to you – with over 200 plates – capturing performances, as well as rehearsals and looking behind the scenes.
