The theatre is run by the M.A.T.A. (Minehead Amateur Theatrical Association) Regal Theatre Company, a group of volunteers devoted to bringing to the people of West Somerset a wide variety of quality film and performing arts in the centre of Minehead.Why the community needs us
West Somerset roads make it difficult to travel to entertainment areas outside the district especially in the summer or in poor weather or at night. The theatre offers the highest possible quality of entertainment and performing art at prices which local people can afford. It also offers a community performance venue which schools and organisations in the area can use for presentations & performance. The high number of volunteers involved provides a vibrant social network which people enjoy.Our impact on the community
The Friends of the Regal Theatre and community supporters have generously supported the Regal throughout 2017/2018. In the past eighteen months we installed a high quality film screen to enable live screening from national arts performance theatres.. Is the job over? NO! We are currently fundraising towards improving our heating system and to maintain the fabric of the theatre.
The Regal Theatre survives on the support of volunteers. We always welcome new people, who can get involved by helping with Front of House, Box Office, Publicity Technical help with shows, Cleaning, Maintenance and Renovation work around the theatre.
