The Derngate was opened in 1983. A Northampton Borough Council initiative, the venue was designed by RHWL for multi-purpose use. It can be configured to stage a variety of events including classical concerts, musicals, opera, dance and even 'in the round' events such as snooker tournaments. It has a maximum capacity of 1,500 for classical concerts, with 1200 seats for 'lyric' performances and has been run as a touring theatre since.
