Queens Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent


The Queen's Theatre (originally Queen's Hall) is a theatre building in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, England. It is situated in Wedgwood Place in the town centre.

It is a Grade II listed building, listed on 19 April 1972.

It was commissioned as Burslem's town hall, to replace the town hall built in the 1850s, and was built by the architects Russell and Cooper. Completed in 1911, after the Federation of Stoke-on-Trent in 1910 made its original purpose obsolete, the building was opened as the Queen's Theatre, a venue for drama, concerts and other entertainments.

Requiring repairs, the theatre closed in 1998. From 2003 events occasionally took place; it closed again in 2014.
