History of the Blakehay Theatre

Built in 1850, the building was Weston-Super-Mare’s first Baptist church and first public building. The building closed as a place of worship in 1985 and was converted into a venue for amateur and professional events and public meetings and renamed ‘The Blakehay’. Weston-super-Mare Town Council purchased the theatre in 2004.
