Marlborough Civic Theatre Trust
The Marlborough Civic Theatre Trust was formed as a non for profit organisation on 16th November 1974 following the demolition of His Majesty’s Theatre with the principal objective of establishing a new theatre for the Marlborough community to use.
After many years of research, planning and community fundraising, this dream was realised with the opening of a new theatre located in the former Farmers Department Store on Arthur St, Blenheim on the 15th February 1985.
For 31 years the FloorPride Marlborough Civic Theatre was the arts and entertainment hub for our region, providing a wide and varied range of performing arts and entertainment opportunities for participants and patrons.
Now the dream of providing a theatre was further extended when the ASB Theatre Marlborough (which replaces the FloorPride Marlborough Civic Theatre) opened on 16th March 2016. This multi-use and purpose built venue is situated overlooking Blenheim’s Taylor River. It is now operational and provides a key asset within our community with high levels of community use and excellent patron and public support.
