About The Marlborough Civic Theatre

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.

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.

As well as operating the FloorPride Marlborough Civic Theatre, the Trust also owns and operates two theatre related businesses: a ticketing franchise under the TicketDirect brand and a theatrical equipment hire company – Marlborough Light & Sound.

The Board is in the process of developing a new facility, the ASB Theatre Marlborough.  The new ASB Theatre Marlborough, which is due to open in early 2016, is a multi-use and purpose built venue. It is situated overlooking Blenheim’s Taylor River. This will mean that you can come and enjoy all that Marlborough has to offer while enjoying the comfort of this new outstanding venue.  It will offer state-of-the-art facilities and amenities for your Live Performance, Performing Arts, Conferences and Function events.

Mission and Vision

The mission of the Marlborough Civic Theatre Trust is to grow a viable and dynamic community owned arts and theatre centre for the people of Marlborough. Providing an environment, in which the diversity of skills can be nurtured, encouraged and celebrated while striving for excellence.

It is our vision to provide a centre of excellence for arts and performance.
