Our historic indoor theatre!

Memorial Hall

Enjoy performances in the cool and comfort of this 373 seat professional theatre, originally built by the community to commemorate the young men lost in Europe in World War One. Memorial Hall is a living Cenotaph.

Renovated in 2017

Fully renovated in 2017, Memorial Hall is at the heart of the community here in Blyth, hosting Blyth Festival performances during the summer, and occasionally throughout the autumn and winter.

Performances

Shows at Memorial Hall run from June through September. All performances start at 2pm or 8pm so audiences can enjoy the best of Canadian theatre in air-conditioned comfort.

If you want a feast of theatre, you can enjoy an afternoon performance, dine in town, and then join the audience at the outdoor Harvest Stage for an evening performance.

Seating Plan

All seats at Memorial Hall, whether in the orchestra or in the balcony, have an excellent view of the stage.

Blyth Festival Memorial Hall FAQs

Please arrive 20-30min ahead of the performance start time to allow for parking and, if necessary, collecting your printed tickets for the box office.

For Memorial Hall performances, free parking is available in the parking lot beside the pharmacy across the street, or on any side street within the designated spaces (please obey any signage posted by the township). There is also a Municipal Parking Lot across the street from the theatre at 209 Drummond St as well as some parking on the main street (Queen St). You can also park at the Arena and walk down to Memorial Hall.

Memorial Hall’s ground floor is fully accessible. Memorial Hall has a lift that allows barrier free access to the Orchestra Level. The rows of the Orchestra are on a raked floor, so while the aisles do not have any stairs they are sloped.

The lift also can take patrons to the Balcony level. However, there are a couple of stairs to reach the Balcony entrance door and the rows are on three (stepped) tiers. Therefore the Balcony seating is not accessible to patrons unable to climb stairs.

Tickets are printed on the day of the performance and are held for pick-up at the Box Office. Memorial Hall’s Box Office is in the main Memorial Hall building at 431 Queen St.

The Box Office staff will have your tickets printed and ready for pickup, and can answer any questions you have. We can also mail your tickets to you.

Memorial Hall is fully air conditioned, so please come suitably dressed for a lovely afternoon of theatre! Some patrons may find it a little chilly, so we recommend bringing a light sweater, just in case.

Please do not attend the theatre if you are not well, or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Call the Box Office and alternate arrangements will be discussed.

Memorial Hall has fully accessible restrooms on the ground floor and an additional accessible restroom located on the orchestra level.

We know that masking is one way we can continue to care for each other as a community.  Our long term planning is dedicated to keeping our performers, volunteers, and audience as safe as possible throughout the summer.  We are also particularly cognizant of members of our community who are immunocompromised and at greater risk.  However, in line with current regulations, masking is not required at Memorial Hall.  Blyth Festival welcomes and supports patrons who choose to wear a mask.

Hearing Assist Devices are available at all Memorial Hall performances – please ask the Box Office or Front of House staff for yours.

All productions at Memorial Hall will have an intermission. Please see the show-specific pages for intermission details.

Memorial Hall bar will be open pre-show and at the intermission (when there is one).

No pets are allowed in at Memorial Hall performances, with the exception of service dogs.
