Long Description:
The theatre is owned by the same company who own the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre) just round the corner. The theatre venue also has a ballroom and hosts live shows ranging from plays, ballet, opera, wrestling and ballroom dancing. Many celebrities have been known to tour here.

The website describes the history behind the Pavilion:
'The PAVILION THEATRE and BALLROOM is Bournemouth's traditional venue for year round entertainment. Built in the 1920s, it retains its splendour and elegant styling and is Bournemouth's regular home for West End stage shows, Opera, Ballet, Pantomime and Comedy as well as for corporate presentations and dinner dances, product launches and small conferences.

In particular the Ballroom enables you to hold gala dinners, fashion shows or other activities to complement a conference or exhibition in the BIC.

Refurbished in 2007, the Pavilion Theatre holds a seated audience of 1012 in fixed seats on a raked floor, with a further 446 in the circle. The Ballroom provides an exquisite backdrop for banquets, receptions, social functions and even small fayres and exhibitions.'
