Set on the busy Ulster University campus in Coleraine, the theatre serves not only the staff and student population but the wide reaching Causeway Coast & Glens community with a 140,000 + population.

This geographically stunning location includes UNESCO World Heritage site, the Giant’s Causeway, and attracts substantial visitors and tourists into the area annually.


The Riverside Theatre venue itself is an intimate 278 – 350 seat auditorium offering a vast annual programme, for children and adults, of comedy, dance, music, drama and art.
