About the Theatre

The Spotlight Theatre has a comfortable auditorium seating nearly 500. Formerly Broxbourne Civic Hall, you'll find it beside the car park near the junction of Hoddesdon High Street and Cock Lane.

It's right on the doorstep from Cheshunt, Cuffley, Goffs Oak, Waltham Abbey, Waltham Cross and Wormley, close to Enfield, Hertford, Chingford, Epping,North London and Harlow and within reasonable travelling distance of Hertfordshire towns such as Stevenage, Ware, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and Bishops Stortford.

Terrace seats are fully tiered and there is a large licensed bar which opens one hour before evening performances. To avoid the interval rush, you are recommended to order interval drinks from the bar before the show starts.

Travel Information

Travelling North from Broxbourne traffic lights, look for the Police Station on the left and the theatre's approach road (very short length of dual carriageway) which is next after the police station and arts centre/museum. 
Travelling South
from Hoddesdon Town Centre, turn right at the Cock Lane roundabout and left before the car park.

See this town centre plan, or if travelling from further afield, see this wider map view.

By public transport: Arriva bus services 310 and 310A pass the entrance. Alight at Hoddesdon Police Station.
You can use this
journey planner (filling in destination as EN11 8BE) to find complete routes by bus or train from any address in the area.
Alternatively you can see the Arriva 310 and 310A
timetables. Timetables may still show the venue as Broxbourne Civic Hall which is between "Hoddesdon, Amwell St, Clock Tower" and "Broxbourne, High Road, Post Office" on the bus timetable.

Please note: 310/310A services no longer run at night. You can still travel to and from the theatre by bus for afternoon performances. For evening performances you will only be able to travel to the theatre by bus, and will therefore need to make other arrangements for the return journey. Trains continue running later, but evening trains do not stop at all stations, so you may need to arrive and depart from different stations.
