Epstein Theatre

Susie Stubbs

Formerly known as the Neptune, and built on Hanover Street in Liverpool in 1913, it has now been renamed the Epstein Theatre, in honour of The Beatles’ Manager Brian Epstein.Threatened with permanent closure several times, the theatre reopened in May 2012 after a £1.2m refurbishment. Even with the refurbishment, the interior has kept its cosy, historic interior but a new sociable bar area has been created. The programme of shows is mixed, from panto to live music and opera.
