The Lenches Amphitheatre

A Unique & Exciting Modern Amphitheatre for the Arts

The Lenches Amphitheatre

The Lenches Amphitheatre is a unique and exciting modern amphitheatre for the arts, set within the rural community of The Lenches, in the beautiful Vale of Evesham. Nestled into the natural curve of the land, the outdoor theatre sits alongside The Lenches Sports & Recreation Club, in a truly wonderful site, which offers spectacular views across the Severn Valley to the stunning Malvern, Clent and Abberley Hills in the West.

The 250-seater venue provides a superb amenity, bringing theatre and live music to The Lenches, not to mention a fantastic spot to watch the cricket on a Saturday afternoon! The new building next to the amphitheatre seating provides a brand-new green room, offering a flexible space and wide glass doors opening onto a balcony from which to view both the stage and take in the superb views. This iconic outdoor venue is a wonderful asset for the wider community, drawing a variety of performers and a multi-generational audience from far and wide. The Lenches Amphitheatre aims to host a wide programme of events, to appeal to all age groups, including a variety of outdoor theatre performances, live music concerts and community events.

Our Story

Learn how it all came about

The Lenches Sports Club has always wanted to make the most of this glorious location, a gentle slope of thirty metres, set into a curve, running down to the level surface of the wide-open sports field. The slope felt a little like an Amphitheatre. Read how we turned that vision into a reality.

The Lenches

The Lenches comprises a group of five, rural villages surrounded by farmland, woodland and orchards, set in the beautiful county of Worcestershire. Situated on a ridge, which forms the northern boundary of the Vale of Evesham, the word Lench is derived from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning a hill or area of high ground.

The Lenches Amphitheatre is located in the heart of Church Lench, the larger of the five villages and benefits from far reaching views across the valley and the River Severn to the spectacular Malvern Hills.

On a Summer evening, the view from The Lenches Amphitheatre is simply breath-taking and often accompanied by the most incredible sunsets.
