The Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster is a key UK theatrical venue for presenting and commissioning experimental theatre, contemporary dance and live art.

The Nuffield Theatre, sited at the north end of the Lancaster University campus, is one of three theatres in Lancaster and the City's only professional 'black-box' studio theatre.  The Nuffield's stage is extremely large and is adaptable to any form of seating configuration with a width of up to 25 metres and a seating capacity of up to 220, it effectively combines scale and intimacy.

As well as presenting up to 30 visiting professional shows a year, from some of the best-known and respected contemporary theatre and dance companies from the UK and abroad, this key Lancaster theatre also presents public performances by students, societies and a range of local community organisations.
