Have you ever wondered where the cast go when they nip off the stage, or where they come from when they mystically appear?

Then join us for our popular Behind the Scenes Tour!

Enjoy a tour of Bournemouth’s magnificent original 1929 Grade 2 Listed Pavilion. On the tour, you’ll be looked after by a well-informed, enthusiastic guide who will give you insight into what goes on behind the scenes, both backstage, and in the Pavilion’s Ballroom.


Tickets are available in advance and on the day. They’re £5 from our website or Ticketing Office at the Pavilion. Tours are limited to 25 people, although larger groups can be accommodated by request.

Please note: All tours vary according to what is available on the day and a visit to the theatre stage is not guaranteed; it is never possible to attend stage rehearsals. Remember that you are visiting a working theatre and plans may change at short notice. Photography is not always permitted on backstage tours – your guide will confirm this on the day. Tours are subject to cancellation due to operational issues. The tours include access to technical areas via many steep stairs.


To avoid congestion we strongly recommend that you allow up to an hour before the event commencement time to find a parking space. Visit our Parking page for details of our car parks and others within walking distance of the BIC and Bournemouth Pavilion.


Patrons with accessibility or special seating requirements are kindly requested to call BH Live Tickets on 0300 500 0595 who will endeavour to provide the best and most appropriate service.
