The Beacon, opened January 2013, at Customhouse Quay in Greenock and overlooks the River Clyde estuary towards the hills of Argyll and Dunbartonshire. There can be few theatres in the country which will enjoy such a spectacular location.

The Beacon has 2 performing spaces, together with a Bistro/Bar and 3 large rehearsal rooms which can be extended to provide a function suite for up to 170 guests. The new building will use cutting-edge theatre technology as well as providing wi-fi, online bookings and infrastructure for live television broadcasts.
