Click here for: What's on at The Milton Rooms, Malton. We (the Milton Rooms Committee) have the ambition to make the Milton Rooms a truly regional centre for the performing and visual arts. We have transformed the Milton Rooms into a centre for the performing arts. We also have plans to include studios etc. for the visual arts.Last year we relaunched the venue and for the first time in decades Malton saw first class performances by national stars (including Barrie Cryer and Georgie Fame). We have a first class theatre team - well-known actor Garry Cooper and west end theatre director, Nick Bagnall. So please support our events.

As far as I know, this is the first time ever that the Milton Rooms has produced a World Premiere production. "A Christtmas Fair" is written specially for the Milton Rooms by Jim Cartwright, an international multi-award winning playwright/screenwriter, with plays which include Road, Two Bed, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice - and now "A Christmas Fair".The professional actors engaged in the production are Ian Bartholomew, Virginia Denham, Julian Firth, Helen George and Gareth Pierce. These are all professional theatre and TV actors. The play is directed by Nick Bagnall, a professional theatre director who runs the Milton Rooms with Garry Cooper. We have Nick and Garry to thank for their vision in seeing a great potential for the Milton Rooms  at a time when many people were writing it off and talking about pulling it down.

Performances of "A Christmas Fair" finshed on Friday 21st December 2012.
