The Whitehall Theatre is one of the jewels in Dundee’s cultural crown. The theatre has stood proudly in the city for almost 100 years, initially built as a cinema, the venue as we now know it came into existence in the 1960’s and has provided the city with a home of entertainment ever since. The theatre is around a 10 minute walk west of the city centre, situated across from The University of Dundee, just off the Hawkhill. The theatre plays host to music acts, musicals, comedians, dance troupes and so much more.
