Nottingham Art Theatre

Nottingham Arts Theatre is a theatre on George Street in Nottingham, England. Formerly known as the Co-op Arts Theatre,[citation needed] it is located in the former George Street Particular Baptist Church building.

It has a seating capacity of 321 in the Auditorium and a newer 50-seat studio theatre. It is operated by a charity and the local acting community. It has seen a few notable entertainers on its stage such as some of the members of Nottingham-based band Dog Is Dead. It also premiered the stage version of Alan Sillitoe's novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. It also stages a pantomime and a youth theatre production annually.

It also hosts the Nottingham Gilbert and Sullivan society's productions.
