Babbacombe Theatre is in South Devon, in the town of Torquay. It has become particularly well known for hosting musical tribute acts and variety shows, and has also drawn loyal audiences each year to its annual Christmas production. It stages many local productions, as well as being the venue for the "Torbay's Got Talent" show. Live bands have also always been on offer, with the musical menu focusing pretty squarely on the popular music of the day. You can buy or sell Babbacombe Theatre tickets on StubHub.
Musical tribute shows have become a major drawcard for the theatre
Babbacombe Theatre is an integral part of the local community, helping to develop and nurture local talent. The theatre itself grew out of the original bandstand on the site, which was built in the early 1920s. It was augmented by a canvas awning in the 1930s in order to accommodate larger crowds of spectators, but this flimsy arrangement made for some windy performances, with the result that a more permanent larger building was constructed in 1938, and named the Babbacombe Downs Concert Hall. The modern theatre came about after a refurbishment in the mid 1980s. It's since made a strong name for itself by staging highly popular musicals, and fans of the world's most famous pop artists have made a point of regularly visiting the venue to take in show like Thank ABBA for the Music and the Fleetwood Bac tribute band. There are also some real throwback productions, like The Very Best of Burt Bacharach. It's a comfortable venue, with plush seating and acoustics that do an excellent job of projecting the sound from the stage all the way to the furthest seats. It's a firm local favourite in Torquay and you'll easily discover why when you get some Babbacombe Theatre tickets.

Lots of stand-up comedy also on offer
The other main claim to fame of the Babbacombe Theatre is the excellent array of stand-up comedians that it hosts all year round. It's a very good place to discover plenty of hidden gems, artists you're not likely to find performing much outside of the region. At the same time, some of the most acclaimed UK comedians have appeared here as well, such as Gyles Brandreth, David Baddiel and Ed Byrne. On the variety show front, audiences have always been well spoilt, with shows like Steve Laister's Superstars and Spirit of the Blitz, which celebrates the music that sustained Britons during their "darkest hour" of the twentieth century.
