Brentwood Theatre is located behind “The Hermitage” on Shenfield Road, 90 yards from Wilson’s Corner roundabout. Their car park is not usually available for theatre users. Members with sales/ display material or elderly/ infirm colleagues can gain access on arrival at the barrier. Vehicles enter a gateway alongside The Hermitage.

There are various car parks; plus on-street parking in Sawyers Hall Lane. The Council Office car park in Ingrave Road is NO LONGER a free Saturday shopper’s car park. The North Road car park is about eight minutes walk from the theatre but is a pay car park. Do not park in Sainsbury’s Car Park
