A home for creativity, UKZN’s Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre is a professionally staffed and equipped 400 seater proscenium arch venue, with coffee bar and pub facilities, and subscribing to the highest standards of theatrical presentation.

Founded in 1981 by the late Professor Elizabeth Sneddon, the EST has the proud reputation of being the first theatre to service a drama department at an academic institution. The theatre is now also available for hire by outside companies, and therefore hosts a wide variety of independently produced events, ranging from corporate functions and launches to dance programs, children’s shows, music reviews, rock concerts, comedy, satire and drama.
