Gorleston Pavilion or Pavilion Theatre is located near the mouth of River Yare in the town of Gorleston-on-sea in the English county of Norfolk. Commonly described as an Edwardian Theatre, it was built in 1898 and was designed by the Borough Engineer J W Cockrill.[1] The auditorium has no rake and there is a balcony at the rear, which is used by the technical staff and is currently closed to the public. The proscenium was rebuilt in 1919. The building contains a large upper room with a balcony providing a view of Gorleston beach and cliffs.
