In 1891 William Gladstone MP was invited to Port Sunlight by the first Lord Leverhulme to officially open the Gladstone Hall - as a dining and recreation room for male workers in the Lever Brothers Soap Factory.
Since then, it has seen a variety of uses. Port Sunlight Players started performing plays and musicals in the hall in the 1920's. The raked floor of the auditorium was installed in the 1950s.
The Gladstone Theatre Trust was formed in 1984 following discussions between the two resident societies - Port Sunlight Players and Fortune Theatre Group - and the building's owner (UML Limited – now Port Sunlight Village Trust). At that time, the hall was renamed The Gladstone Theatre.
