Where are you?

The Lucky Chance is perched high on the hill on the Portway. You might remember it as the former Portway Methodist Chapel.  We use What Three Words so people can find us quickly.  Our location is here:



Here we are on Google Maps:


Our venue has no parking and can only be accessed on foot. 

If you are driving, then we suggest using the car park behind Marks & Spencer known as Merchants Barton (use Saxonvale, Frome BA11 1PW for satnavs). We are a short walk away, although we'd be lying if we said it wasn't up a hill...


Occasionally we are able to offer parking in arrangement with a nearby business. Please check events pages for details. 


We care deeply about our neighbours and we mustn’t let our shows or work disrupt their parking, so we urge you NOT to park along Alexandra Road. We do need to prove to both our neighbours and the council that our presence at The Lucky Chance won’t create a new parking nightmare. Please help us!

Are you accessible to all?

We are committed to making our venue welcoming, inclusive and accessible to all, and are constantly striving to find new ways to ensure everyone feels welcome here. Whether you’re a seasoned theatre-goer or trying it out for the first time, we want you to have a memorable and enjoyable experience. 

The venue is not currently very wheelchair friendly, but we’re working on that. There are several steps up to our doors if approached from the Portway. If approached from the footpath at Singer’s Knoll, there are fewer steps but it's a longer walk. There are also steps within the building itself. But we don't want this to put you off! If you have any access needs or are concerned about how you might get around the space, please call or email us as we're confident we can make it work for you.

Can I hire The Lucky Chance for my own event?

The Lucky Chance is not currently available for private rentals, parties, weddings or other events, as we still have work to do on the space. We do plan to make it available for private hire, though, so please feel free to contact the office to see what's possible.
