The Quay (theatre) began life in 1791 as the principal Sudbury Warehouse, ‘The Great Granary’ for The River Stour Navigation Company.  It experienced a chequered career after the Company went into liquidation in 1913, and, when members of Sudbury Dramatic Society first explored it in 1977, was being used as a store for bulldozers and cement mixers.

In December 1977 the building was purchased by Sudbury Dramatic Society (SDS) for £15,000 and their members set about converting the building into a headquarters and theatre on a voluntary basis.  After the need had been proven, outside fundraisers were brought in in 1980 to help raise the estimated £120,000 needed to fully convert the building.

From 1st January 1981, Richard Dunning was appointed as Development Officer to oversee the fundraising process and building work.  Progress was swift; George Parker, a former Mayor of Sudbury and Manager of John Hilary Travel, became the Chairman of the newly formed Quay Development Trust – a body set up to protect donors’ money.

In May 1981 contractors moved in to commence building work and on 5th December, The Quay was officially opened by local celebrity Geoff Kisby in the presence of top comedian/actor Max Wall.
