In the Surrey district, in close proximity to Reigate, Redhill and Gatwick Airport lies a small town called Horley. It is home to mainly commuters due to its fast links to London and major towns such as Crawley.
In history, the town was mainly a forested marsh area. Manor Horley was a prominent house which became under the ownership of Benedict Abbey of St Peter. It was later passed down to Henry VIII and then changed hands frequently over the next 60 years.
Horley is home to Archway Theatre which is Britain's only underground theatre. It is located under the arches of the Victoria Road railway bridge and has a capacity of 100. The theatre organises and presents 10 varying productions every year as well as homing productions from local schools and studio events.
