First known as the Piazza, the Embassy has been located on Skegness' Grand Parade since 1926, comprising a dance hall and an area for an orchestra to play live music. The venue was destroyed by a storm in 1978 and in 1982 was refurbished as the Embassy Centre, then again in 1999.

The King of Comedy, Ken Dodd, has a long-standing association with the Embassy Theatre and others who've also tread the boards over the years include George Formby, Danny la Rue, Eartha Kitt, Jimmy Carr, Jools Holland many more.

At the rear of the theatre there is a pay and display car park, plus an overflow car park nearby. The venue is close to the town centre and handy for bars, shops and hotels, as well as the bus and train stations.
