Bath's Original Theatre Royal and Masonic Museum


The Old Theatre Royal is an anonymous building in a quiet cobbled backstreet in the city of Bath, with a unique 265 year history. This was the first Theatre Royal outside of London.  It held many Shakespearean productions and entertained royalty regularly.  The theatre then became a Catholic Chapel in the early 1800’s.  It became home to the Benedictine Mission to Bath and was their principal place of worship.   Now, The Old Theatre Royal is home to one of England’s oldest Masonic Lodges.  The Masonic Lodge still use the Masonic Hall on a regular basis.
