About

Built in 1805, the Georgian Theatre Royal was beautifully refurbished in 2010. The Main House offers a year-round programme of top-quality drama, including many West End productions, opera, comedy, dance and frequent Sunday concerts.

The Theatre Royal also houses the Egg Theatre for children, young people and their families, and the Egg Café; the cutting-edge Ustinov Studio, which produces nationally acclaimed seasons of UK premieres, interspersed with contemporary drama, comedy and music from visiting companies; and the historic Garrick's Head Pub.

The Theatre Royal's many regular events include the Summer Season and a traditional family pantomime at Christmas.
