Heritage Open Days - Explore Behind the Scenes

Dating back to 1787 and remodelled by the Victorians, the Theatre Royal is proud to be the 2nd oldest working theatre in the UK, described by the Theatres Trust as “of major significance” and a Grade ll* listed building.

As part of the nationwide Heritage Open Days scheme, the Theatre Royal is opening its doors FREE of charge for the day. Come along and sit in the Royal Box, go mermaid spotting, check out the view from the Gods and soak up the historic atmosphere.

The theatre will be open all day FREE of charge, but if you’d like to explore backstage as well, why not join one of our guided backstage tours?

Backstage tours for small groups, guided by our technical staff will run at 10.30am, 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm and will last approx. 45 minutes.  Booking required.

This is part of a national Heritage Open Days Scheme
