Guided Tour, from 23 Oct 2019

Showtime at Gorleston Pavilion

Showtime at Gorleston Pavilion

Details

The Pavilion is an original Edwardian building opened in 1901 and is a shining example of the famed architecture of the day. Enjoy a guided tour in the backstage spaces not open to the public and take in the history of this beautiful seaside gem.

Our guided tours have been in the past exclusively held for friends of the Theatre but we are throwing open our doors now once a month to everyone who wants to come and have a look around this original Edwardian building.

You'll be guided around the building and shown spaces that have important historical significance to the area and will be talked through how the building has survived the sands of time and seen many different uses over the years.

Finish the tour with a spectacular view of the historical gardens opposite the theatre and the golden sands of Gorleston beach stretching for as far as the eye can see. This is certainly a treat you won't want to miss!

We just ask for a small donation towards our Restoration Fund.

2020 Tour Dates will be announced later this year.
