Norwich Theatre Royal

Norwich Theatre Royal

Details

With over 250 years of presenting theatre in the centre of Norwich, the Theatre Royal is the largest and most successful theatre in the east of England. Over 400,000 people attend over 400 performances each year, ranging from shows for pre-school age children to grand opera, and everything in between. We feature the best of West End shows from big musicals to great dramas, alongside dance, comedy, family shows, opera and music.

Norwich Theatre Royal is an educational charity, working with thousands of local young people each year across training courses in theatre skills; educational visits and workshops; and work with the wider community as well. Stage Two is its new education and training centre (opened 2016) which houses all this work, and the theatre’s Learning & Participation team.

The theatre has 1300 seats, spacious front of house areas with two bars, two function rooms and a café/restaurant and is fully accessible. Regular access performances are scheduled: British Sign Language Interpreted performances, Audio Described performances, Captioned performances and relaxed performances.

Ticket prices for every performance start from £10, and we aim to keep the top prices at around 60-70% of what you’d pay in the West End for the same show or similar.

If you’re coming to the theatre more than two or three times a year, then you should consider joining the Friends scheme, which offers priority booking, discounts on tickets and access to special events, all from as little as £15 a year.
